See Tickets’ ethical resale platform Fan-to-Fan celebrates its first year this month, having enabled over 15,000 fans to participate in ethical ticketing to date.
Fan-to-Fan only allows tickets to be resold at the price the customer paid or less and was launched by See as a customer-first initiative, which clearly also shows its stance on the secondary market.
See Tickets’ CEO Rob Wilmshurst said:
“Fan-to-Fan is a safe space where customers won’t see any vastly inflated prices or have the worry of purchasing from unscrupulous sources – basically it’s the antithesis of secondary sites.”
In addition to Fan-to-Fan, See continues to proactively block touts from making purchases - something the company has been doing for more than 15 years. This includes cancelling suspicious purchases, blocking transactions from cards associated with known touts and enabling anti-bot technology on seetickets.com
Rob Wilmshurst added:
“I estimate we’ve stopped tens of thousands of tickets from falling into the wrong hands over the years. The way I see it, we haven’t put a load of special measures in place to stamp out touts – doing everything we can to ensure real fans get tickets is part of our day-to-day job and has been for a very long time.”
Only tickets originally bought through See can be sold via Fan-to-Fan meaning the original buyer can be verified by See. It is free for sellers to list tickets with buyers paying only a 5% fee making it the cheapest resale site of its kind.
See is a member of the FanFair Alliance – an organisation which works with consumers and the wider music industry to clamp down on touting.
Adam Webb, campaign manager for FanFair Alliance said:
“The success of Fan-to-Fan should be rightly celebrated. See have done a great job in creating a secure marketplace which allows fans to safely buy from other genuine fans knowing they won’t be ripped off – this is where we want to see the resale market go.”

The film that gave the world one of its greatest movie heroes, Indiana Jones, is back and better than ever before!
Relive the magic on the silver screen with the original great adventure Raiders of the Lost Ark with John Williams’ epic score performed live to picture by a full symphony orchestra!
The year is 1936, and professor of archaeology and “obtainer of rare antiquities” Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is tasked by U.S. Army Intelligence to recover the legendary Ark of the Covenant before it falls into the hands of the Nazis. Indy’s quest takes him to Nepal and Egypt, reuniting him with an old friend (John Rhys-Davies), an old foe (Paul Freeman), and an ex-flame (Karen Allen) who falls somewhere in between. Armed with his hat, whip and wits, our intrepid hero must face formidable enemies – and impossible odds – to save the day and the world.
This new tour follows the huge nationwide success of Jaws in Concert and Jurassic Park in Concert. Raiders Of the Lost Ark will be accompanied by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Ben Palmer.
