5 live Investigates: ‘legalised ticket touting’ by Premier League clubs partnership with Viagogo

The BBC reports The Football Supporters’ Federation has said it will complain to the Premier League about deals signed by clubs allowing their fans to re-sell match tickets for a profit.

Ten clubs have formed partnerships with company Viagogo. These clubs defend the system as a safe and legal way in which season ticket holders are recompensed for matches they cannot attend.

The chairman of the Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF), Malcolm Clarke, says “We think it cannot be right that Viagogo are allowed to do something through the internet which, if a fan did outside the ground for exactly the same price, would be a criminal offence and which could lead to a football banning order.”

Viagogo says its service means that fans no longer have to take that risk, and describes its mission as being “to bring efficiency and transparency to what has traditionally been a murky market place”.
It is great that people are realising that Viagogo id not the best partnership to have.
