How to get Euro 2020 Final tickets and will Wembley capacity be increased?
There has been plenty of rumours swirling that England could open up Wembley to full capacity for the Euro 2020 final.
Will Wembley capacity be upped?
Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett says that Boris Johnson and the UK Government will not permit Wembley to be full for the historic occasion.
60,000 lucky spectators were at Wembley last night as England beat Denmark 2-1 in the semi-final.
And it is claimed that the same number will be permitted to watch the final pitch side, as per the original plans.
“There’s some reports out there that it might be up to 90,000 allowed into Wembley for the final,” he said.
“My understanding is that is not going to be the case as things stand.
“The government and the digital, culture, media and sport select committee are not trying to extend that so we’ll have 60,000 fans in for the final.”
The UK Government has permitted Wimbledon to open its gates to full capacity since the quarter-final, which raised hopes that the same could be done for the Euro 2020 final.
All those in attendance at Wembley on Sunday will have to show proof of a negative lateral flow test to get into the stadium.
How to get tickets?
UEFA have released small batches on tickets on general sale via their official ticketing portal leading up to games – right up until hours before kick-off – but demand is sure to be high, so any supporters will have to be on full alert to grab one.
Some tickets will also be sold through the England Official Supporters club and to Italian fans based in England.
Tickets are also re-selling on some websites at a huge premium, most tickets are costing over £3,000 – which is more than 10 times face value.
How did England get there?
England progressed to the final in dramatic circumstances last night, with Harry Kane netting in extra-time to seal a 2-1 victory.
Kane’s initial spot kick was missed, but he scored the rebound to put England into a major tournament final for the first time since 1966.
