Fans Being Told Not to Sell Their Tickets for Game in London

Dolphins fans are being asked not to try and resell their tickets for the teams “home” game in London in October against the New York Giants. Thursday’s South Florida Sun-Sentinal reports that a policy has been put in place to prevent season ticket holders from selling the tickets on websites. The policy states if you are a season ticket holder and want tickets to the game, you must pick them up in person, in London, with a photo ID. We don’t want fans reselling these tickets,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told the paper. “We had to create a system that would accommodate Dolphins season-ticket holders and U.K. and European fans. Without that there’s the potential for fans to have to pay extraordinary prices for these tickets from people in South Florida, who may be selling them.”

Ticket prices start at $92 for the game, which is to be played at Wembly Stadium. The tickets are a hot item in the U.K., where the first 40,000 tickets to the game were snapped up in 90 minutes. Some season ticket holders like Mike Dean of South Florida think its bogus that fans don’t have a choice to buy tickets to the game. “It’s bad enough they’re taking a home game away from us – now you’ve got to pick them up in person?” Dean said. “Let’s say I got ill when it came time to go. What if I want to give my tickets to you? I can’t give them to you. I have to go on my deathbed?”
