The Guardia Civil has arrested this Friday to ten people in an operation in Barcelona against companies that falsify tickets for matches of Barca from fertilisers officers to enter the Camp Nou. The research, with the support of the anti-Corruption Office and ordered by the Court of Instruction number 1, began after the discovery in may of 2018 of more than 2,800 entries falsified to the 'classic' League against Real Madrid last season.
Since then, investigators have managed to identify at least eight companies specialized in the sale of tickets for shows that were taking part in the deception of the club. As confirmed by the Ministry of the Interior, doubled the code 'QR' of fertilisers officers to falsify tickets and resell them at higher price. In total we have carried out nine raids on businesses and private homes in an operation that continues to open and during which it is anticipated that there may be more arrests.
With the support of FC Barcelona, the Guardia Civil is trying to figure out now if the surveyed firms were all part of the same network. According to investigation sources, the system devised has made the club leave to enter more than a million euros.
the second phase is to try to identify if the members of the club gave their subscriptions knowing that it was going to falsify entries or, if well, the companies attracted by payments for 'rent' their passes without the knowledge of the club. The entity, the main affected by the illegal, remains an open war against the resale of tickets. The passes are typically overcome with easily 120 euros on average and reach the four figures on the resale in the case of matches of the final phase of the Champions League or for the 'classic'. The operation has been carried out on the eve of the league match against real madrid, this Sunday.
In the summer the club has already sanctioned 2.822 partners for doing business with their subscriptions at the Camp Nou and expelled them from the entity, 33 of them by reiteration. The club also announced its collaboration with the Civil Guard and the filing of a complaint against entities and individuals who benefit from the seats without going through the box of the club.
