UEFA Could Set Ticket Request Record For Euro 2024

  • Ticket demand for European tournament pacing at record-setting levels
  • Requests for final match exceed Berlin stadium capacity by factor of 33
Champions-League
UEFA

UEFA is seeing massive fan demand for tickets to Euro 2024 — and could ultimately set an organizational record.

The governing body said it has received more than 20 million ticket requests during the first sales window to the upcoming event, set for June 14-July 14, 2024, in Germany. That pool is vying for more than 1.2 million tickets made available. 

Another sales window will begin in December, when another 1 million tickets will be released to fans of the 21 qualified nations to the tournament, followed by another set of tickets held back for fans of those national teams that qualify for Euro 2024 through playoffs set for March. 

Unsurprisingly, Germany represented the largest source of ticket requests, representing 65% of all ticket applications, followed by England, France, Spain, and Austria. The U.S. provided the most non-European ticket requests.

UEFA received 2.3 million ticket requests for the Euro 2024 final match set for Berlin’s Olympiastadion — a sum 33 times the stadium’s capacity.

Historical Lift

The initial ticket request numbers comparably favorably to results seen for UEFA 2020 prior to the onset of the pandemic. UEFA initially received 19.3 million ticket applications during the general public sales window, then another 9 million applications after the pool of qualifying teams was determined.

That unique event, featuring 11 different host countries, was ultimately played in 2021 after a yearlong postponement and with a range of limited stadium capacities.
