Invalid resale tickets lock out Open fans

Tennis fans have been turned away at the gates of the Australian Open after buying tickets from an unsanctioned online ticket resale site.

As weekend crowds pushed Melbourne Park’s first-week attendance past 500,000, News Corp reported that a quarter of tickets sold by Viagogo weren’t valid.

“We’ve tried to educate the public for a number of years not to buy from unauthorised resellers and use our official channels,” a Tennis Australia spokeswoman told AAP on Monday.
