West Brom Fans Blocked From Selling Tickets To Man Utd Fans For Fergie's Last Game

West Brom have put an end to some of their fans attempts to cash in on their team's final game of the season against Man Utd, which is also Alex Ferguson's last game as Man Utd manager.


According to the Daily Mirror, some tickets were being sold for up to £2,500 but the club has now said that any tickets puts up for sale through the Viagogo website after the morning of Alex Ferguson's announcement will not being honoured.

A club spokesperson quoted on their website said:

Viagogo is the official ticket marketplace for the vast majority of Barclays Premier League clubs.

The club joined forces with viagogo at the start of the season to enable season ticket holders to sell their seat to another Albion fan when they cannot make a game. The club verifies all such sales before tickets are distributed.

We noticed on Wednesday that, within minutes of Manchester United announcing Sir Alex’s retirement, there was a huge spike in ticket orders being placed on viagogo.

With Manchester United’s help, we have identified that the vast majority of these orders were lodged by United season ticket holders/members.

Therefore, we will not be honouring any ticket orders lodged after 8am on Wednesday, May 8.

Despite the setback, I'm sure some enterprising West Brom fans will still manage to unload their to those Man Utd fans desperate to see a piece of history in the flesh.
