UEFA claims it is adopting a “fans first” ticketing policy for Euro 2020, saying that more than 80 per cent of passes will go to fans and the general public.

The governing body for European football has been slated this season for its ticketing decisions for the Champions League final in Madrid and the Europa League final in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Euro 2020 is selling one million tickets for €50 (£44/$56) or under for the 44 matches of the tournament, with 1.5m passes going on sale to the general public in the first phase of sales from June 12 to July 12.

The second phase will kick off in December after the finals draw, with a third phase to begin in April 2020 after the final four places have been confirmed by the play-offs.

Around 40,000 tickets will cost fans under €100 for the semi-finals and final in London.

UEFA has unveiled two types of tickets for fans to choose from, with the first being an individual pass permitting entry to one match in one stadium. The other is a ‘Follow my Team’ ticket, allowing supporters to attend a knockout stage match of their favourite team independently of the location of the match. If the team is eliminated before the knockout stage, 100 per cent of the ticket price will be refunded.

UEFA will make a number of tickets available for disabled fans at every match, in the lowest price category, regardless of their location in the stadium. Disabled fans can also request a complimentary seat for an accompanying person.
