A record number of ticket requests for EURO 2020!The first-ever cross-border European Championship will take place from 12 June to 12 July, with requests for tickets already exceeding that of France 2016
Friday, February 14, 2020
We’ve nearly hit the 30-million mark for requests for UEFA EURO 2020, the first-ever cross-border European Championship that will take place across 12 cities from 12 June to 12 July, including Rome. During the pre-sale phase last December that was reserved for fans from teams that have already qualified, there were a total of 8,977,427 ticket requests, which is more than triple the number of the requests from the same sales window four years ago. To be precise, data from the last edition’s general sale revealed that there were 19.3 million requests - a figure that has since been dwarfed by an unprecedented 28.3m enquiries. This was in addition to 2.5m tickets made available to the public.
Therefore, this latest batch of ticket requests for UEFA EURO 2020 is double that of France 2016, which is an apt milestone for the competition’s 60th anniversary.
As for Italy, who were the only team alongside Belgium to win all of their qualifiers, fans of the National Team are now eager to get their hands on a prized ticket. In particular, people are keen to attend the Azzurri’s opener against Turkey, which will kick off the EURO 2020 on Friday 12 June at the Stadio Olimpico. However, after this fixture, Roberto Mancini’s side will also be taking on Switzerland and Wales, on 17 and 21 June respectively. Meanwhile, Rome will host one quarter-final fixture on 4 July.
The tournament final will be played at Wembley on 12 July - with 714,000 fans already requesting a ticket for the game. There’s also been great interest in the group game between France and Germany (710,000 requests), while 64 per cent of requests have been from fans of the host countries. However, there have also been plenty of interest from countries such as Finland, Austria, France and Poland.
Any remaining tickets will be sold closer to the time of the tournament, while fans looking to sell tickets will only be able to do so via UEFA’s official resale platform. Hospitality packages are also still available via this link: https://euro2020.hospitality.uefa.com/
