We are Tottenham Hotspur supporters who believe the club’s deal with StubHub is not in the best interests of fans buying or selling tickets, and has serious implications for football supporters of all clubs.
The way StubHub works is intrinsically against the best interests of supporters. The absence of restrictions on pricing has led, in some cases, to tickets being listed at up to 1,000% of face value.
Tottenham and StubHub actively encourage supporters to list tickets at high prices, emphasising the seller’s freedom to determine a ticket’s list price is a benefit in publicity for the service.
Malcolm Clarke, chair of the Football Supporters Federation has called sites like StubHub “legalised touts”. We have real concerns that the partnership threatens to make White Hart Lane unaffordable for most supporters.
The deal with StubHub was done without any consultation with supporters. If enough of us sign we will send a clear message to the club that this deal does not have the support of the fans and should be terminated at the earliest opportunity.
