Gloucester Rugby scores StubHub partnership

Online ticket marketplace StubHub has agreed a three-year deal with Gloucester Rugby to become the official ticket marketplace of the English Premiership rugby union club from the 2013-14 season.

The firm will enjoy shirt branding privileges as part of the deal, with the StubHub logo to appear on the back of first team players’ jerseys.

The deal marks StubHub’s third official Premiership club partnership, having also completed similar deals with Northampton Saints and Leicester Tigers.

Nick Harford, director of international partnerships at StubHub, said: “Extending our official presence in rugby is an important focus for us in the UK. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Gloucester from the 13-14 season, and look forward to providing season ticket holders and supporters alike with a safe and secure platform to sell and buy home match tickets, alongside activating the agreement more widely.”
