NYON/PARIS: An additional chance for fans to get tickets for UEFA EURO 2016 is coming up on 26 April at 12:00 CET.

With the tournament just 50 days away, EURO 2016 SAS is keen to ensure that any fans who are still looking for tickets can buy them through an official channel. Therefore, a ticket portal will open on 26 April where fans can purchase tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. Supporters are advised that, with the excitement for the event building, these tickets will sell out quickly.

These tickets have become available from a variety of sources. Firstly, as we get closer to the tournament, the layouts of the stadia have become clearer, which has allowed UEFA to finalise the exact number of seats for each venue.

Secondly, some tickets initially reserved for fans of a number of participating teams have not been taken up and these tickets will now be made available to the general public.

Finally, UEFA will also make available for sale some tickets, which, due to UEFA’s successful legal efforts to minimize unauthorized resale, have been cancelled as a result of the breach of the ticketing terms and conditions by previous tickets holders.

UEFA once again would like to reiterate the message that fans should refrain from buying tickets from any sources other than the official UEFA EURO 2016 ticket portal on EURO2016.com.

It is extremely likely that there will be queues on the ticket portal on the first few days after the portal opens. Matches that have significant numbers of tickets on sale will be displayed on EURO2016.com so fans do not have to queue to see what is available.

This ticket portal will only be selling tickets in Categories 1-2-3 and 4. For Accessibility tickets, please click here to access the lottery portal that is open for applications until 25 April.

MasterCard or Visa are the only credit cards accepted for payment.

While fans are waiting for 26 April, they can register their interest now to be notified when tickets for certain matches become available on the portal.

The tickets on sale as from 26 April are for individuals only. Information about Corporate VIP Hospitality, which delivers premium seating with fine dining in the stadium, is available on the UEFA EURO 2016 Hospitality website on EURO2016.com.
