A handful of Madison Square Garden sales executives were fired after they were caught reselling tickets to New York Rangers and New York Knicks games on StubHub, according to the New York Post's Josh Kosman

The number of jettisoned employees reportedly sits around a half-dozen, and the round of terminations included a senior executive in ticket sales and corporate hospitality.

Citing a source, Kosman reported MSG employees purchased the cheapest tickets—which are generally held for group outingsand used the secondary market to sell them at higher prices. 

"It was uncovered through an internal investigation that a small handful of employees were breaking company policies and, as a result, they were relieved of their responsibilities," an MSG spokesman said in a statement, per Kosman. 

The executives reportedly circumvented protocol that requires employees to get permission from supervisors when purchasing tickets since they already had them at their disposal.
