WORLD CUP TICKETS GOING FOR UP TO $2,300 DESPITE CRACKDOWN
Despite a crackdown on resellers by FIFA and Russian organizers, tickets for this year’s World Cup games are being scalped on the streets and online. According to Associated Press, scalpers are outside the main ticket office in Moscow, buying up tickets and reselling them at inflated prices. An AP reporter was reportedly approached six times in an hour for a standard of $150 above face value, but up to $700 for tickets. Online, in-demand tickets like those to Argentina’s opening game are going for as much as $2,300 even though “Russia has made World Cup scalping punishable by a fine for individual sellers of up to 25 times the ticket’s face value.” FIFA has tried to cancel some tickets and filed a lawsuit last week against reseller Viagogo.
