    As I see it, this law is

    1) a cackhanded attempt to stop hooliganism by controlling which tickets are sold to which supporters, and

    2) to protect the monopoly/cartel the clubs and fa have over ticket prices

    they also know that without the illegal transfer market many stadia would be much less full.

    They have tended in the past to make alot of noise to scare the innocents off but not chase agencies particularly strongly.

    Now that there is money to be made in £5000 notes for every website with a football ticket related advert on it, I think we'll see more action.

    I wish someone would take them to court over their monopolistic practices. A site should be able to sell tickets just like they do.

    The prices paid for world cup tickets - to the same games - varied from £xx and £xxx up to several £xx,xxx's because
    a) the touts packaged them up nicely as corporate tickets and as being legal
    b) there is no transparency in the aftermarket because of the stupid laws so people can get away with all sorts of stupid prices as they don't know what's available and what they're being sold for elsewhere.

    IMO the law in this case is still as stupid as the last one.
