Built up over years, qualifying for all sales and moving on the ones they dont use.

Loads log into sales knowing they dont qualify, then post on Twitter saying they have one in their basket.
Bloke I bought my ticket from on Sunday was in the boozer immediately before and immediately after the game.
Have to assume he used another of his cards to enter the stadium.

I've seen lads in one of the nearby pubs come back with a clear plastic bag full of cards, absolutely dozens of them. Thought it was an awful lot but maybe they had the market sewn up, if they were 1 of many groups though..

Yeah, it was the same with my guy for the Barca game. 3 of us went. They probably had other cards.

That's where most of them come from.
"Supporters" with multiple members cards who qualify then sell on at a huge profit.

Loads log into sales knowing they dont qualify, then post on Twitter saying they have one in their basket. They then have the remainder of the 45 minutes log in time to swap members card details and secure the tickets.
Meantime, people who do qualify cant get logged in.

Didn't realise the extent, naively assumed supporters bothered to get the membership cards, but now you mention it it makes absolute sense! Bastards!

What I don't understand is why you are not required to log in at the point at which you enter the ticket site rather than at the point you have a ticket in your basket. Also, why there is no 'captcha' technology to weed out ticket bots. Very obvious this season that member's sales are being hijacked by organised touting.

I almost gave up at one point this season but fortunately I have a son who sits at a computer all day and takes as much satisfaction from snagging tickets for me as I do from going. Loads of people, particularly new members, must have been put off. For someone new it must seem almost impossible to navigate the system. Very frustrating because every game there are around 1000 empty seats. Even for Wolves seats were coming up on the site 2 days before the game.

Yep, it's very frustrating.
It's clear that the club either dont give a fuck about organised touting, or have hired complete idiots to design their ticket sales systems.

If for example tickets for Barca away go on sale, only allow people with the correct level of purchase history to log into the sale.
It's hardly rocket science to set something like that up, and if they really cared about genuine fans having a fair chance of purchasing tickets they've qualified for, they'd do something about it.

Yet another new member signed up only to try and blag tickets.

I thought there was a rule about this sort of shit?

Our ticketing system is an absolutely joke, I’ve been the same as you & nearly give up on tickets this season. There’s been a number of times I’ve been sat half an hour before the sale starts refreshing my browser non stop just before 8.15 just to be told I’ve got over an hour to wait before I can even enter. Then within 2 seconds of the sale starting it says “sold out”.

I was talking to a Stewart at Anfield before & he was saying there’s a way of getting round the system to be first in the cue but I can’t remember the method he told me.

:well done:


Liverpool FC has issued advice to supporters on the sale and purchase of Champions League final tickets via secondary and unofficial ticketing sites.

Fans are warned that buying tickets via unofficial online sources does not guarantee tickets are genuine or that they will actually receive them.

As part of its commitment to tackle ticket touting, the club has created a test purchase programme to help protect supporters from purchasing via unauthorised ticketing sites. The programme aims to identify and stop these sales.

While selling or offering to sell tickets without the permission of the club is a criminal offence, LFC also intends to impose sanctions on any supporters found to be selling tickets through unofficial secondary ticketing sites.

Sanctions could include ticket-buying suspensions and indefinite bans from Anfield. It could also mean that any tickets for the Champions League final in Madrid are invalid, and purchasers will be unable to gain access to Estadio Metropolitano.

As outlined earlier in this thread, maybe they should start a little closer to home.
