UEFA EURO 2020
I received this reply today from the Fan ID centre:
If you have Follow My Team tickets (conditional tickets) for the UEFA EURO 2020тм quarter-final match, which will be held at the Saint Petersburg stadium (Russian Federation) on 3 July 2020, you will be able to apply for a FAN ID during the round of 16, only after receiving a notification from UEFA that your team has qualified for the next round of the tournament and your ticket(s) has(have) become valid.
The foreign citizens who hold tickets that have become valid and use their FAN IDs to enter the Russian Federation without a visa will be able to enter and leave the Russian Federation using their FAN ID electronic forms and identity documents recognised as such by the Russian Federation (Passport).
The PDF file with personal data and a photo of the spectator sent to the email specified by the spectator when applying for the FAN ID serves as the confirmation of the FAN ID electronic form. The PDF file must be printed on A4 paper and carried with you when traveling to Russia.
The FAN ID electronic form is designed only for visa-free entry into and exit from Russia and does not grant access to the stadium. To access the stadium, you must obtain a FAN ID on a laminated card. During the UEFA EURO 2020тм matches, a sufficient number of the FAN ID Distribution Centres will be operating, including near the Saint Petersburg stadium, where you can quickly get your FAN ID.
Entry to the Russian Federation using the FAN ID and the identity document recognised as such by the Russian Federation (Passport) is possible from 00:00 on 30 May 2020 to 23:59 on 3 July 2020 (local time of arrival in Russia).
Departure from the Russian Federation is possible from 00:00 hours on 30 May 2020 to 23:59 on 13 July 2020 (local time of departure from Russia).

In reply to Kerry Gillen:
Kerry GillenSurely you can overcome this by selecting Save as then renaming it to say David2020 ? Then when you go to properties the creation date will be today? I don't think for a minute that they will check to that extent though
I don't think they will check either. But, out of curiosity, I tried your idea.
There doesn't seem to be a 'Save As' option for jpg files. So I made a copy of my picture, re-named the copy, re-cropped it so that it was not identical to the original, and saved the re-cropped version. The file properties still said that it was created in March 2018.
In reply to David Lilley:
This is the latest information from UEFA for fans who hold a conditional quarter final ticket.
After your team has qualified for the St Petersburg quarter final, you will receive an email from UEFA advising you of the need to apply for a Fan-ID and encouraging you to do so as soon as possible. The message from UEFA is "do not apply for the Fan-ID until you have received this email from UEFA".
David LilleyThe message from UEFA is "do not apply for the Fan-ID until you have received this email from UEFA".
Thinking about it further, if you enter your UEFA.com ticket account and see that the status of your QF ticket has been updated to Match 45 in St Petersburg on 3rd July then you can apply for your Fan-ID. The email from UEFA is for people who do not know how to check the status of their ticket.
