The Rugby Football League says anyone claiming free entry to Saturday’s Challenge Cup final but not entitled to take advantage of the relevant offer will have their tickets cancelled.
The governing body responded after it emerged that some people had discovered a discount code offering tickets for just £2 booking fee.
Huddersfield take on Wigan after Featherstone and Leigh came out in the 1895 Cup final in a double header at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
A limited number of NHS staff are eligible for the offer under the ‘Tickets for Good’ scheme.
While it emerged that some fans not working for the NHS were demanding free tickets, others who had paid for them took to social media to express their displeasure.
The RFL said in a statement: “In reference to comments about the availability of tickets for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a limited number (less than 200) have been made available through Tickets for Good, to allow NHS staff to attend the event. We do the same with Tickets for Troops.
“Anyone who has claimed these tickets but is not entitled to them by signing up for Tickets for Good will have their tickets cancelled.”
