After that deadline, both tickets will be automatically personalized with your personal data.

Can I determine the selling price in the Resale Shop myself?
In general, the tickets can only be resold at the original price incl. ticket sale fees and a processing fee of 15%. We allow you a margin of 10% to recover possibly incurred ticket sale fees. Who pays the 15% processing fee (seller, buyer or 50/50), can determine the seller himself. Thereby we hope to counteract the black market with some high-priced tickets.
