Are you an authorised seller of FA & FIFA tickets?
Please read this taken from FIFA's website
According to the legal framework in Brazil, the resale of sporting event tickets, at a price superior to the one indicated on the ticket, is prohibited by article 41-F of Law No. 10,671/2003 (the “Fan Statute”). Article 41-G of the Fan Statute considers it a crime to supply, deviate or facilitate the distribution of tickets for sale at a price superior to the one indicated on the ticket. In addition, according to article 16 of the FIFA World Cup™ General Law”, anyone who sells, offers, exposes for sale, negotiates, deviates or transfers tickets to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ or uses tickets to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ for advertising, sales or promotional purposes, as competition or sweepstakes prizes or uses the ticket availability for advertisement for these purposes is subject to civil sanctions and criminal penalties.....

Hi Shazza. Thank you for your response. We always appreciate good feedback.

We believe it is worth noting that many of the tickets listed on our site are not owned by Best Tickets. Best Tickets is simply a marketplace to facilitate the sale of tickets, many of which belong to third parties/customers.

Some prime examples of this are the World Cup and FA tickets you brought to our attention in your post. Though they may be listed on our site, they do not belong to Best Tickets, and Best Tickets does not control the pricing of the tickets. If these tickets were being sold on eBay, whether the seller asked for $1 per ticket, or $1,000,000 a ticket, would that cause you to classify eBay as a scam site? You will find similar practices among many reputable sites across the web.

At the end of the day, Best Tickets is dedicated to the well-being of our customers. This is why we back all of the tickets sold on our site with a 100% guarantee. Also, in case you did not notice the link in our initial post, Best Tickets has earned an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau; a distinction reserved for only the most well-trusted and high-quality businesses in existence. You can view the page using the link below:

All of that being said, Best Tickets greatly appreciates your feedback. We now understand that there are some highly-specific rules and regulations regarding these specific events and will do our best to address the situation in an appropriate and timely manner. Best Tickets values your support, as well as your interest in improving our site.

Sincerely,

The Best Tickets Support Team

Hi
I'm sorry but it is irrelevant who the tickets belong to, you are providing a platform for the sales & profitting from them - please read the links I provided. These are not rules, they are laws & as it's your business you should be aware of this.

EBay do not allow the sale of unused football tickets & this is also irrelevant, as is my opinion of eBay - we're only discussing your site here.

You failed to answer the question (the correct answer was - no, your site is not authorized to sell them by FIFA or the FA, which makes your site fraudulent!).
