To guarantee fans are given every possible chance to secure tickets, those who are unsuccessful in their application in the July 2019 lottery phase will automatically be entered into the ‘Fans First’ programme. These fans will be the first to be informed about new UEFA EURO 2020 ticket availability (resulting from unsuccessful payments and ticket returns). Supporters in the ‘Fans First’ group will get an exclusive priority period to purchase such tickets.
A record three million tickets will be available to fans, meaning that more supporters than ever will get the chance to ‘LIVE IT. FOR REAL’ – a slogan designed to inspire and encourage fans to experience matches live at the stadium. Almost 2.5 million tickets – more than the total number available for the whole of UEFA EURO 2016 – have been reserved for fans of the participating teams and the general public.
Votes are read out, via satellite link, by a national celebrity in each of the countries that entered the contest, so we get a whistlestop tour of over 40 European capital cities. “Hello Tel Aviv!” they’ll all shout, before milking their fifteen seconds in the spotlight and desperately trying to keep it together despite an excruciating delay in the video link.

Mike Johns, one of three Republican primary winners who defeated incumbents earlier this month largely on a platform of heightened fiscal accountability, said Mayor Andy Cook’s administration and the redevelopment commission was “hiding everything” by using the TIF money and said people are losing faith with the current City Council and the mayor’s spending habits.
Run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. The latest developments surrounding Syria call this very common proverb to mind. Although credible diplomatic gains were achieved last year with the contributions of Turkey, Russia and the U.S. to put an end to the humanitarian crisis and find sustainable political solutions for the overdue conflict, the exit door still looks blurry. According to the generally accepted view, in this blurry picture of Syria major roles belong to Washington and Moscow. Yet, the actors on the scene seem to adopt the following tactic: Run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. Their reluctant stance can be illustrated within an example, where both have embraced a vague and contradictory stance, up to now, in order to fully implement the Manbij and Idlib road maps in Syria to end the Assad regime and PKK-affiliated groups’ brutal actions.
Arsenal and Chelsea did their bit to ensure that England has four representatives in the finals of Europe’s two top club competitions this campaign, though the latter made far harder work of their semi-final tie against Eintracht Frankfurt than Unai Emery’s men did against La Liga club Valencia .
