Poland watchdog sues UEFA over Euro 2012 tickets

  •  

WARSAW, Poland (AP) -A Polish office which protects customer rights says it has filed a lawsuit against UEFA over rules concerning tickets for the European Championship this summer.

Malgorzata Cieloch, a spokeswoman for the UOKiK office, said on Friday the suit was filed in August with a special consumer rights court in Warsaw.

UOKiK has questioned 25 UEFA rules, including those that say UEFA takes no responsibility for late delivery of tickets, issues no duplicates for lost tickets, and can unilaterally change an already-assigned seat. The tournament kicks off on June 8 in Warsaw, and will also be played in Ukraine.

The court is to take up the case on June 22, according to Judge Andrzej Turlinski.

A verdict in the office's favor would allow fans to seek damages in cases named in the suit.
