How can I purchase tickets for Euro 2020?

Euro 2020 tickets have been released over a number of dates. The application window for the tournament began back in June last year, where fans had to register for a lottery-like draw. In July and August 2019, fans found out their fate. In December, the ticket sales reopened for fans of qualified nations.

There are still four Euro 2020 teams to be decided. In April 2020, fans of national teams who qualify for the tournament via the play-offs will be able to apply for tickets. 

This could include Scotland, who are on the same playoff 'path' as Norway, Serbia and Israel, and one of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, who are on the same path as Bosnia and Slovakia.

In case you’re now feeling pessimistic about your country’s chances at the tournament, there will be a ticket resale in April 2020, giving fans a chance to sell theirs on or buy tickets to the tournament. 

How can I get tickets to the Euro 2020 Final?

Tickets for the Euro 2020 have already been on sale. These were released along with tickets for all other stages of the competition last summer.

Euro 2020 final tickets are eligible for resale in April. 

Which venues are set to host Euro 2020?

There are 21 cities from across the continent bid to host Euro 2020 matches, including London, Glasgow and Dublin. Among the unsuccessful bids, Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium and Stockholm’s Friends Arena were both eliminated by vote.

The successful stadium bids are as follows:

  • Amsterdam, Netherlands: Johan Cruyff Arena

  • Baku, Azerbaijan: Olympic Stadium

  • Bilbao, Spain: San Mamés

  • Bucharest, Romania: Arena Națională

  • Budapest, Hungary: Puskás Aréna

  • Glasgow, Scotland: Hampden Park

  • London, England: Wembley Stadium

  • Munich, Germany: Allianz Arena

Which country is hosting the most Euro 2020 matches?

Wembley Stadium in London will host the most matches of any venue at Euro 2020, with seven games to be played there – including the final and semis.

Originally, it was planned for Belgium to build a new national stadium, Eurostadium, in Brussels. Eurostadium was stripped of hosting rights to a handful of games at the tournament in December 2017, however, with UEFA citing uncertainty as to whether the project would be completed. 

These games were instead given to Wembley. 

What dates are Euro 2020 set to be held between?

The European Championship will be held between June 12 and July 12. The first match will be between Italy and Turkey at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with the final being held at Wembley.

Is Euro 2020 qualifying still ongoing?

There are just four places left at Euro 2020 - or 'paths' to the finals, as coined by UEFA - to be decided by four sets of play-offs. The nations involved are as follows: 

Path A: Iceland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania

Path B: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland

Path C: Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Israel

Path D: Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus

When are the Euro 2020 play-offs? 

All semi-finals across all four paths are set to commence on March 26. The finals will take place on March 31, with all 24 Euro 2020 nations confirmed that day.

What ball will be used for Euro 2020?

As is customary for major international tournaments, Adidas will be supplying the ball for Euro 2020. Named Uniforia - a portmanteau of “unity” and “euphoria”, the ball is mainly black and white, similar to the Telstar effort of the last World Cup, only with flashes of fluorescent colour.
