UEFA EURO 2020
Does anyone know what the approximate allocation is going to be for England's group matches at Wembley?Assuming we qualify we will play all 3 group games at Wembley (we'll play Scotland at Wembley if they qualify via playoffs due to their lower ranking). For Euro 2016 the 3 group games were allocated as follows:Marseille v Russia 11,000; Lens v Wales 5,000; for Saint Etienne v Slovakia 6,000. Which amounts to 16%, 13%, and 14% of stadium capacity respectively.Given Wembley's 90,000 capacity and an approximate allocation of 14.5% that would translate to around 13,000 tickets for Travel Club Members. At present that would mean all members with at least 1 cap would get a ticket (notwithstanding the 4 caps from our last 2 qualifiers).Does that seem about right? Anyone know of any info that would counter this? Cheers

According to the UEFA ticketing brochure for Euro 2020, over the whole tournament 32% of the tickets will be set aside for the participating national associations. This doesn't necessarily mean that each team will get exactly 16% of the stadium for each match : it's likely to be higher for the group matches and lower for the knock out rounds. There might also be some adjustments in favour of the teams with the larger fan base.
The brochure also says that 1% of the tickets will be allocated to the UEFA football family. This would imply that tickets for the FA football family would have to come out of their 16% allocation as a participating national association.
Before the 2016 tournament, the FA issued a set of FAQs. In that document, they said that the FA football family had been granted 1000 tickets per match in addition to the number of tickets which were published as available to fans. So the figures
11,000 v Russia5,000 v Wales6,000 v Slovakia
were what the fans actually got.
