SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — With new event venues set to open in South Dakota’s largest city, the Sioux Falls City Council has approved a ban on ticket scalping.

Council members voted 6-0 Tuesday night to make it illegal to resell event tickets for more than face value within a half mile of the event venue. The move will enable the Sioux Falls Sports Authority to make bids on hosting NCAA athletic events such as postseason tournaments.

Violators of the ticket-scalping ban could face a fine of up to $500 and a 30-day jail sentence.

The $117 million, 13,000-seat Denny Sanford Premier Center is set to open in the fall of 2014. The $19 million, 3,200-seat Sanford Pentagon basketball complex is opening this fall.
