With the football World Cup tickets it had originally bought being caught in the hands of alleged scalpers, Reliance Industries on Tuesday said it is investigating how the much-coveted and expensive tickets ended up in the Brazilian black market.

Match Hospitality, a company appointed by World Cup organiser FIFA to sell hospitality packages that includes private suites at stadiums and gourmet catering, said 59 tickets bearing RIL's name were found with the scalpers who resell tickets, usually for a hefty profit.

"We at Reliance always comply with all rules and regulations and are unaware of any such incident. We are investigating the same," the company spokesperson said.

RIL said it had bought the tickets through another company. "Octagon works with FIFA and their sponsors. We have appointed them as our agents to buy some hospitality packages. They have been handling the tickets and the packages," the spokesperson said.
