Give yourselves the chance to be heros
- May 16, 2018
It wouldn’t make any sense for a club to sell directly to ticket agencies so these tickets must be coming from the fans. The club just needs to warn everybody that from now on they will be buying back black market tickets to identify the source then start cancelling season tickets and memberships. It would stop within a month and the tickets would go to real fans not corporate accounts. I work in the city and the whole corporate entertainment industry is basically blokes going to high profile sporting events with black market tickets. I knew scores of people who went on all expenses paid trips to the CL final and not a Liverpool or Tottenham fan among them. The same people won’t be singing “scouser tommy” at the Palace game that’s for sure.After reading @ epsomred's post I did a quick Google search and found over 300 tickets available for the Madrid game on one site alone:

Prices vary from between £200 and £1250 per ticket; even tickets on the Kop are available for £399.95.
What is unclear (from the blurb on the website) is if these tickets are from a legitimate club source, or if they have been sold on by [season]ticket holders.
Obviously, if these tickets are being supplied directly to the website by the club, then nothing can, or will be done about it.
