A few games in the winter I couldn't get to because of illness so used StubHub and it works fine. I can't afford to lose money but only want to cover my costs. Even with the StubHub add-on I don't think my ticket costs the buyer more than the matchday price ,say 40 ish in the MS. I think that's fair enough.
What I object to is tickets going on sale at 90  to 120 plus fees which are currently advertised for the Burnley game .It would be quite easy for Everton to clamp down on this. It wouldn't really affect StubHub ,they charge about 5 to both the buyer and seller which I think is reasonable.

If it was me I just would give it to a mate or a relative. Profiteering from your fellow blues does not sit right with me at all.

Would it be too much of a administrative nightmare for the club for them to reimburse you the ticket and put it back on sale themselves? 
.............that might work yes. But people are missing the point. Stubhub don't set the prices ,it's the seller . As I've said before the system works fine but EFC could easily stop people profiteering by insisting that the selling price ( incl.fees ) does not exceed the matchday price.

I bought a couple of tickets last year through them and on two instances when I went to pick them up they said I had to pay extra to upgrade the ticket when it clearly did not state what category the ticket was for.
................yes you have to be careful. It states the category adult/oap/child at the checkout stage but only in very small print.

One thing is for sure. If you're not a proper Evertonian and you see a season ticket as a way to make money? Well! This StubHub issue is open to massive abuse. It wouldn't surprise me if there were whole families of non-Evertonians selling them every week and having no intention of going the match anyway. It would be a good way for the red side to make the blue sides life more difficult for starters. And vice-versa. It must be going on all over the country, especially where tickets are hard to come by.
....................the club can easily identify these people and stop it. I don't know why they don't. Perhaps @Bally can bring it up at the fans forum ?

That might be tricky ? Assume you are in the auto cup scheme which means your account is charged with the ticket price for that game and your season ticket is than validated for entry, don't think you could then put it on stub hub, only thing you can do is cancel your auto cup option.
..................you're probably right. I don't bother with the auto-cup thingy ,you still get a 2 day window to claim your ST seat anyway.
