PSL warns against ticket fraud and ticket resell

TelkomknockoutThe Premier Soccer League has announced that it will be adopting a zero tolerance on ticket fraud at next week’s Telkom Knockout (TKO) final at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

Mamelodi Sundowns will play Kaizer Chiefs on 16 December 2015 at 18h00 in a sold-out event in Durban.

Mato Madlala, the PSL Acting Chief Executive, said the League is working closely with the South African Police Service and private security to ensure that they curb criminal activities relating to fraudulent ticket sales at the TKO final.

“We would like to send a stern warning to those individuals who are planning to sell fraudulent tickets at the Telkom Knockout final to refrain from doing this. Our Safety and Security Department has been liaising with the police and other relevant role players to ensure that those involved in fraudulent activities are arrested and charged accordingly.

“We would like to also warn members of the public not to purchase tickets from the ‘black market’. The message is clear; if you do not have a valid ticket, please stay at home and watch the final on television or listen to it on radio.”

PSL Head of Safety and Security, Phillip Masimong said the focus will only be on those people who are trying to resell their tickets at inflated prices.

“In terms of SASREA 2 OF 2010, it is illegal to buy a match day ticket with the intention to sell it without the authorization of the organiser. We are monitoring the trend of people who bought more tickets than they can use. Law enforcement agencies are working around the clock to curb the illegal sale of tickets.”
