SUPPORTERS who have purchased EURO 2020 tickets have just 12 days to apply for a refund – or will not be able to claim money back even if match venues are changed.
The postponed tournament is meant to take place throughout Europe this season, with Glasgow one of the host venues. But the worsening coronavirus pandemic means that the multi-city format has been thrown into doubt.

A change to the UEFA ticket policy today states that supporters have until January 26 to apply for a refund – despite the fact it is not yet clear whether the fixtures which fans have purchased tickets for will be fulfilled at the intended venues.
Once that deadline passes no refunds will be offered to fans who are unable to attend matches moved to other stadia.
In December, the governing body re-affirmed that they intend to fulfil their multi-city plan for the major finals. However, the footballing landscape has changed significantly since the end of 2020.
Matches are set to be played in London, Budapest, Glasgow, Dublin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Munich, Rome, St Petersburg, Bilbao, Baku, and Bucharest.
As reported by the Athletic, UEFA’s ticket refund policy now says if a match is postponed before kick-off for “a reason of Force Majeure” the ticket will be valid for the rearranged fixture but not a refund.

UEFA define “Force Majeure” as “any event affecting Euro 2020 arising from or attributable to acts, events, omissions or accidents which are beyond the reasonable control of UEFA and/or the relevant host association” which includes the pandemic.
