Tottenham has handed “indefinite” bans to three supporters who tried to sell their Champions League final tickets on a secondary ticketing platform.
Three season-ticket holders who were successful listed then decide to re-sell their own tickets but have been caught, 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.
“Additionally, if we are made aware of tickets being sold on by supporters after collection we will cancel the original match tickets with UEFA and the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid, meaning these tickets will no longer be valid for entry to the stadium.
“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.
“As always, we also strongly advise fans against purchasing tickets from unofficial sources. These tickets could be invalid or counterfeit.”
Spirit of Shankly and Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust said their ticket allocations will mean many fans miss out on attending the match.
While the Premier League clubs received 33,286 tickets, 4,000 were sold to fans worldwide and the rest have gone to the local organising committee, UEFA, National associations, commercial partners, broadcasters and to corporate hospitality packages.
