Google suspends ticket site Viagogo from advertising

The Competition and Market Authority is taking the ticketing website to court, alleging it has not done enough to change its business practices.It says it is "working with the CMA".Last year, the Football Association, the trade body UK Music and some MPs signed an open letter to senior Google executives, urging it to stop Viagogo from advertising.In a statement on Wednesday, Google said: "When people use our platform for help in purchasing tickets, we want to make sure that they have an experience they can trust."This is why we have strict policies and take necessary action when we find an advertiser in breach."In response, Viagogo said: "We were extremely surprised to learn of Google's concerns today. We are confident that there has been no breach of Google's policies and look forward to working with them to resolve this as quickly as possible."
