Your research team began by reviewing pre-compiled lists of sports ticket brokers or aggregators with their ticket sales volume. Some websites reviewed were Investopedia, Owler, and Tech Boomers. We found listings of some top sports ticket brokers and also top ticket resellers for all types of entertainment, but they were not accompanied by ticket sale volume.
Since we found the names of some of the most popular ticket brokers or ticket aggregators, we reviewed their websites looking for any financial reports or statements that many disclose the companies ticket sales for 2018 or the previous quarter. Some websites reviewed were StubHub and SeatGeek. We found information about the companies and their partners, but their financial information was not available through the websites.
Next, we decided to review team websites for some sports associations like the NBA and the NFL. Some team websites looked at were the Detroit Pistons, LA Lakers, and the New England Patriots. We found that most teams are using Ticketmaster to help fans resell tickets. We didn’t include Ticketmaster because they are not typically a ticket reseller.
