The Premier League has recently launched an anti-touting campaign warning football fans of the dangers of purchasing tickets from unofficial sources.
The Premier League has now launched a video campaign with magician Ben Hanlin to raise awareness of this issue, in which Hanlin performs tricks on unsuspecting fans, Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday pundits and former Manchester United player, Quinton Fortune. Their reactions are hilarious!
