MLB, StubHub renew secondary ticket market deal


NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball has agreed to a new five-year deal with StubHub as its secondary ticket market.

The original contract started in 2007 and expired after last season.

Financial terms of the agreement announced Monday were not disclosed.

MLB Advanced Media President and CEO Bob Bowman says "this renewal reflects its successes in an ever-evolving space."

StubHub, a subsidiary of eBay Inc., is the world's largest ticket marketplace. It allows fans to buy and sell tickets to events at market-rate prices.

StubHub President Chris Tsakalakis says the company plans to use new technology to improve consumers' experiences, especially on mobile devices.
