Ticket2Final OU v Wigan Athletic AFC Ltd

Contract – Breach of contract. The claimant developed a business venture whereby it sold options to sports fans which enabled them to purchase a ticket to future sporting events. The claimant brought claims for damages for breach of contract and misrepresentation against the defendant football club, alleging that it had, in breach of an agreement, failed to provide it access to a number of tickets for the 2012/2013 FA Cup semi-final and final. The Chancery Division, allowing the claim in part, held that a representation made by the defendant and relied upon by the claimant had been false and was actionable under the terms of the agreement. The claim succeeded, save in relation to allegations based on fraud.
