RG30 Unfortunately for me my two matches I hold a ticket for are in the Wembley 25% bracket (England Czech Republic & R16). Will still keep them and go in the ballot again.


Me too
For all 3 England games

Doing the same and hoping to get at least one of the 3

Also got semi and final IF England are there. May not be an issue!

I haven't read through all of this yet but the main point is that everyone will be refunded and a new ballot will take place.
Based on the 70/20/10 rule

Somebody else must have some tickets and be concerned?!

I can't be the only one (no longer) going!

It’s pathetic.This was allegedly a tournament for smaller countries to host. All that it has done for one of the smallest countries in Wales is given us a ridiculous journey to Azerbaijan as well as a game in Rome.

I've got tickets for the Czech Rep game and semi-final, but got them through the original UEFA ballot, rather than England supporter's club.

Doesn't make any difference tho does it? I got mine that way too but everyone is getting refunded and hoping to get something from the new ballot.

I assumed the 70/20/10 rule only applied to supporter's club tickets, but then again I don't actually know what that is. Other than that you're right, all back in the ballot. Will be pretty gutted if we miss out after waiting two years for it.

Exactly. expecting to be gutted tbh
The 70/20/10 rule is something that benefits those with the most "caps" which in my case is bugger all!

England ballot results are out today.
This is quite a depressing read

We can confirm that your results are:

England v Croatia

UNSUCCESSFUL

England v Scotland

UNSUCCESSFUL

Czech Republic v England

UNSUCCESSFUL


And I don't understand how this has been done as it only adds up to around 3000 tickets per game

Oh well. It’s annoying for you especially being out of pocket. The communication of all of this has left a lot to be desired.

These things happen. When we went to Cardiff for the ODI England v South Africa it was barely raining for two hours but the umpires refused to start the game. Then it started raining heavily so by 1:30pm I said to my lads that we might as well go home. En route home and having just crossed over the Severn Bridge we heard on the radio play was about to start in Cardiff. So we turned around and went back over the Bridge for the second time that day and headed back to Cardiff. Before we even got there they were off for more rain and didn’t get back on again.

So my day off involved a lot of waiting at the ground, driving, paying the toll twice, parking, petrol etc and we didn’t see a single ball. Got refunded 90% of the tickets but still out of pocket for around £100.

Mate. It’s how it goes sometimes.

Yeh I know and I've had so many experiences like that with cricket I can't remember them all. You kind of expect it.

This is quite a bit different imo and of course they had to do something but having put all the effort in to get the tickets and spent thousands of pounds it's gutting to get nothing.

I don't want sympathy and these things do happen but it's still oxf*rd annoying.

Will you get a refund on flights, hotels etc? Or will you still go to the venues? ‘‘This should have been handled a lot better.
