The sales window for the international general public to apply for UEFA Europa League final tickets has closed, with applicants to learn if they have been successful by Thursday 29 March.
International ticket sales have closed for the 2012 UEFA Europa League final at the National Arena Bucharest in the Romanian capital on Wednesday 9 May.
The general public ticket sales process began – exclusively via UEFA.com – on Wednesday 7 March and ended today, Tuesday 20 March. The allocation will now be decided by lottery, with each valid application entering a ballot regardless of the time of submission within the application period. Successful candidates will be entitled to a maximum of two tickets.
Applicants will be informed by email by Thursday 29 March if they have been successful or not. Candidates will be able to check the status of their applications by logging into the ticket portal from 29 March. Tickets will then be delivered by registered post no later than the end of April.
Online applications will be checked to ensure that anyone banned from attending football games is unsuccessful in any attempt to purchase tickets. UEFA underlines that no tickets are being distributed through agencies or brokers. UEFA also encourages fans not to be lured into deals with touts who not only demand exorbitant prices, but often are not in possession of the tickets they purport to have for sale.
