UEFA has confirmed that tickets for next summer's European Championships will go on sale on Monday morning at 11am.

The draw for the group stages will took place tonight in Paris and it seems Ireland will be heading to Paris, Bordeaux and Lilles to face Sweden, Belgium and Italy.

Fans will be able to apply through UEFA's portal system for five weeks, with the closing date for applications January 18th.

Tickets will be offered in four categories, starting at €25 to €145 for the group matches.

However, prices for the opening game involving hosts France are higher, going from €75 to €595.

Tickets for the round of 16 matches are the same as the group stages.

Quarter-final prices are between €45 and €195, while semi-final tickets range from €65 to €495.

Tickets for the final will cost fans between €85 and €895.

Each application will be limited to four tickets per match, while Follow My Team ticket packages, only available in categories one and three, and accessibility tickets – priced at category four level – will also be offered for sale.

Successful applicants will begin to receive notification from Uefa in February.

Unsuccessful applicants will find out a further three weeks later than successful applicants, as more tickets could become available following the first round offer and be reallocated.
