How to buy tickets
Fans can apply for tickets on the UEFA Euro 2020 Ticket Portal, although the window is now closed and applicants are being informed whether they have been successful or not.
However, many tickets are likely to go unclaimed and will be resold to the public.
An official resale platform is expected to launch in 2020 allowing fans to pass on unwanted tickets, meaning you will still get a chance to snap up a seat, but you’ll have to move fast when the window arrives.
