We've reached D-Day for Irish fans and their hopes of getting to Euro 2016.
Earlier this week, we were given plenty of reason to worry when the realities of the situation became clear with the messy situation that was presented to Northern Ireland fans. Like the FAI, the IFA had set up a merit system to ensure that the most loyal fans were given preference.
However, there was quite a bit of disappointment and anger when it turned out that fans who had travelled with the team for years had missed out while fans who barely registered on the merit scale were able to secure tickets.
The IFA pointed the finger of blame at UEFA and although a few more tickets were sorted out to smooth out the situation, it was an example of just why there's been so much worry about the situation with tickets for Ireland's three Group E games.
Now that worry is only likely to increase. Yesterday evening the FAI posted a message on their Facebook page confirming that UEFA would begin to start taking payments from successful Irish fans on Friday morning.
So if you're suddenly a couple of hundred euro worse off then congratulations, you're off to France.
All in all, if you applied for tickets, make sure you have the maximum amount of money in your account with respect to the most expensive category of ticket(s) that you applied for.
And while we'd fully encourage you to keep checking your bank balance if, as stated above, no payments are taken out on Friday then don't worry. It's likely to take a few days before Ireland's full allocation is dished out and all the payments have been processed.
