UK: CMA prepares legal action against Viagogo

 |  March 6, 2019

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has publicly warned secondary ticketing site Viagogo that it is still not compliant with terms of a court order served in November 2018.

The British competition authority is preparing legal action against secondary ticketing platform Viagogo, to find the company in contempt.

“Although some improvements have been made since we first demanded action to address areas of non-compliance, further checks have shown there are still issues of concern,” the competition authority announced in a statement.

CMA took Viagogo to the High Court in August, after the secondary ticketing website ignored multiple demands to comply with consumer law. Viagogo later agreed to comply with the competition watchdog’s demands, including providing face value tickets and ending speculative listings.
