Fifa alert over Russia tickets
Tickets for the football World Cup have been illicitly advertised for almost 40 times face value on secondary seller websites, according to a leading consumer rights group.
Fans heading to Russia risk being denied entry to matches if they show up with passes bought through a third party, Fifa has warned, saying it retains exclusive selling rights.
Tickets were on sale in March for as much as £5,618 each across five separate sites including StubHub and Ticombo, according to Which?.
A pair of premium category one tickets for the England v Tunisia match on June 18 were found listed for between £480 and £11,237 despite being advertised for £296 on Fifa’s website, Which? said.
