Updated June 10

The evolving COVID-19 situation has led to questions about what happens if an event gets canceled or postponed.

StubHub’s FanProtect Guarantee protects every order. The ticket you bought will get you into the event or we’ll contact you to indicate how to proceed with your purchase. StubHub’s award-winning customer service will help with any issues or concerns.

If an event is canceled, you don’t need to contact us. We are working with event organizers, leagues and partners around the world and will email you as quickly as we can.

This is a challenging time. We’re here to answer any questions you may have.  


Is my event affected by the coronavirus? 

We are waiting for official statements from the organizers. We will email you if your event changes in any way.

If you don't want to go or can't attend your event, you can resell your tickets.

Where can I get details or contact info?

We encourage you to monitor updates in our Help Center, where we will post any news. We also provide contact details on our website.


Will you tell me when my refund comes? 

We’ll email you when we start your refund. It may take a few more days for your bank to deposit it in your account

Can I get a refund if I don’t go to an event due to the coronavirus?

If the event is not cancelled, we won’t refund your order. You can resell your tickets and give someone else the chance to go.

If an event takes place behind closed doors, is there a refund for my ticket?

Unless the organisers offer something instead, we'll contact you to indicate how to proceed with your purchase. 

If the event isn’t cancelled but the team, venue, or ticket company is offering refunds, will you refund my order? 

We won’t refund your order if the event isn’t cancelled. You can relist your tickets if you’re not comfortable attending the event.

Why does it take so long to get my refund?

It takes longer because many events are impacted by the coronavirus at the same time. Also, some banks or credit cards may have a longer processing time. That’s why your refund may take some time to process. In some cases, we may need to ask you to send the original ticket back to us or to the seller before you can get a refund. 

Events and travel

What are my other options if I don’t go to an event due to the coronavirus?

You can sell your ticket and give someone else the chance to go.

What if I have tickets to multiple cancelled events?

We’ll email you about each event if it’s cancelled. 

Will StubHub reimburse my travel expenses?

StubHub won’t reimburse you for travel expenses. However, many airlines, car rental companies, and hotels are helping customers due to the virus. Contact your travel company for more info.

What's the difference between a cancelled or postponed/rescheduled event?

When events are officially postponed or rescheduled, they still happen but on a different day than originally planned.

If the event's postponed to a future, undetermined date, we'll email you when the details are announced.

What will happen to events impacted by government restrictions?

StubHub is an online ticket marketplace that brings together buyers and sellers. This means we don’t make official event decisions (like postponements, cancellations, etc.). These come from the event organizers. 


If an event is cancelled and not rescheduled, we'll contact you to indicate how to proceed with your purchase. 

Can I get a refund if I’m affected by travel restrictions due to the coronavirus?

You can resell your ticket and give someone else the chance to go.




What if I sold tickets for a cancelled event?

If you were already paid: We will charge you for the amount of your sale which will be deducted from future payments in order to reverse the transaction. Contact the original ticket company for a ticket refund.

What if I sold tickets to an event postponed due to the coronavirus? 

If you have already sent the tickets, you don’t need to do anything. We’ll email the buyer with the event details. They can either attend the event or resell the ticket. You are still responsible for sending the tickets to the buyer.
