Some people are trying to take advantage of Jets fan loyalty by selling the free Whiteout party tickets online.

Economic Development Winnipeg and True North Sports and Entertainment (TNSE) announced Friday that future Whiteout street parties would be ticketed events. Tickets are free and available through Ticketmaster.

Matt Schaubroeck from Economic Development Winnipeg said they want people to know that it is illegal to resell tickets for more than the original cost. In this case, Schaubroeck says, it was free.

That's a statement the police backed up on Friday, saying that they are aware of the tickets for sale online.

"Ticket Scalping is the practice of buying tickets to an event and reselling them for more than the original cost," a Winnipeg Police Service statement read. Enforcement for this is regulated under City fo Winnipeg By-Law #125/2006 and Provincial Legislation under the Amusements Act.

The police say they haven't received any formal complaints from the public yet, but want to remind people to take every precaution before paying for these tickets.

Tickets have been found online for over $100 for just one Whiteout Party entry.
