Premier League front-runners Leicester City have placed bans on a number of supporters who have tried to re-sell tickets to the clubs remaining home matches.
The club took action as a black market for tickets to their remaining home matches emerged, as the Foxes begin to close in on their historic first ever top-flight league title.
It s believed that one fan attempted to sell a pair of tickets online to the clubs final home game against Everton, for over R322, 000 (£ 15, 000).
City were alerted about ticket touting fans after other supporters contacted the club, who then issued a statement confirming that Leicester have placed a handful of supporters on “multi-season bans”.
Ian Bason, from The Foxes Trust told Sky News: “These are not real fans, no real Leicester City fan would even dream of profiteering from this amazing end to our season.”
“The club have absolutely done the right thing and we applaud them for it.
“We urge all real fans to remain vigilant.”
Leicester City are eight points clear of second place Tottenham Hotspur with four games left in the season.
