The UK’s largest boxing promoter, Matchroom Boxing, has a new partnership with the world’s largest ticket marketplace, StubHub (part of eBay Inc).
The partnership allows Matchroom to use StubHub as a platform to list face value tickets and also be the official resale channel for boxing fans for fights with high ticket demand.
Face value tickets will be listed transparently by StubHub on behalf of Matchroom with every listing denoting Matchroom Boxing as the seller on StubHub.co.uk. The price of any ticket listed for resale will be set by the seller and will not be influenced by either Matchroom or StubHub.
This agreement comes after a similar and successful partnership that StubHub had with leading Matchroom talent and Olympic champion Anthony Joshua in 2014. In addition to Joshua, the new partnership will now allow boxing fans to access tickets for fights in 2015 across the UK for leading British boxers including Carl Froch, Nathan Cleverly and Kell Brook.
