SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--StubHub, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, today announced that it has teamed up with Erin Andrews in support of its new national charity program, Girl’s Night Out, which encourages women to celebrate their love of sporting events and gives them an opportunity to win tickets to attend a game with their friends. A portion of proceeds from all ticket sales to the designated events will be donated to supporting Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing ongoing emotional help, hope, and healing to all who are grieving the death of a loved one in military service to America.
“StubHub's Girl's Night Out program is a great way for women to show their team spirit this fall”
"StubHub's Girl's Night Out program is a great way for women to show their team spirit this fall," said Erin Andrews. "I chose to work with StubHub on this because I know firsthand that many women are just as fanatical about going to games as men, and what better way to showcase that than being at a stadium with your friends and supporting such a great cause too."
Girl’s Night Out follows StubHub’s successful Mom’s Night Out initiative, which raised more than $250,000 for Adopt-A-Classroom. This new program launches as the company releases stats from Wakefield Research that find three in five women (59 percent) regularly follow at least one sport, with football as the top sport that gets girls to show their team pride. Over one-third (35 percent) of women would rather go to a game with their girlfriends than stay home and watch it with their significant other. The survey also discovered that one in five (20 percent) women say they know more than their significant other does about sports.
“Since I’m a huge sports fan myself, it’s no surprise to see our new stats confirm what we already suspected, which is that women are just as fanatical about sports as men are,” said Danielle Maged, Head of Partnerships and Business Development for StubHub. “We are happy to promote women’s love of the game, while also showing them how easy it is to use StubHub as a reliable, convenient source for their tickets, regardless of which team they support.”
In addition to donating a portion of the proceeds from Girl’s Night Out events, StubHub is also offering women a chance to enter to win a VIP experience for themselves and their friends to fun fall sporting events. Female fans can go to the Girl’s Night Out microsite to enter, sharing in 50-words or less and submitting a fan photo to show why they deserve a Girl’s Night Out.
