St. John's Athletics Selects StubHub to Serve as Official Ticket Marketplace

Secondary Ticket Leader Continues to Grow Stable of Top-Flight Collegiate Partners

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2007) - StubHub, the fan's ticket marketplace, has been selected by St. John's University Athletics to be the program's exclusive secondary ticketing partner. The multi-year agreement will further enhance the visibility and adoption of StubHub's industry leading ticket marketplace with exposure at St. John's athletic events held on-campus and at Madison Square Garden. The addition of the Red Storm marks the fifteenth collegiate athletic program currently partnered with StubHub, the most of any secondary ticketing company and a roster that already includes fellow BIG EAST Conference members Georgetown, Rutgers and West Virginia. StubHub currently boasts a total of 31 sponsorship partners across professional leagues and the NCAA ranks.

StubHub will be formally recognized as the "Preferred Ticket Marketplace of St. John's Athletics," where fans can easily buy or sell their Red Storm or other event tickets in the greater New York area in a convenient and secure marketplace dedicated to tickets. Red Storm fans with extra tickets can utilize the service and recoup an otherwise lost investment, while fans seeking better seats will have access to the widest selection of seating options.

"St. John's University is excited to be partnering with StubHub, the most trusted and popular brand in the secondary ticket market," said Chris Monasch, St. John's Director of Athletics. "We obviously feel a strong commitment to our fan base, and formally aligning with an organization that is similarly committed to fans' needs makes this partnership a natural one."

The new relationship with St. John's Athletics enables StubHub to further cement its popularity among the many passionate sports and music fans in the New York metropolitan area. Area fans regularly use StubHub to buy and sell tickets to the numerous entertainment options in the Big Apple. StubHub's unmatched customer service, unique delivery system, and FanProtect™ Guarantee will be key value points for Red Storm fans using the marketplace for the first time this season.

"St. John's was a very attractive program for us for a variety of reasons," said Danielle Maged, Director of Sports Partnerships & Business Development for StubHub. "The storied tradition, large and devout fan base for the men's basketball program and the opportunity for branding inside Madison Square Garden at high-profile BIG EAST Conference games were all strong draws for StubHub."
