Touts selling Muhammad Ali’s memorial service ticket

Touts selling Muhammad Ali’s memorial service ticket

Touts are making money with Muhammad Ali’s death by selling free tickets for his memorial service for as much as $100 each.

Fans of the legendary boxer snapped up 15,000 tickets to the events later this week at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky, but thousands of others were left empty handed, Daily Mail reports.

The report says all of the tickets sold out within an hour after a huge crowd of people lined up outside the arena – but they started appearing online shortly afterwards.

One Craigslist had said: ‘I have 6 tickets available! Each ticket is $100 a piece. First come, first serve [sic]. ali 5

‘These are lower level seats at the KFC Yum! Center. CASH ONLY!! Must be able to pick up and/or meet. Serious inquiries only.’ali 4

Another post, which included a picture of five tickets to the memorial service, said: ‘Ali tickets for trade of things valuable. What you got.’ ali 3

There are dozens of posts on the buy-and-sell website from desperate Ali fans looking for tickets.

However, there are just as many posts made by fans of Ali warning people against buying or selling tickets to the free event.
