Euro 2016 applicatio­ns to open on Monday morning

-

Uefa has confirmed that tickets for next summer’s Euro 2016 finals will go on sale from 11am next Monday, following on from today’s group draw in Paris.

The applicatio­n process will run until Monday, January 18th, with success not dependent on when the applicatio­n is made.

The FAI will apply its fan loyalty scheme in deciding the allocation of tickets, although as a second step Uefa may still perform a random draw if necessary.

Tickets will be offered in four categories, starting at ¤25 up to ¤145 for the group matches, although prices for the opening game involving hosts France are higher, going from ¤75 to ¤595.

Tickets for the round of 16 matches remain the same as the group stages, while the quarter-final prices are between ¤45 and ¤195.

Semi-final tickets range from ¤65 to ¤495, while the final will see fans shell out between ¤85 and an eye-watering ¤895.

Each applicatio­n will be limited to four tickets per match, while Follow My Team ticket packages, only available in categories one and three, and accessibil­ity tickets – priced at category four level – will also be offered for sale.

Applicants for Republic of Ireland tickets must be a citizen of the country and also be at least 18 years old.

Successful applicants will begin to receive notificati­on from Uefa in February, while unsuccessf­ul applicants will find out three weeks after successful applicants as more tickets could become available following the first round offer.
