A person sentenced to six months in prison.
Chelsea sued eleven "ticket sharks" who frequented Stamford Bridge on match days. One of them has already been sentenced to six months in prison. This confirms the club in a press release.
People must have bought club tickets and sold them at the black stock exchange at prices much higher than what is legal.
In court, it was decided that these people would not buy more tickets for Chelsea matches and could no longer stay near the stadium on matchdays.
In addition to imprisoning one of the people, they were fined a total of NOK 1.9 million. The ticket scams were committed as part of an undercover operation that will continue throughout the coming season.
The club hopes that the punishment that has been inflicted prevents others from embarking on similar scams in the future.
