FIFA warns fans about re-sold World Cup tickets
FIFA said its website is the ‘only legitimate source’ for tickets
FIFA has told fans buying World Cup tickets from unauthorized sellers that they could be barred from stadiums.
FIFA says it “cancels tickets discovered as illegally sold or re-sold with the bearers risking not being permitted entry.”
FIFA marketing director Thierry Weil says some fans have already been affected, leaving official collection points “disappointed as they failed to collect their tickets.”
FIFA says its website is the “only legitimate source” for tickets.
The Stubhub website is offering tickets from $2,300 for the opening match in Sao Paulo. Viagogo’s cheapest offer was for $1,149.
FIFA says it is a crime in Brazil “to sell or supply a ticket for more than the face price.”
