Yankees Blame StubHub For Low Ticket Sales

You would think a service that allows you to get tickets to your favorite team that are normally snatched up by season ticket holders would be a good thing. The Yankees think otherwise.

The New York Yankees are blaming StubHub for their 3.6 percent drop in attendance this year. The strange thing is that many tickets are being sold on the site at a price much lower than face value these days, so you would think more people would be snatching these tickets up. But with the economy the way it is these days, the not so “newness” of the “New” Yankee Stadium  and the not so great play that the Yankees have been showing, some folks just aren’t going to the Ballpark. For some reason, Team President Randy Levine blames StubHub for all of this. Levine told the New York Post Yesterday:

“We believe there are serious issues with the StubHub relationship, we are actively reviewing more fan-friendly alternatives for next year.”

I don’t know how you can get more fan friendly than giving your fans a chance to get a ticket for only $5.  If people are putting these tickets on StubHub, the Yankees are still getting their money for the original tickets being sold. I am a Yankees fan, but I cannot blame StubHub in this argument.
