«Therefore», it warns, «any ticket offered for sale by third parties on the internet (including social networks, online sales centers and secondary ticketing platforms) is considered a violation of those conditions. » and the UEFA «will take action, including cancellation of entries, when it identifies unauthorized advertisements.»

The European football association invites fans not to fall into the trap of people who offer tickets on the internet and who «often are not in possession of the ones they claim to have for sale, despite demanding exorbitant prices.»

In order to keep fans safe, ticket holders should be aware that checks will be carried out and action will be taken by local authorities in host cities against unauthorized ticket resale.
