StubHub partners with Miami & FSU

Just in time for college football season, online ticket marketplace StubHub continues its march across Florida and into the ACC, adding the University of Miami and Florida State to its 15 other college and conference partners.

The partnerships mean UM and FSU fans have another option for buying and selling tickets to their favorite college team. Both schools include links right on their websites (UM and FSU) to StubHub’s ticket inventory.

StubHub entered Florida in 2007 with a multi-year partnership with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

As part of the partnerships with both schools, StubHub will have in-stadium signage, promotions and other advertising.

Additionally, Hurricanes fans can grab their tickets at the company’s brand new “Last Minute Services” pickup location in Miami, which was opened last month to accommodate demand for tickets to the new-look Miami Heat. StubHub typically halts sales two days before an event to accommodate express delivery. The company has last-minute pick-up offices in 10 other markets.

And with college football opening tonight, ticket sales for Florida and Florida State rank in StubHub’s top 25 in volume. Alabama and Ohio State rank first and second – just as they do in the AP’s Top 25. The Gators rank 11th in ticket sales and 4th in the AP poll; and the Seminoles rank 22nd in ticket sales and 20th in the AP poll.
