iHaveTickets.com ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF MLB PLAYOFF AND WORLD SERIES TICKET LISTINGS
September 30, 2003 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsSAN JOSE, CA., September 30, 2003 —- Listings for Major League Baseball Playoff and World Series tickets are now available to baseball fans at iHaveTickets.com. The website announced today that those wanting to resell their tickets can post their listings at no charge, while those wanting to see the MLB Divisional and /or Championship Series can search the listings in hopes of finding a ticket to the big game.
"Baseball fans looking for last minute playoff tickets can go to the site, find tickets of interest, and contact the seller directly, privately working out their own deal," said Jonathan Edwards, VP Marketing, iHaveTickets.com. "We're providing a venue for buyers and sellers of sports tickets to meet and privately buy and sell tickets.'
The reality is that a majority of true baseball fans won't have access to tickets through traditional outlets. As of Sunday night, tickets to see the San Francisco Giants, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs at home were sold out.
"We're making life a little easier for sports fans by providing them an outlet to find some hot sports tickets for their favorite teams at prices set by fans, and not by scalpers," said Edwards. Sports fans visiting iHaveTickets.com can also search for and buy tickets from eBay, OpenSeats and StubHub.
