Time is running for fans hoping to land tickets for Euro 2016 in France next year with the initial ballot to close on Friday. Millions of ticket applications have been made. Here's how to make yours.

Football fans hoping to come to France next summer for the Euro 2016 tournament need to act quickly if they want to get tickets.

They have until midnight on Friday July 10th to try to get their hands on a ticket for a match.

Last month Uefa put one million tickets on sale through a general ballot and since then they have been inundated with applications.

The latest figure given by Uefa revealed that over 3.7 million applications had been made for tickets. That figure was on June 20th after the ballot had been open for 10 days.

But for those who haven’t yet applied there’s no need to panic. The tickets will not be dished out on a first come first served basis, but in a ballot.

To apply for tickets you will first need to register an account, which you can do by clicking here.

So all you can do is cross your fingers and hope. 

But there will be another chance to purchase tickets in March/April 2016 when Uefa opens their resale site for fans who want to sell the tickets they have purchased.

No tickets will be sold at the stadiums themselves on the day of the matches.

Around 250,000 tickets will be offered at the €25 price, which will be available in 43 of the 51 matches.

For the quarter-finals, the cheapest price will be €45, then €65 for the semi finals and €85 for the final.

In order to ensure the success of this great festival of European football, we wanted a ticketing policy that was in line with our lofty ambitions for the tournament,” said Euro 2016 SAS president Jacques Lambert.

“We wanted a ticketing procedure that was user-friendly and transparent, in which everyone – no matter where they were in the world – had the same chances of obtaining tickets via a single portal.”
