Fans will receive 82 per cent of the tickets available for matches at Euro 2020, UEFA has announced.

The governing body has revealed the details for next year's competition, which will see 24 teams playing in 12 countries across the continent.

UEFA confirmed that 2.5 million tickets have been reserved for supporters of participating nations and the general public, more than the total number available for Euro 2016, which was staged in France.

Across the 44 matches, 1m tickets will be available for EUR 50 or less and 40,000 supporters will pay fewer than EUR 100 to attend the semifinals and final at Wembley. In the first sales window, which opens for a month on June 12, 1.5m tickets will be available to the general public.
