You can not sell to friends or family for more than what you have paid, this is strictly against the rules and regulations.

If it is found that tickets are misused, sold on the black market, are in the hands of ticket touts, found being offered on the street, or sold online illegally you run the risk of every ticket we sold you being cancelled without any opportunity for a refund being issued to you under the breach of the rules and regulations.
