On December 12 UEFA launched ticket sales. Please see the video or read the text to know more about the ticket regulations applied.
A specific ticket allocation has been reserved for fans of these 16 participating teams and tickets will be sold based on the nationality and/or country of residence of the applicant. Lotteries will determine which applicants receive tickets and supporters therefore do not have to rush to apply for tickets. The end date of the application period will be 29 February 2012 – or earlier for some associations according to their own regulations as indicated in their respective ticketing portal.
A total of 32% of the overall stadium capacities has been reserved for fans of the finalist teams. Each side will get 16% of the overall net stadium capacity, or a minimum 6,000 tickets, for each of their group stage matches. For quarter-finals and semi-finals the number of tickets set aside is 5,000 per participating team, and for the final 9,000 per team.
A total of 1.4m tickets will be available for UEFA EURO 2012 and about 85% will end up in the hands of supporters, either through UEFA’s official website, the national associations of the 16 sides or competitions organised by tournament sponsors. The remaining tickets will be allocated to non-participating member associations, to other members of the football family such as confederations, clubs, referees and other officials, to host governments and host cities, to VIP guests, as well as for the corporate hospitality programme.
