Tottenham Hotspur have issued indefinite bans to three season ticket holders who listed their tickets for the Champions League final on a resale website.
Spurs and Liverpool will go head-to-head in Madrid on June 1, with each team receiving 17,000 tickets at Atletico Madrid’s 63,500-capacity Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
In a statement on their website, the north London club reminded supporters that it is illegal for an unauthorised person to sell on tickets.
“We shall look to take the strongest possible action against anyone found to be engaging in such activity - including indefinite season ticket bans,” the statement read.
Spurs asked fans not to “ruin one of the biggest occasions in the club's history by selling on your ticket and profiteering from fellow Spurs fans.”

The club also warned they would cancel match tickets if they were found to have been sold on by supporters after collection.
"Once again, we wish to remind all our supporters that any ticket purchased is for the sole use of the individual that purchases it from the club," the statement continued.
According to BBC Merseyside, Liverpool are set to take similar action after identifying five supporters who tried to sell tickets on.

“As always, we also strongly advise fans against purchasing tickets from unofficial sources. These tickets could be invalid or counterfeit,” they told supporters.News Now - Sport News
