Tottenham Hotspur have released a statement this afternoon to confirm they have given three season ticket holders indefinite bans after their Champions League final tickets were found to be listed on a ticket resale website.
The club have taken the action after Champions League final tickets have reportidly been exchanging hands for upwards of £3,500, with both Tottenham and Liverpool fans furious at the low allocation for both sides in Madrid.
Spurs have also said they will cancel any tickets that are found to have been purchased after collection, meaning they will not work when the secondary owner tries to get into the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.
“The Club has this week issued indefinite bans to three Season Ticket Holders who have listed their UEFA Champions League Final tickets for sale on a secondary ticketing platform.
Once again, we wish to remind all our supporters that any ticket purchased is for the sole use of the individual that purchases it from the Club. Transferring or selling tickets on unofficially breaches our terms and conditions and is against the law.
We shall look to take the strongest possible action against anyone found to be engaging in such activity – including indefinite Season Ticket bans.
Additionally – if we are made aware of tickets being sold on by supporters after collection we will cancel the original match tickets with UEFA and the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, meaning these tickets will no longer be valid for entry to the stadium.
Please do not ruin one of the biggest occasions in the Club’s history by selling on your ticket and profiteering from fellow Spurs fans.
As always, we also strongly advise fans against purchasing tickets from unofficial sources. These tickets could be invalid or counterfeit.
Visit Ask Spurs for full information on unofficial sellers and unauthorised tickets, including a list of websites that should not be used to purchase tickets.
If you wish to contact the Club concerning this matter then please email email@example.com.”
Now do the same to members who did the same thing for the Ajax semi. Sold out in seconds, and available on non-official channels within minutes. pic.twitter.com/BLD6YRMRm9

Who the f*** would sell their CL FINAL ticket?! Don’t deserve it. I wouldn’t sell a ticket for a million and I actually MEAN that! I’ve waited 40 years for THFC to do this and they play on my birthday.
