Tottenham Hotspur will take on Liverpool in the finals of the Champions League on the 1st of June at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, in what will be the biggest game in the club’s recent history.
Both teams have defied odds to get to the final after mounting terrific comebacks in the second legs of their respective finals.
Given all the criticism that Mauricio Pochettino and his team have come under in recent seasons for their failure to win any silverware, the game represents a massive opportunity for the club to prove people wrong by winning the biggest prize in European football.
However, UEFA have passed on less than 17,000 tickets to each set of fans for the game, according to the BBC.
This has caused a massive scramble for tickets among both sets of fans, with some tickets being sold for several times its original price.
Tottenham issued a statement warning fans that match tickets are not transferable and that anyone who was caught doing that could be subject to harsh punishments.
Now, the club have acted on their threat by issuing indefinite bans to three season ticket holders who listed their Champions League final tickets for sale on a secondary ticketing platform.
In response to the club’s tweet, Spurs fans unanimously agreed that the ban was a step in the right direction from the club.
Here’s how some fans reacted to the news:
Wow. Fair play for taking such a strong stance 👏

Good stuff. Now can you start doing this for regular away Premier League games too?

Spurs Web Opinion
Given that this is one of the biggest games in the recent history of both clubs, it is a disgrace that UEFA have allocated less than half of the tickets to Spurs and Liverpool fans.
However, it has been disappointing to see so many fans willing to sell their tickets on for a considerable profit, thus ripping off their fellow Spurs fans in the process. It is about time that the club punished banned those engaging in this.
