Details of the allocation of tickets for the Republic of Ireland's Euro 2016 games in Group E have been released by the FAI.
Ireland will receive 13,000 tickets for our opener with Sweden at the Stade de France, 6,000 for the clash with Belgium in Bordeaux and 7,000 for the game with Italians in Lille.
The FAI have said that the application process for the tickets is open to everyone but priority would be given to some.
The statement read: "The application process of issuing tickets for the three Group E games is open to all Republic of Ireland supporters. However, preference will be given to Supporters Clubs, Season Ticket holders, Fans Direct members, and supporters who have accumulated a significant number of points.
"Priority allocation will also be given to supporters from affiliated football leagues and more than 2,000 clubs that fall under their remit, Board and National Council members, Club Ireland members, Jack Charlton Lounge patrons, Sponsors, and players/staff.
"Tickets are only available for application on the UEFA ticketing portal, which will close on Monday, January 18."
"For each Participating National Association at EURO 2016 a total of 2,000 tickets have been awarded by UEFA. The FAI intends to distribute these tickets, once the UEFA ticketing application process is complete, to unsuccessful applicants with a proven match attendance track record, and to the ‘Football Family’. This number is not included in the overall ‘Allocation’ figure, listed above.
"While some countries are allowing UEFA to run a lottery system to sell and distribute their allocations, the FAI, in line with many Participating National Associations, will manage the distribution of tickets in order to ensure that the most loyal Irish supporters are catered for first.
"The FAI is currently reviewing the pilot system that was in use for the last three away games (Gibraltar, Poland and Bosnia & Herzegovina).
"Successful applicants will begin to receive notification from UEFA in February 2016. Unsuccessful applicants notifications will be approximately three weeks after successful applicants as more tickets could become available following the first round of tickets being offered. "
Here is the breakdown of ticket prices for the matches:
