Fans across Europe can apply for tickets to games in each of the 12 host cities, including Glasgow, with applications open for a month until 12 July 2019.
With 51 matches taking place across 12 nations for the first time ever, this EURO will be closer than ever to the fans. Hampden Park will host 3 group matches (15, 19, 23 June 2020) which will include two home games for Scotland if they qualify, and a round of 16 match (30 June).
The opening game will be played in Rome’s Stadio Olympico on Friday 12 June 2020, while Wembley Stadium will host the two semi-finals and final, with the new European Champions crowned on Sunday 12 July 2020.
As Glasgow prepares to add another jewel to its event crown, the city will be in festival mode as football fans from both home and abroad celebrate this special tournament. Fan zones are expected to welcome thousands to enjoy outdoor entertainment, guaranteeing a spectacular and accessible experience for fans, families and visitors alike.
Councillor David McDonald, Depute Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow Life, said: “Our city is one of the top five sporting cities in the world and, just this week, we were also announced as the first-ever European Leading Festival and Event Destination. Events such as EURO 2020 are an integral part of building and maintaining our reputation on the world stage – and we are so proud to play our part in this historic event.
“In the biggest-ever football event to come to Glasgow, we will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some of the world’s best sporting action right on our own doorstep – so I’d encourage all the football fans in the city to get their ticket applications in before 12 July!”
