Chelsea have launched a crackdown on ticket touts after taking legal action against 11 people, one of whom has been jailed for six months.

“This football club will not tolerate touting and will continue to identify offenders and take further legal action through the Courts to ensure that our club and the surrounding area are safe for our loyal supporters and visitors.”



The Blues are running an ongoing undercover operation which will continue throughout the 2019-20 season in an effort to tackle the problem in the Stamford Bridge area on and around matchdays.



“Ticket touting is known to have links to organised crime,” the club said in a statement this morning.

The club say they will “act to fully enforce” High Court injunctions which stop 11 known touts from trading tickets prior to Chelsea games as well as preventing them from loitering near to the stadium on matchdays.

“We remain committed to working alongside the Metropolitan Police and Local Authority to eradicate ticket touting from Stamford Bridge and will continue to operate a comprehensive and long-term operation to combat this problem,” the club added.

“The above action taken against touts operating around Stamford Bridge sends a strong message to others looking to engage in such criminal and anti-social behaviour.
