    interesting piece. Are there any statutory provisions north of the border prohibiting touting. I have noted tickets are on sites such as EBay for this season's Champions League games involving Celtic? Or are club's left to police this type of action themselves?

    Hi Tony

    Thanks for your comment.

    There is no legislation in Scotland as far as I am aware in respect of ticket touting and therefore clubs police this themselves.

    There are ticket exchange sites which of course allow tickets to be sold legally when authorised by clubs.
