Pennsylvania-Based Broker Sues Colts Over Revocation Of Season Tickets
Pennsylvania-based ticket broker Yehuda Frager is suing the Colts "over their revocation of his season tickets -- a legal skirmish other brokers say appears to be fallout from efforts by the team to gain greater control over the secondary market and thin the ranks of resellers," according to Anthony Schoettle of the INDIANAPOLIS BUSINESS JOURNAL. Frager in the suit filed March 21 in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis claims that the Colts "declined to let him renew the same 94 tickets he bought" in '15 for the upcoming season. Frager said that he "paid more than $75,000 for the tickets." Sources said that the Colts are "taking a hard line with out-of-town ticket brokers and an amicable resolution is unlikely." Some local brokers said that they "heard Frager’s tickets were redistributed to another broker and that this might be the team’s first step in trying to more tightly control the secondary market by allowing fewer -- and possibly just one -- ticket broker to handle secondary sales" (IBJ.com, 4/2).
