Ticket sales continue apace as fans snap up the remaining seats ahead of the UEFA European Under-21 Championship's big kick-off in Denmark this weekend.

With Denmark looking forward to a bank holiday weekend, the host nation's opening Group A game with Switzerland on Saturday is unsurprisingly proving a big draw with the match in Aalborg close to being sold out.

There are also just over 1,000 tickets left for each of the Danes' following two group-stage fixtures – the meeting with Belarus in Aarhus on 14 June and their encounter with Iceland in Aalborg on 18 June.

Any remaining tickets for a game will go on general sale at the respective stadiums on the day of the match. They can also be bought at the dedicated sales outlet in each of the four host cities until four hours before kick-off:

Aab Shoppen (Friis City Center) – Aalborg
Billetkontoret (Aarhus Stadion) – Aarhus
Kongrescenteret (Østergade 37 ) – Herning
Musik & Teater (Gravene 25) – Viborg

Continental heavyweights Spain and England are also popular with the public, and only a handful of tickets remain for their eye-catching Group B opener in Herning on Sunday. Sales for the Spaniards' contest with the Czech Republic in Viborg on 15 June have been brisk too, while the Czechs' tie with England at the same venue four days later is turning into another main attraction.

Following the group stage, supporters will be able to see the tournament's four best teams in action in the semi-finals with places still up for grabs at the stadiums in Viborg and Herning for those fixtures on 22 June.

Those wanting to attend the final in Aarhus on 25 June, however, will have to hurry with a little over 1,000 tickets yet to be sold for the game that will decide the 2011 European Under-21 champions.
