The football authorities today announced measures to stamp out ticketing agencies who sell tickets to Premiership matches at inflated prices.
The article in The Guardian reveals that any internet site carrying advertisements from unauthorized ticket agents will also itself be committing a criminal offense.
The story gives the example of how tickets to the Arsenal v Liverpool match have been priced as high as 395GBP ($753 US). While these prices are scandalous, you’ll know by reading this blog how hard it is to get tickets to Arsenal matches. While the football authorities have taken measures to allow fans to purchase additional tickets, my concern is that the steps taken are not going to stop ticket touts.
