    Almost always the "Home" team on the left side of the stadium and the "Away" team on the right side of the stadium..

    Hahaha, technically yes xD

    But what I meant is Left and Right side from a telecasting point of view.
    So the "Home" team fans will be left side of the view which we generally get on the TV from the halfway line and "Away" team on the right side.

    Match 1 - Germany fans on the left side of the screen, Scotland on the right
    Match 2 - Hungarians on the left, Swiss on the right
    Match 3 - Spaniards on the left, Croatians on the right

    And so on..

    I know this is not related to Euro 2024 but my host city will be hosting 6 world cup 2026 games. I am super happy right now :)

    The only stadiums that are not hosting at least 6 are those in Mexico.

    I'm not a mod but there's a thread specific for the 2026 WC - let's keep this thread for Euro ticket discussions

    Why would someone try to sell it on official resale platform with no profit rather than third party market for a profit for high demand games?

    Maybe they don't want to chisel other fans?

    A mixture of feeling safer doing it via the official platform and having a very basic sense of decency, I'd imagine.

    The way I see it: I’ve done nothing special to get those tickets, I was just luckier than others in two lotteries. So I’ve done nothing to deserve benefitting from inflated prices. I also don’t want to support a system that leads to whoever can spend most money gets to watch a game live. Even UEFA, an organization that’s all about money, has acknowledged this by offering things like Fans First tickets, even though they could probably fill stadiums to many games by selling no ticket for less than €500 or whatever. But stadiums shouldn’t be filled with millionaires but also be affordable to “normal” people. If you sell tickets making profit, you contribute to the former.

    Well maybe because it’s easier? And also because you can not expect to find tickets that you want on the platform if you decide to sell your for profit. Personally there is 99% chance that I will sell 2 of my Italy vs Spain tickets on the platform because I have 0 interest to make profit

    That’s my hope, but I don’t think some people applied for high demand games just because they wanted to attend but to make profit and gouge the prices.

    Exactly, that’s why nobody should give in to buy games at inflated prices! If there was no market for that, people wouldn’t apply for tickets just to make profit.

    I agree with that because that is the thing kills the spirit of the game. These kind of events must be accessible to anyone that wants to attend.

    That’s the reason that keeps me from buying the third party tickets at highly inflated prices. But there is always people with more money so they can buy at those high prices because it’s free market. The thing that upsets me is that they are making money from a product that they put no effort in. I get it if it was your merch or product that you produced or designed, then you have every right to put any price tag on it, but this is just profiteering.

    Given the amount of scammers on social media it will be very difficult to sell a ticket there to people you don't know. Most genuine fans would never tout a ticket so just as easy to put it back on the resale platform.

    Sponsors, other national football federations etc will all return tickets that will end up on the portal.

    If buying a ticket at least make sure you see the invoice and do a video call with the person.

    My two cents here is quite easy. I dont do apply for tickets for earning money. I do it for the passion of football. For the opportunity to travel the world both alone and with my son and see the great game we all love.

    If I for some reason get tickets to a game which I will not attend, I could either try to swap it for the games I want more, or give it up for resale so others can pick it up at a fair price.

    Of course there is touts out there, that do this for a living. But for me the journey is almost as important as the travel them selves. All the waiting, the chitchats, the hopefulness, the highs and the lows with other people just at eager as yourself. Always wanting to share info, good tips and hoping the best for each other. In a kind of cruel world that actually means a lot.

    The least thing I could do back, is to give someone else the opportunity to get tickets for a fair price if I shall not have them my self. Karma ❤️

    Doing a tweet, fielding enquiries, sorting out money transfer etc is time consuming and people can't be bothered. Would rather whack it on the official platform where their card is just refunded automatically when it sells.

    There will be supply...the level of demand is the potentially worrying part.

    At a minimum. That being said the golden rule of the WC2022 and priors still apply - paypal business is the way to go.

    At least that's what I tell everyone trying to join the EURO WA chat group, all looking desperately for tickets at this stage. Because its not realistic to meet in person for this usually (which would be even better.)

    For those unsure what to do:

    - If you care about money, you are likely not buying from touts or unofficial resale channels such as WA chat groups.

    - If you care about time, you are likely not buying from the portal, unless its a match that is fairly easy to get.

    There are loads of scammers out there. Poeple asking for San Marino v Andorra or Earth v Uranus get offered tickets.

    A video call at a minimum to make sure they are the person in the profile photo. See the invoice match the name although could be a partner etc.

    Genuine question: why is PayPal the way to go? I always thought that’s what scammers use. If I transfer to a real bank account at least I know the bank ran their KYC procedures on the person. What am I missing?

    Paypal gives a guarantee to the buyer if something goes wrong or you are dealing with a scammer. You get your money back. I got scammed when I wired money once so I do use Paypal. The key part here is that PayPal charges a fee for the service/guarantee. You can choose the family and friends option and there would be no fee! However, when you do that you lose the protection. A good sign of a scammer is if they ask you use the friends and family option or they only accept bank transfers. Ive learn't, the hard way, never to wire money.

    I will be going to Germany this summer and I'm looking to swap a game or two. I'm looking for someone to swap/trade two semi final tickets in Dortmund for two semi final tickets in Munich. I have 4 Cat 3's for Dortmund. Anyone interested let me know? We won't be getting the tickets until May at the earliest but Iike to nail something down earlier. We will be staying in Cologne and Munich for can always meet up. Thanks Ian

    Many thanks, that’s very helpful. I didn’t actually know about the guarantee. Makes perfect sense now!!
