‘Disabled’ ticket fraud

Jun 2014

FIFA is investigating incidents of possible fraud involving sale of a concession batch of tickets for 2014 World Cup matches intended for pensioners, students, disabled and obese people after pictures emerge of supposedly disabled fans jumping out of wheelchairs to celebrate goals. Ticket touts are caught offering the concession passes for sale on Facebook and at the grounds, with disabled concession tickets turning extra profit as they are valid for two people to allow the disabled person to bring a carer. Police are investigating whether 22 pictures on CCTV show supposedly disabled fans standing up at the 66,000-seat Sao Paulo Arena while pictures and video appear to show fans standing up and walking in other venues.
