Following the news that a representative from Chelsea FC had contacted CFCTickets and asked them to cease offering their free ticket exchange service, the CST Board met with the organisers of CFCTickets last week to discuss potential ways forward.
It is clear from feedback received that many Chelsea supporters see the benefits of a not-for-profit “face value” ticket exchange, have significant reservations about Chelsea’s relationship with Viagogo and are hence frustrated by the club’s actions. Arsenal run their own not-for-profit ticket exchange and it would seem logical for other PL clubs to follow a similar model.
The CFCTickets organisers shared their experiences, frustrations and ideas with the CST Board and a fruitful and interesting discussion followed. As a result, CFCTickets and the CST Board are together evaluating possible ticket exchange options with a view to developing a workable, fully costed model which would we aim to propose to the club before the end of April for their consideration.
