Tickets For Spurs' First Premier League Match At New Stadium Being Resold For Up To £1,000
Tottenham Hotspur fans could miss out on the opportunity to see their side play their first Premier League match at the new stadium after tickets are being resold for a much higher price.
Tickets for the match against Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium went on sale at 10 a.m., but many fans were left waiting and waiting for over an hour to purchase a ticket.
While Spurs supporters have a shot at snagging a ticket tomorrow, there won't be much room for error when it comes to snapping one up.
After all, the 62,062-seat stadium has 42,000 tickets allocated to season ticket holders, so it's hardly surprising that many fans are frustrated that tickets are being sold on.
StubHub, for example, has two tickets being listed for over £1,000 collectively, while other social media users have expressed their disgust at the tickets being resold.
Following on from the news regarding tickets, the Premier League side released a statement slamming any websites selling them on.
"All the websites below are unauthorised sellers and SHOULD NOT BE USED to purchase any ticket to Tottenham Hotspur matches," reads the statement.
"Supporters will pay well above the original price for the tickets and you could be refused entry to the stadium or ejected.
"Many tickets sold by unauthorised agencies or by touts have been obtained unofficially and are therefore invalid.
"Tickets for all Tottenham Hotspur matches should only be purchased from official sellers.
"Please note that tickets purchased from unofficial website/agencies, social media sites, or from touts will be invalid and you are likely to be refused entry or ejected from the stadium.
"The unauthorised sale of match tickets for any monetary value is a criminal offence under UK law and is a matter we take very seriously."
In other news, one Spurs fan has already discovered the worst seat at the stadium, which is definitely one to avoid for any supporter going to see the London side's clash with Crystal Palace.
Should the Premier League clamp down on the reselling of tickets next season?
