UEFA EURO 2020 is the biggest UEFA European Football Championship ever, with over 3 million tickets available, 82% of which are allocated to all fans. 

The football association (FA) of each qualifying team has its own ticket application conditions for its team's fans, who will be able to apply for tickets for group stage matches or 'Follow my Team' tickets, which allow fans to attend a knockout stage match of their team independently of the location of the match.
