UEFA has confirmed today that this summer's UEFA EURO 2020 will be postponed until 11 June 2021 as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The health of all those involved in the game is the priority, as well as to avoid placing any unnecessary pressure on national public services involved in staging matches. The move will help all domestic competitions, currently on hold due to the COVID-19 emergency, to be completed.
All UEFA competitions and matches (including friendlies) for clubs and national teams for both men and women have been put on hold until further notice. The UEFA EURO 2020 Play Off matches and international friendlies, scheduled for the end of March, will now be played in the international window at the start of June, subject to a review of the situation.
EURO 2020 - New dates
Friday 11 June 2021 - Sunday 11 July 2021
What does this mean for ticket holders?
Tickets for the tournament will still be valid in 2021. This means that if you've purchased tickets via the England Supporters Travel Club, these will still be valid for next summer and will permit entry into the stadium
However, UEFA has advised this afternoon, if any supporters cannot attend the tournament in 2021, the face value of their tickets will be refunded in full. Please wait for further information from UEFA and the England Supporters Travel Club team on the refund process and amended schedule.
UEFA will be contacting all lead applicants within the next month with further details regarding the tickets they have secured.
A separate update will be made regarding those Travel Club members who are in the second ballot submitted to UEFA in February.
What does this mean for the Travel Club membership?
As EURO 2020 will now take place in the next membership cycle - 2020-2022 which will include the FIFA World Cup in Qatar - the England Supporters Travel Club team will confirm what the process will be for members in the next few weeks. All further updates will be made via the England Supporters Club website, forum and Facebook group.
In the meantime, the ESTC sale for England v Romania tickets has been cancelled, therefore there will be no ticket sales.
Until advised otherwise by the UK Government, the England Supporters Club office will remain closed. If you need to contact the team, you can still do so via email to email@example.com. To assist staff, please ensure you provide your FAN number in all correspondence.
