Thousands of fake football tickets on sale for Gibraltar matches

HUNDREDS of fake tickets look to have been snapped up by the Rock’s eager football fans.

The Gibraltar FA has urged the Rock’s passionate supporters to be wary of scammers selling fake match tickets for the team’s upcoming European qualifiers.

According to the head of security at Gibraltar’s FA, Louis Wink, thousands of unofficial tickets have been put up for sale on a non-authorised website for matches against Scotland, Germany, Ireland and Georgia.

The offending website is selling tickets for Gibraltar’s next match against Scotland at Hampden Park for a whopping €119.

According to Wink, the website allocates specific seats for the buyer which at the time would be ‘impossible’.

“I do not see how they can guarantee a seat for an individual if the tickets are not even printed yet,” he said.

A statement on the Gibraltar FA’s website added that there are currently ‘no tickets on sale for any of the remaining home European qualifiers’ and that tickets for away matches will go on sale once their allocations have been received from the respective home association.

  1. Think the title should not say IN GIBRALTAR but FOR GIBRALTAR MATCHES as the website is not based in Gibraltar.
    Why anyone would buy tickets anyway from these people is beyond me. The games will not be sold out anyway.
