Lions Test Series Against Australia Sells Out In 15 Minutes, Tickets Flood Secondary Market
Published February 19, 2013
ARU ATTACKS SECONDARY MARKET: Also in Sydney, Guinness & Levy reported the ARU also sent out a reminder to fans to "not buy tickets from unauthorised ticketing sites, including eBay, Facebook and other online platforms." Tickets sold outside ARU Ticketing Terms and Conditions "may be cancelled with no refund." The ARU "will announce over the next months should tickets become available." Despite the ARU warning, ticket buyers "were offering them for sale again online for nearly four times the original cost" on Monday. Tickets were on eBay on Monday morning, with one bronze pair to the first Test in Brisbane posted for A$699 ($723) after originally selling for A$180 (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 2/19).
