    Well said, this would be the best way. Basically there will be fans listing tickets every week and will go unless they sell at many times the asking. Its not in the spirit of the Albion and needs to be stopped

    There could be ID checking but this could be OTT as many lend tickets to family/friends, use some elses fans number etc and really its pretty innocent
    If you were checked and had given the ticket to a family member or close friend I think it would be easy to demonstrate. I'd hope the club would use their discretion and common sense in such cases. This is very different to scalping and I hope everyone caught doing this gets the full force of Barber.

      A plastic scouser down our local offered my lad a hundred quid for his ST for the Liverpool game the other night. He said no.

      "How much then ?"
      "I'm not selling it"

      So easy to solve. With all the scares about letting a friend or family member use your ticket if you can't go the club could sort this easily.

      A) buy overpriced ticket
      B) cancel the season ticket of the person who was profiteering
      C) resell said season ticket to next on the waiting list and recoup the cost of the inflated price they paid.

      Do this for a game or two and the message will soon get out that you can't get away with it and it will stop.
      Don't take offence. I'm normally ruder than this.

      I'm not surprised though on his wages

      I guess if a corporate ticket just says 'corporate' then they'll let the holder through. 'Normal' tickets, and season tickets, I believe have names printed on them.

      I wasn't there so can't confirm but I heard they were checking IDs at some away games towards the end of last season - QPR was one I think?
      Didn't see any checks at any games last year.

      Possible that this was a wind-up, I admit...

      Presumably people could be picking them up on the ticket exchange and then putting them up for onward sale too ?

      Would very simple to forward on the pdf print at home ticket to the purchaser. Club won't know it's happened unless the resale site has the specific seat number made public.
