Founded in 2018, StubCrew was created to help connect fans with the best ticket deals on the events they love. StubCrew helped thousands of fans gain access to marquee events, but in the process we became frustrated that huge fees and massive markups were almost unavoidable. Invariably, sites with attractive prices hit buyers with enormous fees at checkout, or sites would post ridiculously inflated prices while boasting about “no fees.”
At first it seemed outrageous, but nearly all major ticket companies were established long before the arrival of technological innovations that should be increasing efficiency and driving costs down. TicketMaster was founded 40+ years ago, StubHub arrived 20 years ago, and even newcomers like SeatGeek arrived on the market alongside the iPhone 3GS. These companies were built for a time when tickets were paper delivered by the postal service, or UPS, and doing business required expensive office space.
In 2020 StubCrew launched a marketplace that is home to millions of tickets, priced competitively, with reasonable fees. By concentrating our business in digital and print at home tickets wherever possible, we can deliver 100% authentic tickets with lower shipping and handling costs. Leveraging cloud computing and remote work has enabled us to reduce overhead and pass along our best possible prices to buyers.
As it turned out, 2020 may not have been the ideal time to launch a new ticket platform. The live event industry was disrupted like never before, but we believe in the power of live events and are building for the future. Our mission is to make live events accessible for as many families as possible to go make memories that will last a lifetime.
In the time of COVID-19, it’s important to know that tickets sold through StubCrew are backed by our 100% guarantee. Events that are permanently cancelled and not rescheduled will be refunded. Tickets for postponed events will be honored at the future date.
As a resale marketplace, prices are set by third party sellers and are often above or below face value. StubCrew exists to connect fans with sellers of authentic tickets, at the best possible prices.
