Celtic to ban eBay ticket touts

CATEGORY: News

Celtic have said that eBay ticket touts face a lifetime ban from Parkhead if they are caught. Despite the stark message, and the threat that those buying resold tickets will not be admitted to the game, tickets for Tuesday’s match in Glasgow, and the return leg in Milan were up for sale today.

There is heightened security at all Italian football matches following the death of a police officer two weeks ago. The Celtic-Milan tickets are issued to named ticket-holders, which is supposed to be a security measure. However, with one eBay seller stating that the reason his tickets are for sale a month before the game is that it will give time for the names on them to be changed, it seems the football clubs will have to try a little harder if they want to keep these obviously committed fans away from the game.
