There were lots of rumours about this before the season tickets went on sale. Mostly from people who wanted to complain or scare others about not being able to resell for games they couldn't attend....

Always a positive to see more coverage from a UK viewpoint, but I think you've tried to cover too many subjects in one go. As a reader i thought the result seemed a little mixed up.

I understand the sentiment of your posts, but the suggestion that anyone can just walk in to the stadium when people are coming out is incorrect. There are always multiple stewards present at every...

In football (soccer) the ban on touting tickets is linked to public safety, and needing to know who is using that ticket. It doesn't relate to the financial aspect.

For concerts, NFL etc it seems...

This comparison is pretty ridiculous. A small evening event in a conference centre vs. a near 90,000 capacity stadium???

Checking IDs or creditcards at a major event with the majority of fans...

Being a heavily residential area Twickenham will be even more restrictive.

Actually makes me think that Wembley are more likely to get any evening games and Twickenham early ones.

I get the idea being given more control might help promote the games to teams, but they won't be able to push the kick off that far back.

Wembley like all venues has a curfew as part of its events...

It's the job of the NFL/NFLUK to put the league in the best position to generate more exposure/more revenue internationally. That includes undertaking proper due diligence on the viability...

The resale process for the Rugby World Cup was pretty good, and the organisers actively cancelled tickets that were being sold outside of the official system.

A house is an asset that belongs to the owner, they can sell it for what they want.

An event ticket is more like a rented house where the contract says you can't sublet.

Someone could take a...

In that case the ban is related to public safety and supposedly knowing who is in the stadium, it's nothing to do with pricing.

Tottenham and Everton both have formal partnerships with Stubhub for...

It shouldn't need the government to get involved as the technology to manage resale or ticket transfer is readily available for any event organiser who cares.

My only real criticism of the NFL with regard to the ticketing of the London games is the lack of an official resale system or marketplace.

For over 10 years season ticket holders of most Premier...

I think this is pretty much spot on.

When the games move to Tottenham then the capacity will reduce by another 10,000 compared to Twickenham.

If they want to increase the number of games then...

Or maybe making the reselling of tickets illegal isn't simple at all, would be difficult to enforce, and would actually be an unnecessary over reaction?

When I looked at the resale sites this...

Every major event whether sport or music only has a limited number of tickets, and people who miss out who will be unhappy.

If they announce in April as mentioned in the FAQs then you'll have around 6 months until the game. That's a completely reasonable timeframe.

You can't usually book a train ticket that far ahead,...

This is my view too, buying a 4 game season ticket if you only want to go to 1 game is unnecessary.

Wait for the single tickets to go on sale. If you don't get what you want then wait for the...

As others have said, I think 'tailgating' is one aspect of the game in the US that doesn't translate to the UK. The location of the stadium, driving culture etc aren't really a match.

Sorry, I can see how my question was ambiguous.

I meant for what reason(s) do you think the NFL would be considering using cards? What do you think the benefits are for them?

Out of interest why do you think that?
