GENEVA (CelebrityAccess) FIFA has filed a criminal complaint in Switzerland against Viagogo regarding unauthorized World Cup ticket sales.
FIFA said it has joined other parties filing criminal complaint against “opaque and deceptive business conduct” by Viagogo in the secondary market. The legal action, filed yesterday, was “based on a breach of the law on unfair competition against Viagogo AG with the public prosecutor’s office in Geneva,” the soccer organization said in a statement, according to the Associated Press.
Fans who buy through unofficial platforms like Viagogo for World Cup games in Russia face being denied entrance into the venues.
Viagogo was still selling World Cup tickets on its website Tuesday.
