No money back, no guarantee

No primary category set

eBay sellers of Cricket World Cup ticket holders will get a double whammy from organisers, as not only have the tickets been cancelled, but no money will be refunded. More than 200 tickets have been cancelled after resale, for contravening the terms of the original sale. A spokesman for the ICC said:

“CWC has worked very diligently to track down the persons who have been undermining the tournament’s integrity by engaging in this black-market activity. We have had good success and have cancelled the relevant tickets. However, CWC believes an even stronger message must be sent regarding indulgence in such practices – both to persons selling and buying these tickets. Offenders will have to face the consequences of their actions – no tickets and no refunds either.”

My view, as I’ve said many times, is that if you can sell something you own at a profit, then you should be allowed to do so. However, more and more venues are taking this kind of line, and eBay transactions are so much more visible and traceable than traditional outside the venue touting. So I’d strongly advise anyone thinking of selling a ticket to check and double check the associated terms and conditions before doing so.
