Tickets to only be sold at FACE VALUE on 2nd hand websites

This petition had 120 supporters

As I great lover of live music, along with the ridiculous prices I've had to pay in the past to see some of my favourite bands perform, I am demanding that the government review the way sell-on ticket websites such as Viagogo, Get Me In, StubHub etc work.

I make a strong suggestion that tickets for all shows and sports matches can only be sold at FACE VALUE. 

This would stop the fan from being ripped off, paying sometimes five or even ten times more to enjoy themselves at the benefit of people purely buying tickets to profit from.

This would still enable those genuine sellers who cannot make the booked event to sell their ticket on to reclaim their money, rather than losing it. 

I suggest that the website may still add an additional processing/admin fee of no more than £5.

Please sign as at some point this has either already affected or will most likely affect all of us in the future.

Many Thanks and Happy petitioning!
