Ed Sheeran fans still have the chance to grab themselves a ticket to his huge Wembley Stadium shows .

The singer-songwriter is performing at the legendary venue over June 14-17 next year as part of the UK leg of his ÷ (divide) tour.

Since tickets were released on general sale on July, 8 an incredible one million have been sold in the UK alone.

However, 10% of those tickets have been listed on secondary tout websites, despite their ineligibility if so.

This resulted in fans becoming victims to massive hidden overcharges on tout sites including Viagogo.

The Shape of You singer has been working with promoters to cancel any tickets that are being resold for trade, telling fans that the only site to buy secondary tickets from is Twickets.

Promoters of the stadium tours, AEG have told fans who’ve purchased tickets from Viagogo to consult the FanFair Alliance website where they will find a step by step guide on how to seek a refund.
