Tottenham Hotspur fans don’t have long to wait to finally experience the new 62,000 seat stadium, with the opening date officially set as April 3.
Spurs will take on Crystal Palace at home for the historic event, however, the club have already been forced to warn some fans ahead of the Premier League fixture.
As you can imagine, anyone who is faintly interested in Spurs wants a ticket to the first ever game in the new ground, and it appears some are willing to extort this experience.
Tickets have been seen advertised on social media for as much as £1,200 for a pair ahead of the match.
Tottenham have a partnership with Ticket Exchange for the sale of all match day tickets, to ensure they are sold at face value.
Not only does this ensure they are sold properly, but it prevents fake fans from ripping off their fellow supports.
Spurs have threatened to suspend the accounts of anyone seen selling via social media.
A club spokesperson said (Telegraph): “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.”
