NEW YORK and W. HOLLYWOOD, CA (December 19, 2007) – The National Hockey League (NHL) and Ticketmaster today announced they have entered into an exclusive multi-year agreement to create an NHL resale ticketing service to be powered by Ticketmaster.  As part of the agreement, Ticketmaster has been named the “Official Resale Ticket Provider of the NHL.” 

    The NHL resale ticketing service will provide fans looking to buy or sell NHL tickets a safe, convenient and league-endorsed resale platform.  Ticketmaster will operate the official league-wide exchange that will be accessible from both Ticketmaster.com and NHL.com.  The service will undergo an initial launch this season and will become fully operational for the 2008-09 season.
   
    “Over 22 million people attend NHL games each season,” said John Collins, NHL Senior Executive Vice President Business & Media.  “Aligning the NHL brand with the global leader in ticket solutions to develop an NHL marketplace offers our fans a secure and reliable way to buy and resell NHL tickets.”

    “We could not be happier that the NHL has selected Ticketmaster to provide to fans the best possible resale experience,” said Eric Korman, Ticketmaster Executive Vice President. “Hockey fans will benefit from greater protection, flexibility and the unparalleled efficiency of our technology.  The NHL wins by providing to fans the ability to resell tickets in a safe and secure environment.  Our partnership will also make it easier for the League and its teams to connect with its millions of fans directly.”

    Ticketmaster now provides primary ticket services, including advance and onsite single-game ticket sales, season ticketing and group ticketing for 26 NHL teams.  Additionally, 14 NHL teams (the Anaheim Ducks, Atlanta Thrashers, Colorado Avalanche, Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks, Toronto Maple Leafs, Vancouver Canucks and Washington Capitals) already use Ticketmaster’s fan resale ticketing platform.
