In recent days, outstanding performances of the Slovenian national team have sparked a real euphoria in the land on the sunny side of the Alps. One of the indicators that this is the case is the sold-out Stožice Arena for the last round of Euro 2024 qualifiers against Kazakhstan. What started in March will end in November. Or is it? We all believe that this will be just the end that brings a new beginning, a beginning that Slovenians have been dreaming of for well over a decade. And how would the Slovenian fans’ journey to Germany look like in case Matjaz Kek’ s charges officially qualify in a month’s time?
It has been clear for a long time that Euro 2024 will take place in Germany between 14 June and 14 July. 24 teams will compete for the title of the best in the Old Continent at 10 different venues. The host cities are Berlin, Munich, Dortmund, Stuttgart, Gelsenkirchen, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Cologne and Leipzig, where Benjamin Šeško is currently based. So far, Germany, which was directly qualified because it is hosting the European Championships, Belgium, France, England, Austria, Portugal, Scotland, Spain and Turkey are all qualified for the Championships.
Germany is the only host country that has already decided which group it will play in and where it will play its group stage matches. For the remaining teams that have already qualified or will qualify for Euro 2024 in November, the fixtures will be announced on 2 December, when the official group draw will take place.
This raises a key question that many football fans in Slovenia will be interested to know the answer to: when will it be possible to buy tickets? Tickets are on sale now, although it is not known which teams will play on which dates, or only the days and venues where the German team will play. Therefore, the initial sales target mainly Elf and neutral fans. Ticket sales for fans of the remaining teams will therefore start on the day of the official draw, i.e. 2. December.
At the same time, UEFA also has some rules regarding the application for tickets itself, namely that a person can only apply for tickets for one of the matches per day, as the European Football Association does not consider it logistically feasible to watch two matches in one day. A maximum of four tickets can be purchased per person per billing. For accounts where demand exceeds the capacity of the stadium or category, the winners of the ticket purchase rights will be determined by lot.
How much does each ticket cost? Ticket prices depend mainly on the category and stage of the competition. So, for the group stage matches, ticket prices are currently between €30 and €200 per ticket, with intermediate categories priced at €60 and €150 per ticket. While tickets for the final showdown, which will be hosted by Berlin, range between €95 and €1,000 per ticket, the Federation’s website points out that for cheapest Tickets there is a very high level of interest and at the same time a very low probability that an individual fan will receive the right to buy. At the same time, fans also have the option of accepting tickets for the other categories alongside their preferred category tickets, if they are not drawn, to increase their chances of winning.
In short, Germany is not far away, both geographically and currently in football terms, so if the boys qualify for the European Championships, they can expect a roaring support not only at home in Slovenia in front of TV screens and in pubs, but also in stadiums all over Germany.
