Why are fans selling their tickets for more than face value?

Is this an example - one of the best seats in the house worth £45 + fees for £30 ?

initial obvious reason is for profit. Second thought could be to cover the cost of replacing the season ticket card if it isn't returned after the game.
that link posted though is for a £30 ticket, no mention f fees in the post. maybe that's why he wants people to PM him.

Sorry you are missing the point.
Steve is selling the ticket for £30
If Mr Non S/T holder went to the ticket office and was lucky enough to buy this same ticket, he would pay £45 = whatever fees the club loads
Plus Mr Non S/T holder hasn't had to make any commitment - could in theory be his first game in ten years, where as us ST holders are paying our money, regardless of how well or poorly the team is doing and who the opposition is

Each game costs me about £25 and that's what I would expect
Obviously depends on where you sit and when you buy your ticket to work out the exact cost

The point you are making is that it is higher than what it cost you or me.
This cost (plus any additional costs/losses incurred which have to be taken into account) is not face value.
Face value is £35 / £45, etc.
Example:
A promoter buys a load of tickets for (say) Adele at a discounted price.
They sell them at the face value price shown on the ticket of £ 90 plus handling fee.
As they have paid maybe £60 each for those tickets, are they selling at "higher than face value" ?

I want people to PM me rather than either of us publish our number on here.
