TicketsMarket UK removes links to bullfighting tickets
09 September 2015
The Irish Council Against Blood Sports has thanked ticket price comparison company, TicketsMarket, for removing links to bullfighting tickets.
Responding to an appeal in which we highlighted the cruelty of bullfighting, a TicketsMarket spokesperson stated: "We also think it isn't appropriate to promote this 'sport' and will therefore remove these tickets from our site(s)."
Among the tickets removed were for bullfighting in Ronda and Madrid.
