Croatia v Serbia: Second Chance At Tickets As Scalpers Caught

Close to 100 fans will have a second chance of getting tickets for the sold out Croatia v Serbia World Cup qualifier which will be played at Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium after the Croatian football federation (HNS) caught scalpers selling tickets.

HNS held a press conference today where they explained that over 80 tickets will go on sale again after a bust involving scalpers reselling tickets on the internet was uncovered. When tickets went on public sale last Thursday for the match they sold out in just 5 hours, forcing thousands of disappointed fans to turn to the black market to try to get their hands on tickets.

Around 80 tickets the HNS say were advertised on the internet for sale illegally. Each ticket will be personalised with ID details, making it a difficult job for scalplers. HNS cancelled the “internet” tickets and will put them out for sale to the public again. They also apologised to the fans, explaining that 50,000 requests for just 15,000 tickets on the internet can not result in a situation where everyone can be happy.
