The FAI have released details of the ticketing allocation for Irish fans at the group games of Euro 2016. Ireland's allocation works out at approximately 16% of each stadium capacity.

Here's the breakdown.

Ireland v Sweden

St. Denis

Capacity - 81,338

Irish allocation - 13,000

Ireland v Belgium


Capacity - 42,115


Irish allocation - 6,000

Ireland v Italy


Capacity - 50,186


Irish allocation - 7,000.

42% are intended for the general public, 32% are allocated for the supporters of the participating nations and 12% are preserved for commercial partners.

The remainder are reserved for hospitality (6%), the host city and national authorities (2%), broadcast partners (1%), VIP guests (1%), and a collective entitled 'the football family' (3%).


The remaining 32% are split between the fans of the competing nations.

The FAI statement says that 'preference will be given to Supporters Clubs, Season Ticket holders, Fans Direct members, and supporters who have accumulated a significant number of points.'

Priority allocation will also be given to supporters from affiliated football leagues and more than 2,000 clubs that fall under their remit, Board and National Council members, Club Ireland members, Jack Charlton Lounge patrons, Sponsors, and players/staff.

Tickets are only available for application on the UEFA ticketing portal, which will close on Monday, January 18, 2016.
