Tickets from Euroteam - your own risk

Here is a description of how it works (or not actually), when you buy tickets from Euroteam. Note, you can get lucky and get your tickets, but this has happened frequently:

You order your tickets in good time, and pay your money to Euroteam.
Euroteam doesn't have the tickets but will try to source them for you.
If they get them cheaper than what you paid for them, will get your tickets. If prices are higher on the market, you have a problem! Euroteam will then not buy you any tickets.
Euroteam will continously push forward the time of delivery all the way to that you will get them outside jut before the event. You will get explanations that they are travelling to hotels delivering, and "you will get them soon". Then you are likely to get the message that they have failed to get you any tickets, in the last minute.
You have travelled to got to an event, have taken all the cost for this, and have no other chance of getting any tickets. The cost of travel hotel etc and pain of missing the event you wanted to see are yours to suck up.

If you are lucky, you will get your money back after a lot of processing and a lot of time. I have not heard of anybody getting any compenstion for all other cost. Money back for the tickets - at best.

Euroteam will in the worst case, for them, have "borrowed" your money for a few months before paying them back to you (or keeping them in some cases). The best case is that they find the tickets cheap and sell them to you with a profit.

But the risk is all yours, and Euroteam just fails to deliver if they are not making a profit on what they sold you.

Euroteam operating several websites

According to the police, Euroteam is using several different websites to sell its (non existing) tickets. The same warning goes out for all of these sites, as you can read below.

Only buy Olympic tickets from

These are the sites that Euroteam is supposed to be using:

  1. I bought 4 tickets for my 2 children, husband and I on 26th April 2011 through the company Euroteam (total cost £350) for the Gymnastics event at the North Greenwich Arena London on Sunday 29th July 2012.

    I telephoned the helpdesk based in Norway to make enquiries about our tickets ,which had already been purchased and was told that the tickets would be delivered to my address 2 weeks before the Olympic start date on 27th July 2012.

    We did not receive any tickets on or after 27th July 2012 in the post or by courier which was paid in advance to “Euroteam” .

    As our event was due to start on 29th July we decided to attend the Olympic park anyway despite not being in possession of the tickets that we paid for and as we could have predicted we were refused entry and turned away from the Olympic park by security.

    I asked some of the many security staff and volunteers were we could collect our tickets and was sent in different directions which turned out to be extremely frustrating.
    It began to dawn on us that the whole operation was a complete scam and we were left wondering how many other people went through the same procedure as us only to be left frozen out and basically ignored.
    Our children are 13 and 10 years old at the time of writing and they were looking forward to this day months ago and it was very difficult for us to explain to them why we were not going to watch the gymnastics.

    The sad thing is that we may never get another chance to see anything like this in London again which makes it hard to take.

    Meanwhile “Euroteam” are still trading and causing heartache for thousands of people.

  2. Sorry to heaar Margarita.

    Do report it to the police, who I believe already now is investigating them. But also contact the Norwegian authorities, e.g., European Consumer (see here:

    And spread the word, e.g., this site and other reviewforums.

    It is a shame they still operate!
