Ticket blocking in Europe[edit]

The KNVB (Dutch Football Association) have [14] recently blocked tickets in the secondary market for a match between Scotland and Holland. The blocking affected secondary ticket companies both in the Netherlands and Scotland.

And it was not only secondary ticket industry players that were affected in the KNVB debacle... one corporate hospitality company in the Netherlands offering full package corporate events which included tickets to the Scotland-Netherlands match also got caught in the maelstrom and found themselves with a slew of very unhappy clients with booked hotels, catered food and no tickets to the event because they were blocked. They got caught in the storm intended to ‘eradicate’ what the Dutch media calls, the ‘Black Market’.

Action was taken to the courts by Worldticketshop to unblock the tickets just prior to the event, but the KNVB won the case, based on the KNVB terms and conditions (does not allow commercial reselling of the tickets) – which were declared valid because the KNVB did a media campaign prior and announced the blockage. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Footix2 (talkcontribs) 14:34, 13 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
