Last month on TicketsNow, Ticketmaster’s resale marketplace, fans of live entertainment were flocking to arenas and ballparks across the country. Leading the way in popularity and sales overall were a number of Official Fan Marketplaces for Ticketmaster’s resale partners, including the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, New York Rangers, and US Open Tennis.

“We are thrilled to see several of our resale partners topping the list of hot events,” said Julia Vander Ploeg, TicketsNow General Manager. “Our ability to authenticate every ticket sold on our official fan marketplace partnerships is a big win with fans. They know they are getting a Ticketmaster-verified ticket with a unique barcode reissued expressly for them.”
