Slashers posted that teams have formal agreements in place with StubHub. I expounded by listing the teams I knew of that have a partnership with StubHub. More to the point, those that do (the ‘Yotes included) have these formal partnerships so that the purchaser has the download/email & printing of tickets capability and in doing so through this process, minimizes fraudulent/counterfeit tickets.

Upon remembering where I just read that the other day I went back and posted said article.

Hope that finally clarifies my intent
