The organizers of the World Cup are ready to take legal action against secondary ticket sites. Some tickets cost € 12,000.
Tickets for the match England vs. Australia at Lord’s are sold on Viagogo for 104 times their face value.
“We work closely with lawyers to identify secondary ticket sites that violate our terms and conditions,” said a World Cup spokesman.
“We take appropriate enforcement action against them if necessary. “The World Cup will take place from May 30 to July 14 in England and Wales.
It is not illegal in the UK to resell tickets for international cricket games, although tickets may not be offered for public sale on the Cricket World Cup’s own website.
One explanation from Viagogo was, “Viagogo does not set ticket prices, sellers set their own prices, which may be above or below their original face value, and when demand is high and tickets are limited, prices will rise.”
