SFL To Deal Swiftly With Elgin City Over Rangers Ticket Fiasco
Published November 27, 2012
MAKING AN EXAMPLE: In Glasgow, Gavin Berry reported Elgin had raised its ticket prices by 50% for Sunday’s "ill-fated clash" at Borough Briggs, and now Queen’s Park is "inflating the fees" for its match with Rangers next month. The most expensive adult ticket is usually £12 ($19), so Rangers fans "were angry" to see tickets selling for £15 ($24) and £20 ($32). Longmuir said: "I'll be taking steps to remind clubs of recommended minimum prices that we have always applied in Division Three. I will make that reminder as forceful as I can. I agree it’s profiteering." Longmuir refused to discuss the severity of the sanctions available, but believes that whatever punishment is delivered, the "fallout from this shambles has already made an example of Elgin" (DAILY RECORD, 11/26).
