Real Madrid released a statement on their official website announcing that “635 season tickets had been seized on account of the incorrect use made by the season-ticket holders named on the tickets.” This was carried out with help of Madrid’s Municipal Police. The statement went on to say:
Real Madrid C.F. has referred these cases to the club's Social Disciplinary Committee in order for the appropriate disciplinary proceedings to be taken immediately, with the possibility that these could lead to the banning of these members.
Real Madrid C.F. shall continue to work thoroughly in its efforts to combat this illegal practice and shall do so through the only available means: in collaboration and coordination with the state security forces.
The original number of tickets withdrawn stood at 357, with Madrid providing more extensive reasoning for their actions in a previous statement.

It seems that the club management has uncovered further cases of illegal activities, leading them to cancel another 635 season tickets.
