In a statement, ASAE said that the arrests related to the sale of two tickets, one with a face value of 40 euros and another of 65 euros, for which values ​​of 250 euros and 200 euros were being requested, with profit margins of up to 500%.

The tickets, which were being sold online, were for the Champions League game between Benfica and Paris Saint-Germain, at Estádio da Luz, in Lisbon.

ASAE warns consumers “that they should avoid purchasing tickets above their official value, since this sale constitutes a crime of speculation or irregular sale of tickets, punishable by imprisonment for up to three years”.
