Bundesliga Club Schalke 04 Considers Lawsuit In Dispute With Viagogo
Bundesliga side Schalke 04 "is considering filing a lawsuit for damages against online ticket marketplace viagogo," according to SPIEGEL ONLINE. The "reason is lost marketing revenue." In a statement the club said that "it will not comment any further on the issue." The lawsuit "is expected to be filed in the coming days." On July 9, Schalke "terminated its deal with viagogo, which took effect on July 1 because the ticket marketplace has allegedly, from the beginning, breached contract regulations despite several requests" by the club (SPIEGEL ONLINE, 8/19).
