Premier League's anti-touting campaign

Barclays Premier League

 The Premier League has launched a new campaign warning football fans of the dangers of purchasing tickets from unofficial sources. The sale of fake and fraudulent tickets is a growing issue in English football with illegal activity happening every week online and at stadiums across the country.

The Premier League is working closely with all clubs, including Arsenal, to address an increasing threat that is affecting both domestic and international fans. To avoid disappointment, the Premier League is urging fans to buy match tickets directly from Premier League clubs and their official ticketing partners only. To find a list of unauthorised ticketing websites and learn about what to look out for when buying Barclays Premier League tickets, fans can click here. Premier League head of supporter services, Cathy Long, said: “The rise in touting is leaving more and more fans out of pocket. Many fans who buy from unofficial sources either pay far above face-value for second-hand tickets, or worse, purchase a fake or non-existent ticket. Clubs are working hard to address the problem, and hopefully raising awareness will mean fewer fans become victims of touts.” Chief executive of the Football Supporters Federation, Kevin Miles, said: “Fans from across the country and further afield are being duped by unauthorised ticketing websites that look genuine and even have the official Premier League logo. The ordering processes are professional even down to the purchase confirmation email that some fans receive.

"However, when fans arrive at the ground on the matchday, they are left embarrassed and upset when they discover that they'd in fact bought a fake ticket. We welcome action by the Premier League and clubs to make fans aware of this problem and direct them to official channels.”
