Spurs ban fans for trying to flog their Euro tickets


By Jonathan Veal

Tottenham have handed "indefinite" bans to three supporters who tried to sell their Champions League final tickets on a secondary ticketing platform.

Spurs have been allocated 16,613 tickets for the June 1 showpiece against Liverpool at Atletico Madrid's 64,000-seater Wanda Metropolitano stadium, meaning many will miss out.

Three season-ticket holders who were successful listed them on a resale site but have been caught out, with Spurs urging other fans not to "ruin one of the biggest occasions in the club's history".

A statement from Spurs read: "The club has this week issued indefinite bans to three season-ticket holders who have listed their Uefa Champions League final tickets for sale on a secondary ticketing platform.

"Once again, we wish to remind all our supporters that any ticket purchased is for the sole use of the individual that purchases it from the club. Transferring or selling tickets on unofficially breaches our terms and conditions and is against the law.

"We shall look to take the strongest possible action against anyone found to be engaging in such activity - including indefinite season-ticket bans.

"Please do not ruin one of the biggest occasions in the club's history by selling on your ticket and profiteering from fellow Spurs fans."

Liverpool have also pledged to fully investigate after identifying five supporters who have listed their final tickets for sale on secondary ticketing platforms.
