London - Tickets for Leicester City's final home game of the season against Everton are selling for almost £8,00 online, it emerged Tuesday.

The Foxes need just three wins from their final five games to seal a remarkable Premier League title success after starting the season as 5,000/1 outsiders.

Season tickets sold out last May, with the club putting a cap of 23,000 in their 32,500 capacity King Power Stadium.

After the remaining tickets for the Everton match on May 7 sold out within 90 minutes on Monday, one online site was selling individual tickets for £7,869.14.

"Demand was higher for City's final home match and penultimate league fixture of an extraordinary campaign, with the vast majority of Gold and Family Fox Members able to secure their seat," said a club spokesman.

"The unauthorised sale of football tickets is a criminal offence under UK law. Leicester City Football Club will take action against any ticket touting or any attempt to resell tickets for above their face value.

"We encourage all supporters to report any such activity to the club."
