UEFA has now closed its Euro 2020 ticket sales window for fans of the 20 qualified teams, as well as the ballot for non-affiliated fans.

The sales round followed the general public ticket sales in summer 2019, when 19.3 million requests were received for the 1.5 million tickets on offer.

Overall, the football tournament has three million tickets available, with 82 per cent allocated to fans.

Tickets for fans of the 20 qualified teams will be allocated in accordance with the process set by each national association, with all applicants to be notified of the outcome by the end of January 2020.

Unsuccessful applicants for the public ballot may be invited, based on their ballot ranking, to purchase any available tickets at a later stage due to failed payments or ticket returns.

Fans of the four play-off winners will be able to apply for tickets shortly after those ties have been completed on March 31.

The 12-host city event is scheduled to be held from June 12 in Rome until the final at Wembley Stadium, London on July 12.

Fans who secure tickets and can no longer attend will be given the option to re-sell their tickets through the official UEFA platform. Ticket resale details will be announced in spring 2020.

Earlier this week, the Scottish government passed a new piece of legislation that will see ticket touts fine up to £5,000 if caught reselling Euro 2020 passes. The UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Bill criminalises touting for profit, either in person, on the secondary market or privately.
