"Together with the NBA, we're building the sports industry's first comprehensive ticket destination that provides fans all of their ticketing options -- from both primary and resale - in one place," said Nathan Hubbard, CEO of Ticketmaster. "The NBA is determined to provide their fans a safe, convenient place to buy and sell game tickets, and we are delighted to be delivering this revolutionary solution."
"We are committed to ensuring that our fans receive the best in service and selection when it comes to purchasing individual game tickets, and Ticketmaster's proven ticketing solutions for both the primary and resale markets were the right fit for us," said NBA Executive Vice President of Team Marketing & Business Operations Chris Granger. "On behalf of our teams, we also appreciate Ticketmaster's commitment to analytics, data sharing, and marketing support. This partnership will be a winner for all involved."
