Blackburn have warned fans they risk facing action if they sell on season tickets to Manchester United supporters ahead of Saturday's game at Ewood Park.
United need just a point to secure the Premier League title while Rovers are battling to avoid relegation from the top flight.
Steve Kean's side are three points above the drop zone with just two games left, but some Blackburn supporters are selling their season tickets to United fans hoping to see the Red Devils clinch a record 19th league championship.
That would mean some supporters are not segregated, causing a security concern at Ewood Park, and the club has vowed to root out those responsible.
"Reports that some Blackburn Rovers supporters are 'selling' their season tickets to Manchester United fans ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League fixture at Ewood Park have brought a furious response from the club," read a statement on the club's official website.
"Club officials - fully supported by Lancashire Police - warn that everything possible is being done to minimise the illegal practice and stress that any offenders will face strong and appropriate action.
"Rovers have information and intelligence of season-ticket holders selling their tickets directly to United followers - there is even evidence of season tickets being advertised on the internet."
The club's managing director Tom Finn said: "This is a very disturbing situation, not to mention a criminal offence, and a situation we could well do without leading up to what is a massive fixture.
"We are currently monitoring things very closely and, where necessary, will cancel the season tickets, so denying entry to the stadium on the day.
"It also goes without saying that we need as many Rovers fans inside Ewood Park on Saturday as we can.
"Fervent home support has worked wonders for us in recent years and we need it again now."
