How can fans obtain tickets?
Unsuccessful applicants become part of the UEFA 'Fans First' programme, meaning they would be the first to know about any future opportunities to purchase tickets.
Tickets were then made available via the participating national associations (PNAs) in an application window that ran from 4–18 December 2019. To be eligible to apply for tickets during this phase, fans had to meet the specific criteria defined by the national associations.
All existing tickets remain valid for the tournament in 2021. Existing ticket buyers who nevertheless wish to return their ticket(s), had a final opportunity to request a refund from 18 June to 25 June 2020 via euro2020.com/tickets. Dates for potential future ticket sales, including for fans of the four teams that qualified via the play-offs, will be confirmed at a later stage.
