Australia recovers thousands of scalped Ashes tickets
MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Cricket Australia (CA) has recovered thousands of scalped tickets for the third Ashes test against England in Perth, the governing body said on Wednesday.
The 2,890 tickets were “identified as linked to scalped tickets being sold at a premium” on online market place eBay, CA said in a statement.
The tickets for the Dec. 14-18 test at the WACA will go back on sale on Aug. 28.
The five-test Ashes series against current holders England is one of Australia’s most well-attended sporting events. The first test starts in Brisbane on Nov. 23.
