Now that the application window has closed, each member will be reviewed separately (even if applying as a group). Some may be guaranteed tickets as a result of their caps level. Those who are not guaranteed tickets will be entered into a ballot. If more than one of you in the group is entered into the ballot then every member of the balloted group will either be successful or unsuccessful.
As an example, the only oversubscribed match for the World Cup in Russia was the Belgium game and the caps cut-off to be guaranteed a ticket was 44. This meant that any Travel Club members below 44 caps who applied for tickets would have been entered into the ballot and selected a random.
For more information about tournament ballots, please read our news story here.
In the event that there are enough tickets to a particular match (and providing the category splits allow) to cover the demand from members, then all those who applied will be allocated a ticket. This is assuming that members submit the correct details and are not submitting duplicate applications.
At the time of writing on Wednesday 18 December, we are awaiting the application data from UEFA. Once we have received that, the data will be reviewed for any duplicates, suspended members or non-members. Once the data has been 'cleaned' we will then run a ballot (where required). Top 'cappers' will be allocated their first choice categories. Once the ballot has been conducted the data will be returned to UEFA who will then send application results to lead applicants in January.
Only the lead applicant will receive an email with the outcome of their application. If you're not a lead applicant, you will need to speak with them directly to find out the result of your application.
