The KNVB has blocked more than five hundred tickets for the European Championship qualifying match between the Netherlands and Greece that will be played in Eindhoven on Thursday. The football association says it is certain that the cards have been traded through the black market. Another 200 other ‘suspicious’ tickets are being investigated.
The union has published a list of all places that are blocked on www.onsoranje.nl. People with a blocked ticket will not be allowed into the stadium, warns the KNVB. The tickets in question have been resold via 4Alltickets, Viagogo and MeGusta, among others. The KNVB refers people who have purchased the tickets to the organization where they purchased the tickets.
Both Viagogo and 4Alltickets still offer tickets for the match on Monday afternoon. 4Alltickets says it is not yet aware of the KNVB’s decision and is therefore unable to respond. Viagogo and MeGusta could not be reached for comment.
This is the position in the group of Orange for the European Championship qualification
