“There was no threat (to any individuals not to attend protest). It’s all bs,” said the source. “This group is funded by StubHub and StubHub is worried about its sales. Yankee fans don’t like StubHub.”
I’m having a tough time reconciling that with this.
Ticketmaster is expected to set minimum prices for at least some resale tickets. The agreement would dump the ticket exchange operated by StubHub, which allowed season ticket holders to easily sell their tickets at whatever price the market would bear, often below face value, potentially undercutting sales at the box office.
So the fans are upset that sales at the box office are being undercut by Stubhub?
How about this. Put a more compelling product on the field and watch your ticket sales increase.
