Spectators planning to attend The 2014 Ryder Cup are being urged to check the source of their ticket after a small number of fake tickets were uncovered via the event’s online Ticket Check service.
The free-to-use Ticket Check website – www.ticketcheck.rydercupeurope.com – enables customers with General Admission tickets or ticket inclusive Travel and Hospitality packages to enter the details of the company their tickets were purchased from. As all Ryder Cup tickets are strictly non-transferable and can be traced back to the original purchaser, the website confirms the validity of genuine tickets purchased from an official source.
Customers with tickets that have been purchased from an unauthorised seller are warned that their tickets are not valid, resulting in them being turned away at the security check point.
Edward Kitson, Match Director, said: “Our first priority is to protect members of the public and in particular the security of those on site. Those who arrive at the event with an invalid ticket will be refused entry. To avoid any disappointment, we’d strongly urge all ticket-holders to use the Ticket Check service before arrival.
