There has been huge demand for Euro 2020 tickets

Ticket requests for Euro 2020 have reached unprecedented levels ahead of the first Europe-wide championships this summer.

There have been over 28 million requests for the 2.5 million tickets available for the 60th anniversary event across the 12 host countries, double the amount for Euro 2016.

In particular, during the sales phase in December, almost nine million requests were received, over three times more than during the same period ahead of Euro 2016.

The highest demand has been for the final at Wembley on July 12, which has attracted more than 714,000 ticket requests, eight times the stadium's capacity.

The high-profile group stage game between Germany and France at the 75,000-capacity Allianz Arena in Munich on June 16 has received 710,000 applications.
