Trent Bridge Takes Action
On Ashes Ticket Touts

Featured News | 23rd October 2012

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club Chief Executive Lisa Pursehouse has vowed to cancel any identifiable Ashes tickets found for sale online at more than face value.

Trent Bridge has already cancelled several tickets found for sale on auction websites with perpetrators refunded and banned from buying tickets for future matches.

“It is up to us to enforce these regulations and we have already cancelled tickets and blacklisted purchasers who we have found to be selling tickets for profit.”

“Selling cricket tickets for profit does not contravene any laws but it does contravene our ground regulations,” said Lisa.

“It is up to us to enforce these regulations and we have already cancelled tickets and blacklisted purchasers who we have found to be selling tickets for profit.”

The first four days of the Trent Bridge Investec Ashes Test sold out within hours of going on general sale on last Monday. A limited number of tickets remain on sale for the fifth and final day of the Test.

“We want this match to be enjoyed by genuine cricket fans and if anyone has a genuine reason for being unable to use their tickets then they should get in contact with us,” said Lisa.

“We will remain vigilant and continue to take action where we see tickets being sold for profit.”

Gordon Hollins, ECB Managing Director for the Professional Game, added his voice to those supporting the action taken by Trent Bridge.

“Our view is that selling tickets for profit is unfair on ordinary fans and prevents the game being accessible to all sections of the community," said Gordon.

"ECB is committed to eradicating ticket touting wherever possible and all international venues who take action against touts will have our full and wholehearted support.”
