Which? warns over buying World Cup tickets online

From BBC - April 16, 2018

Football fans risk paying inflated prices for World Cup tickets that might not be valid if they use secondary ticketing sites, Which? has warned.

The consumer group found tickets for the England vs Tunisia match priced as high as 11,237.

FIFA has warned it is entitled to void any ticket purchased on an unauthorised ticketing website.

In March Which? found five ticketing websites including Stubhub and Ticombo that were selling World Cup tickets.

Stubhub said tickets had appeared on its UK website due to a "technical error" and there were no World Cup tickets currently available.

"StubHub fully complies with applicable laws. Therefore, we do not allow the resale of World Cup tickets on Stubhub.co.uk," a spokesperson said.

However, Ticombo said it was not breaking the law by trading tickets and neither were fans.
