The e-Bay Ticket Debacle
FIFA messes up again. Why they can't figure out how to didtribute tickets is beyond me.
Now they're up in arms about e-Bay tickets.
Ticketing arrangements for this summer's World Cup were in chaos yesterday after a court ruled that a fan who bought tickets on eBay was entitled to use them, even though his name was not printed on the ticket face.
The tournament's organisers had insisted that the German Björn Kracht had acquired the tickets unfairly, but a Frankfurt court decided against them. Although the court said its ruling applied only in his case, the judgment opens the way for thousands of England fans to try to acquire tickets on the black market.
In my opinion, FIFA's greediness is overshadowed only by its incompetence.
History repeats itself, again and again and again.
