Beşiktaş sold out all their tickets on Monday and accepted traditional paper tickets in addition to the controversial Passolig e-ticketing system.

Passolig is compulsory in the Süper Lig but fans have boycotted the new system amid personal data security fears.

The e-ticketing system is currently being taken to court by a non governmental organization named Supporter Rights Solidarity Center (Taraf-Der).

Taraf-Der are campaigning for the Passolig to be disbanded on grounds that the e-ticketing system violates the constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights.

The company issuing the cards can sell private data to third parties and charge a bank commission on every sale.
