Bundesliga Plans To Launch Own Secondary Ticket Exchange To Fight Black Market

The Bundesliga "wants to put a stop to black market ticket sales," according to Stefan Merx of HANDELSBLATT. The German Football League (DFL) "will put together a working group at the end of the month to establish rules for the resale of tickets on the secondary market." DFL Managing Dir Andreas Rettig said, "We've started a survey of all 36 professional clubs. According to the survey, the majority thinks it is necessary to find a central secondary market solution. If there is a convincing central ticket exchange, it would be an important step in the fight against the black market." Rettig said that working group "is expected to present joint rules for the resale of tickets to the league board by the summer." The working group includes Schalke Marking Dir Alexander Jobst and Borussia Dortmund Marketing Dir Carsten Cramer, among others. It is expected that the league "will only tolerate the resale of tickets for face value" (HANDELSBLATT, 1/26).
