Tottenham Hotspur defied the odds this season to qualify for their first ever Champions League final, and now face a date against Liverpool on June 1.
Spurs had picked up just one point from their opening three group stage games, and looked all but out of the competition.
However, the club then defeated PSV, Inter Milan, and got a point away to Barcelona to qualify for the knockout stages.
After destroying Borussia Dortmund 4-0 over two legs, Spurs then scored three goals away from home against both Man City and Ajax to come from behind twice and book their place in the final.
Naturally, as soon as the final Lucas Moura goal went in, Tottenham fans were desperate to get their hands on a golden ticket.
Unfortunately, some fans have exploited the desires of others by purchasing tickets and selling them on via resale websites, something that is against club rules.
Tottenham warned fans that people would be banned for selling on tickets earlier this week, and they have followed through on their threat.
The club announced today that three Tottenham season ticket holders have been handed indefinite bans for attempting to sell CL final tickets online.
Let’s hope this is a lesson to anyone else trying to profit from their fellow football fans.
Spurs Web Opinion:
Good riddance to any so-called Spurs fan trying to sell on tickets and exploit other supporters. If you can’t make the final or don’t want to go, then don’t buy a ticket. If you can no longer attend, then sell it for face value via Tottenham. People looking to profit on the loyalty of football fans is a disgusting concept to me. The Champions League final should be about getting behind the team and enjoying a historic occasion, and should not be limited to the rich, Well done to Spurs for following through on their threat. Hopefully, these season ticket holders don’t get their money back for next season’s tickets.
The Club has this week issued indefinite bans to three Season Ticket Holders who have listed their @ChampionsLeague Final tickets for sale on a secondary ticketing platform.
We shall look to take the strongest possible action against anyone found to be engaging in such activity.
