New UT policy cracks down on ticket scalpers

The University of Tennessee announced new rules Thursday that take aim at ticket scalpers.

The new policy prohibits commercial sales activities, including the resell of tickets to athletic events, music concerts and other campus events, in front of Neyland Stadium and Thompson Boling-Arena in the hours leading up to the event.

The ban is effective starting four hours prior to the beginning of the event and remains in effect until it is finished.
