Ticketing for UEFA EURO 2020 has smashed all records, with the latest phase for fans of qualified teams taking the overall ticket requests tally to 28.3m – double the figure for UEFA EURO 2016.

Ticket sales have come in two phases:

  • General public sales (12 June to 12 July) – 19.3m ticket applications
  • Fans of qualified teams (4–18 December) – 9m ticket applications

The latest phase, for fans of qualified teams, brought a threefold increase in ticket requests compared to UEFA EURO 2016 in France. The overall figure of 28.3m is double the previous record and apparently due in significant part to the unique nature of the first Europe-wide tournament, which features 12 host countries.

The group match between France and Germany in Munich on 16 June, for example, attracted 710,000 ticket requests – only 4,000 fewer than the Wembley final. Some 64% of applications came from fans within host nations, and there has also been strong demand from hosts' neighbouring countries such as Finland, Austria, France and Poland.

All existing tickets remain valid for the tournament in 2021. Existing ticket buyers who nevertheless wish to return their ticket(s), will have a final opportunity to request a refund from 18 June to 25 June via euro2020.com/tickets. Dates for potential future ticket sales including for fans of the four teams that will qualify via the play-offs will be confirmed at a later stage.
