Red Sox To Launch Own Ticket Resale Website
Move over StubHub and ACE Ticket.
The Boston Red Sox are officially set to launch their own personal website, to help resell tickets for all games scheduled to be played at Fenway Park.
According to a Boston Globe report, the site, Red Sox Replay, is being put together with the help of both Tickets.com and Major League Baseball Advanced Media and is set to launch on March 1.
The site, which will be available on websites and a free MLB mobile app, is being touted as “'the safest, most secure and trustworthy site' in the ticket resale market." It will also take away the need for hard copy tickets, as both sellers and buyers will be able to transfer their tickets electronically.
The report also broke down how the money will work for both sellers and buyers. When selling tickets, season-ticket holders will be charged a five percent fee. Individual ticket holders will be charged 10 percent, however.
If you're a buyer, you'll be charged 15 percent plus a five dollar "processing fee."
