Thousands of England supporters will hope to purchase tickets in time for what will be a
historic semi-final at Wembley after the emphatic defeat of Ukraine in Rome on Saturday
evening. There have initially been 8,500 tickets set aside for England supporters while 5,000
have been allocated for the Danish.
However, for supporters based overseas looking to travel to the UK, arriving in London for
the match is a slightly more complex proposition to overcome. The latest guidelines have
been announced by the Government to help oversee a return to large crowds with Wembley
Stadium’s capacity expected to reach 60,000 for the semi-finals and final.
The announcement issued a timely reminder for those supporters considering traveling by
plane, train or bus into the country. Foreign-based football supporters will have to adhere to
strict measures with public health and safety an absolute priority in the conclusion of what
has been a very successful tournament until now.
UK border policy
Most of the 60,000 ticket ticket holders are based domestically but there are foreign-based
supporters travelling from the Common Travel Area (CTA) and a small minority were
successful in UEFA’s initial ballot and are due to travel from outside of the CTA.
Supporters wishing to travel to the UK to watch any of the matches should only do so if they
have a ticket and are not in a red list country.
Supporters travelling from an amber list country will have arrived in the UK and already
quarantined for 10 days before the match which includes 5 full days with test-and-release.
A Passenger Locator Form also needs to be completed before travelling to the UK which will
