UK primary ticketing agency Ticketline had launched its fan-to-fan resale marketplace, Fanticks.

The firm claims that all tickets listed for gigs, festivals, comedy, theatre, and sports will be inspected and verified prior to publication.

The firm said it will check there is a price cap of no more than 10 per cent over the face value of the original ticket and that tickets listed are for a genuine event.

Ticketline has promoted that both e-tickets and physical tickets can be advertised, with delivery methods ranging from downloads to postage and exchange in person.

Fanticks has an in-built messaging system where arrangements can be made to exchange the tickets.

The new platform also has the option to alert a fan to tickets for specific sold-out events and venues.

James Lee, head of marketing at Ticketline, said: “We built Fanticks to provide our customers with an easy, fair and ethical resale platform for both buyers and sellers to sell unwanted tickets at the face value or less and make sold out events accessible and affordable to fans, and Fanticks delivers on this promise.”
