Hal on switch from StubHub to TicketMaster
By Andrew Marchand
It is only a statement, but Hal Steinbrenner showed off some passion as the Yankees officially moved from StubHub to TicketMaster.
"The Yankees Ticket Exchange will be a safe, convenient, reliable and expedient way to purchase and sell guaranteed authentic Yankees tickets," Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. "It is unfortunate that unscrupulous resellers utilize deceptive practices and tactics and employ unofficial websites, all of which give rise to counterfeit tickets."
The Yankees have argued for a long time that StubHub was bad for their business, deflating their ticket market and hurting their season ticket holders. Now, they are going to put their theories to the test.
