Ten stadiums in Germany are readying themselves for next summer’s extravaganza of football, also known as Euro 2024.
In October, UEFA began the process of selling tickets to next summer’s Euro 2024 tournament in Germany. More than 20 million ticket applications were submitted, with 65% of the demand coming from within Germany. In total, fans from 206 countries registered and applied for tickets during the ballot period.
On Tuesday 14th November, UEFA informed applicants about whether or not they were successful. There were more than 1.2 million tickets awarded to fans in the first phase of ticket sales. However, that’s just a fraction of the 20 million+ ticket applications.
UEFA will release one million more tickets on December 2nd. To learn more about the Euro 2024 ticket process, check out our comprehensive guide on how to get Euro 2024 tickets.
Football fans went onto X, formerly known as Twitter, to either celebrate or bemoan UEFA’s ticketing process.
With the huge demand for tickets, it’s no surprise that so many fans were unsuccessful. According to UEFA, there were close to 2.3 million applications for the European Championship final. That’s 33 times the capacity of the Olympiastadion in Berlin.
Ticket prices are much more reasonable for those who buy their tickets directly through UEFA. However, those who were unsuccessful in the ballot can opt to buy Euro 2024 tickets through ticket resale sites.
