France has been designated the host country for the UEFA EURO 2016 games, which means tickets for the games occurring in 10 cities across the country – from Paris to Bordeaux to Marseille – can now be applied for until July 10th.
Next year, 24 teams will be competing for the Henri Delaunay Cup – the European Crown – in a tournament first inaugurated in 1960. With tickets starting at just 25 euros and with four general price categories, the games can not only be great and affordable for football lovers, but also for families looking for outings in Paris and other French cities.
Paris itself will host two games at Parc des Princes (24 Rue du Commandant Guilbaud, 75016 Paris), or you can also go a short distance to Saint-Denis to the north of Paris, where two matches will be held at Stade de France (Zac du Cornillon Nord, 93216 Saint-Denis).
Due to the high anticipated demand for the one million tickets available for 51 matches, UEFA EURO 2016 has implemented a two-tiered system for ticket distribution.
First, you must apply for the tickets for the game(s) you would like to see. You can do so here, following the designated instructions.
Then, once the application window has closed, UEFA will match demand and supply for the tickets using a random selection process. You will be notified whether or not you have been selected to receive by email from late July to August. Application for tickets during this first one-month period does not guarantee a spot, but the ticket portal for the general public is only open for a limited time.
Tip: If you do not succeed at getting a ticket this time, a ticket re-sale platform will be open during March and April 2016.
When? Ticket applications are open from June 10th to July 10th, 2015 at 8:16PM. The actual games will take place from June 10th to July 10th, 2016.
