Heavy Weight Olympic Boxing Champion Anthony Joshua Announces StubHub Partnership
One of Britain’s brightest boxing stars and 2012 Olympic gold medalist, Anthony Joshua, has today announced a new partnership with the world’s largest ticket marketplace, StubHub.
The partnership allows Anthony to reserve a limited amount of tickets for his fights, all of which will be sold at face value on a first-come, first-served basis.
The agreement will begin with Anthony’s next bout as he appears on the undercard for one of Britain’s biggest fights of the modern era, Froch v Groves at Wembley Stadium, London on May 31st. Anthony’s limited number of tickets will go on sale on Thursday 8th May exclusively at www.stubhub.co.uk.
In addition, if ticket holders for Anthony’s fights are unable to attend the event, StubHub provides a safe and secure platform should they choose to resell their ticket.
The partnership will also include branding on Anthony’s fight and pre-fight apparel with StubHub also giving fans the chance to win VIP Experiences in the build-up to his upcoming bouts.
Nick Harford, Director of Partnerships, International from StubHub said;
“It’s exciting to be involved with Anthony Joshua at the start of an already impressive professional career. We’re delighted this new partnership means his fans can access face value tickets for his fights, as well as benefit from the official platform should they wish to resell. Having fight apparel branding is a first for us, alongside having the ability to offer a number of VIP Experiences, which will include the chance to meet and watch Anthony train. We wish him well in his forthcoming fight on the Froch vs Groves undercard.”
James Williamson, Managing Director of Joshua’s management company The Sports Partnership said;
“The StubHub partnership gives us a great platform to service Anthony’s ever growing fan base from. We’re delighted that this is a first for StubHub and that’s testament to how rapidly Anthony’s career is developing and there couldn’t be a better time or place to launch a partnership than a sold out Wembley Stadium. “
