Motion text

That this House notes that tickets for the World Cup are being resold for up to £1000 at an average of 327 per cent. more than their face value; recognises that touted tickets for football matches can result in a dangerous mix of opposing fans; congratulates the Football Association (FA) and the German authorities on their robust plans to help prevent crowd violence; regrets that only 8 per cent. of tickets for each match have been allocated by the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to the fans of each competing side; believes that such a low ticket allocation encourages touting; welcomes the FA's decision to cut its own allocation to their football family in half to the benefit of the fans; and calls on FIFA to act now to ensure that a far higher proportion of tickets are allocated to fans in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
