A report by Ernst & Young into the 2006 World Cup ticket scandal has
identified that FIFA vice-president Jack Warner sold World Cup tickets at up to
four times their face value.
According to The Independent, Warner now faces a fight to avoid
expulsion from football’s world governing body for his role in the scandal.
In their confidential report to FIFA, E&Y said: ‘We can confirm that
tickets included in orders under customer reference 201498572 [Mr Jack Warner]
were transferred or resold into the secondary market in breach of the 2006 Fifa
World Cup Germany ticketing general terms and conditions.’
The issue will now be dealt with at FIFA’s executive committee meeting in
Zurich on Friday.
