We are committed to cracking down on unacceptable behaviour in the ticketing market and improving sports fans’ chances of buying tickets at a reasonable price.

We have strengthened legislation in this area, and support the work of the enforcement agencies in going after those who seek to flout the law.

Through the Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill we are also seeking to ban unauthorised touting of tickets for the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
