Tottenham Hotspur have threatened to suspend the season tickets of anyone trying to profit from the club’s move to their new stadium.
Tickets for the opening game against Crystal Palace on April 3 have already been advertised for as much as £1,200 for a pair on social media. Spurs are aware of some people trying to sell-on their tickets for the first game at a huge profit and have warned of severe action.
A club spokesperson said: “Season-ticket holders or anyone else selling their tickets on social-media platforms and other unofficial websites are in breach of the club’s terms and conditions, therefore leaving themselves liable to having their accounts suspended.
“The only official way to transfer tickets is via Ticket Exchange or Ticket Share which become operational on the date tickets go on sale.”
Some fans described efforts to profit from the first game as “shocking” and “disgraceful”.
Tottenham allow fans to use Ticket Exchange to sell a ticket at face value for any individual game which they cannot attend. The Ticket Share service is for season-ticket holders to share their tickets with a nominated friend or family member for any particular match.
