Victorian Sports Minister has one message for ticket scalpers
The message from Victorian Sports Minister John Eren is clear, it’s not worth it.
Laws were passed in Victorian Parliament this week which ensure selling tickets above 10 per cent of their face value to certain major events is now illegal.
Events such as AFL Finals and other high-demand cultural events are now classified under the “declared event status”.
“If you’re a scalper in Victoria, you will get caught and you will pay a hefty fine,” Eren told Afternoons.
“The authorised ticket organisers will work in conjunction police so we’ll be out there vigilantly to try and catch these people that do the wrong thing.”
