Mate of mine was haggling with a Spanish tout for three tickets. The tout gave him the tickets before he'd paid for them. A red who was standing behing my mate whispered "you've got the tickets, just do one" and so my mate legged it.

When he'd finally escaped and stopped to get his breath back the red who'd been behind him then demanded two of the tickets. He had to leg it all over again.

Tickets were in the German end.

It was a Spanish lad. Probably waited all game for an United goal so he could do his deed.

My ticket cost 250, touts were also openly selling fake tickets for about 30 quid and plenty were buying them just to chance their luck at the gates.

Copper took it and ripped it up and told him to do one. He was in tears, didn't get in :shakehead:

Got mine for 25 ish. Good to see in recent years UEFA socking it to the touts who were charging more than 10 times face value by increasing the face value by about ten times.

That was the face value of my Wembley ticket the other year. About 120 for Moscow too, iirc.

Online resellers were getting 3K a ticket for the 2011 final
