Touting is illegal if you are asking over face value.

Why have you jumped to that conclusion? I was only trying to help!

I haven’t jumped to anything. Just pointing out that if your touting it is illegal. If your selling for a loss it is not.

I'm not selling anything. I was merely passing on information from a friend who organises football match coach trips from a Nerja bar in case anyone on this forum was interested.
He happened to have some spare tickets due to others being unable to go. The price was the ticket price plus a small amount for the coach from Nerja.
This would have been obvious to someone clicking on the link. There was no need to issue " holier than thou" ticket tout warnings.

So just to be clear you are selling the tickets for more than face value? That is touting!!!!!!! The bus and cheese sandwich that you throw in has nothing to do with it unless you are a registered tour operator.

And I am also surprised Cid hasn’t deleted your link.

Those tickets were 90e for the Barca game so it seems a nailed on bargain with a hassle free lift thrown in.

They are fetching far more money than that from bona fide and legal outlets to be fair to the guy.

Thank you Devils Advocate - a bit of common sense at last.
For the last time Mr CID. I'm not selling anything.

I am happy with your post, as you rightly say, you aren't selling anything.

Is touting illegal? Just because it is in the UK, doesn't make it so here.

On the bright side Barcelona lost again.

Yes ticket touting is Illegal in Spain, since 1982 but only covers "touting" on the street, it's never been updated hence doesn't make any provision to online ticket touting.
"Ticket touting in person is illegal in Spain, but there is no legislation specifically targeted at online resale"

Spare a thought for me..

I am a "Gooners" season ticket holder.

Probably could not give it away at present !

Always a strange one to me......

From the "Gooners" underground station to the actual ground, a distance of a few hundred yards, you run the gauntlet of several "gentlemen" selling ( or sometimes buying ) tickets for the match. I am not sure they are selling them at "face value"...

I have never seen a policeman anywhere near them.

These days it's not always so straight-forward to buy tickets for matches in England especially if you are like me and can only go from time to time. I have been to A/senal and Southampton this year.

Basically you have to register. With A-senal there is a membership fee, which I pay for my son because he supports them. We just wait until the tickets become available to his membership level and then buy them.

I have been to other grounds over the last few years and you just register online and buy when they become available. I went to Watford last season and bought a ticket from the ticket office on match day .

In Spain, It is much easier to watch a match unless one of the big boys come to town because the grounds are never usually even close to full. Even going to see Barcelona and Real Madrid at their home grounds is relatively easy as long as you don't want to see something like El Classico.

I don't know if other clubs do this but at Athletic Bilbao season ticket holders have to pay for one match per season which is usually one from either Barcelona or Real Madrid. Many don't take up the option as a protest so in fact more tickets become available albeit, they are quite expensive so it's always worth trying through official channels first.

Even as a season ticket holder, I will struggle to get a Cup Final Ticket.

A/senal will get 20,000 tickets, something like 44,000 season ticket holders, so it is basically a lottery.
