German court rules against black market ticket resales

FRANKFURT, Germany -- Fans who sell World Cup tickets on the black market will find their transactions vetoed by the German Soccer Federation (DFB) after a court ruling on Thursday.

This issue reached a Frankfurt regional court after a soccer fan bought two World Cup tickets online in September for 880 euros ($1,087), eight times their original price.

The DFB has vowed to fight black market ticket sales and refused at the time to transfer the tickets to the name of the new purchaser. This prompted the original ticketholder to file a lawsuit against the federation.

The court ruled in favour of the DFB, upholding its right to reject such transfers. It said the original ticketholder could have returned the tickets if he did not want them.

Resales are now conducted via an official website, something that was not available at the time of the disputed transaction discussed in Frankfurt.

Only the person named on each ticket will be allowed access to the stadiums when the month-long World Cup kicks off on June 9, for security reasons.
