“We are pleased to have this opportunity to expand our global partnership with StubHub,” said Shervin Mirhashemi, President, AEG Global Partnerships. “We have always had great respect and admiration for StubHub and their industry leading sponsorship activation in recent years and, it’s because of their tremendous success throughout North America and their dedication to creating great customer service experiences for guests that truly makes this such an important deal for AEG and the millions of fans that will be exposed to this partnership in the coming years.”
As part of a global partnership between AEG and StubHub parent company eBay, announced in November of 2012, StubHub will take an active role in the re-birth of the 10-year old facility that is home to Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy and Chivas USA. StubHub Center will remain an Official U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Site and the training center for the United States Soccer Federation, the United States Tennis Association and USA Cycling.
Focusing on its commitments to customer service and the fan experience, StubHub Center will introduce several fan friendly elements to the 125-acre multi-sport venue that includes a 27,000-seat soccer stadium, 8,000-seat tennis stadium, 2,450-seat indoor velodrome and 2,000-seat track and field facility.
“We welcome this new and exciting partnership with StubHub, an organization that, like us, emphasizes the highest level of customer services and fan experiences,” said Katie Pandolfo, General Manager of the AEG Facilities’ managed venue that will transition to StubHub Center this June. “We look forward to working with StubHub to design new programs and activation elements that will provide an even higher level of fan engagement and experience.”Starting in early June, the facility will be transformed into StubHub Center and will be officially re-launched at the June 19 MLS matchup when the LA Galaxy host the Portland Timbers.
