Thankfully the Euro 2020 tournament is due to be held in the summer, albeit a year late thanks to COVID-19. So with the tournament seemingly good to go ahead, people will now be looking to purchase tickets to watch their nation play.
But how do you get access to tickets? And where do the Euros take place and in what stadiums? Here, we will have everything you need to know when it comes to purchasing your tickets as well as all of the stadiums that will be playing host during the tournament.
Here's what you'll find in the article:
Normally, when it comes to international tournaments, the matches are all played in one host city. With that city having the resources to hold all teams and having numerous stadium options, it is a great experience for the country.
However this time, UEFA has done something a little different. Instead of being held in a single country, the Euro Cup locations are going to be played across 12 host cities on the continent.
Here are the stadiums that will be hosting games throughout the tournament:
This is England’s premier stadium for international games. It holds 90,000 fans and it is said to be the crown jewel of the stadiums that UEFA has for the Euros.
It will be the biggest stadium in the tournament, and it is one of the prime Eurocup locations. The final of the tournament will be played here as well as the two semi-finals along with several group games at this wonderful stadium.
The oldest stadium at the Euro’s and one of the best Eurocup locations as it once boasted a maximum capacity of 150,000 people.
However, with safety regulations, just over 50,000 fans will be allowed in and it is one of the most famous stadiums at the tournament. It will play host to three group stage games and one round of 16 clashes.

The newest of all stadiums at the Euros having only been opened in 2019.
The Hungarian ground holds a little over 65,000 fans and it was named in honor of Ferenc Puskas. This great Eurocup location will host three group stage games and will host another from the next round.

Everyone loves Spain’s stadiums right? It is the eighth biggest and has some of the same features as Munich’s Allianz Arena.
It plays host to both Athletic Bilbao’s men’s and women’s sides and has over 48,000 fans flock inside and out to see the women’s Bilbao side face Atletico Madrid in 2019. Holds only 40,000 and it will see three group stage games and a round of 16 matches up.
This stadium is the smallest of all the Euros’ stadium, holding just over 38,000 so when compared to others it is tiny. Despite its small size, it has seen its fair share of high-profile games, these include both finals of the UEFA Cup and European Cup Winners Cup.
The small stadium will host three group stage matches as well as a round of 16 matches.
So there are all of the stadiums that will feature at the tournament and there are some incredible Eurocup locations for fans to see their national side play.
Now let’s get to perhaps the most important thing, the tickets. We will now go through all stadium tickets for Euro 2020 and all the other Eurocup ticket information.
Given that the COVID-19 pandemic is still wreaking havoc across the globe, getting tickets could be an interesting experience in itself. Originally, you had to apply for Euro Cup tickets way back in 2019 as that was well before COVID hit.
When applying for tickets back in 2019, fans could apply for either a category 1 or 2 ticket as this will enhance their chances of actually getting Stadium tickets for Euro 2020 for most game venues. For a fan's best possible chance at securing Eurocup tickets for their chosen team, they can select matches and ticket categories that have a “good chance” display on the website which is shown to be green.
This will be easily seen if you click on the ticket portal at euro2020.com/tickets. The ticket categories that are of the highest demand, say for England, Italy, Germany and Spain games will be highlighted in red.
If you happen to be unsuccessful, you will then be put into a program called UEFA ‘Fans First” and what this means is that you will be notified first if any tickets become available. Keep in mind also that when you make your applications, you will not be charged for your Eurocup tickets. If you are successful then you will be told so via email and then you will be given a select timeframe in which you have to fully pay for the tickets that you have purchased.
As mentioned above, that was back in 2019 and was before COVID hit. At this stage, it is still unclear if any fans at all will be allowed to attend any matches. Currently, there are no Eurocup tickets for sale.
The next available ticket sales date is currently scheduled for April 2020. For you to keep up to date with everything regarding stadium tickets for Euro 2020 regularly visit EURO2020.com/tickets. Doing this will give you the best chance of knowing first hand when and if tickets will even become available for the tournament.
On top of that, it is recommended that you make an UEFA.com account or if you already have, you can choose to opt in to get all the latest information regarding the potential sales of Stadium tickets for Euro 2020 and general Eurocup tickets too.
You can do this by following two easy steps.
As COVID is still running rampant in some sections of Europe, there could be a chance that UEFA moves a match in case there is an outbreak, and that city goes into lockdown. If there is a lockdown, then it is a good idea to keep up to date with all the news on UEFA’s website by creating an account. You will be notified if there are any changes in the city you are in.
UEFA has stated that if a match is moved to a different city that they deem to be a “reasonable distance” then fans who have purchased tickets will not get a refund. However, if a match is moved to a city that is more than 50 km away from the original venue, then people who have tickets to that match can get a full refund on their ticket if they cannot attend the game or chose not to attend the match. For more information regarding tickets and refunding visit The official website for European football | UEFA.com
If you have bet on a match and that game is then postponed for whatever reason, then those bets will become void and all future bets will be suspended until a new time and date for the match have been finalized.
As with every other part of the world, if for some reason a city goes into lockdown at the Euro 2020 tournament then you of course cannot go anywhere. You will be notified by the local government and authorities on how to best proceed given the current situation.
