Understand the case
The high value of the tickets has caught the attention of the Amazon prosecutors, who proposed to Justice, last Monday, one injunction request to suspend sales, which are the responsibility of the CBF. The action started from the 51st Prosecutor's Office Specialized in Consumer Protection, whose holder promoter Otavio Gomes. According to him, MP-AM received several complaints and representations due to the high prices charged for tickets.
The example used in a statement by the public prosecutor is the comparison of values between matches of Manaus and Fortaleza, both the same competition. The greatest discrepancy between the values of Castelao and Amazon Arena is related to ticket (all) the bleachers / upper chair. In Manaus, the value is R $ 253. In Fortaleza, R$ 70.
The Promoter of Justice held that there was no justifiable abusive increase in the collection of tickets for the match. In Civil Action, Otavio Gomes asked the CBF establish adjustment in values and sales stay suspended until the appointment of compatible values with other states.
Whereas the sale of tickets was opened in early June, both physical and online, action asks buyers are compensated with amounts paid “abusive prices”.
