The first batch of fans have found out if they have secured tickets for UEFA Euro 2020 through a random ballot following 19.3 million ticket requests.
Successful applicants were informed via email, while fans were also able to log into their UEFA account to check on their application. Successful fans are required to pay for their tickets by 2pm CEST on 18th August.
UEFA has urged successful fans to pay for their tickets within the specified payment period to ensure they ‘LIVE IT. FOR REAL’ – the slogan designed to inspire and encourage fans to experience matches live at the stadium.
Fans who fail to pay for their tickets within the allotted time risk missing out on attending Euro 2020 matches, with future opportunities to purchase tickets set to be limited. If successful applicants do not make their payment in time, their tickets will go back on sale.
Fans who did not receive tickets during the opening phase will be the first to be notified about the chance to purchase tickets through UEFA’s ‘Fans First’ programme as of late August.
The next opportunity for fans to apply for tickets will be in December, after the draw for the tournament has been made. One million tickets will be made available to fans through the participating national associations, and fans must meet specific criteria as defined by the associations.
Euro 2020 will take place across 12 different host cities in June and July 2020. A record three million tickets have been made available for fans, with almost 2.5 million tickets having been reserved for fans of the participating teams and the general public.
