There is now a combined total allocation of 32,502 tickets available for Republic of Ireland supporters. More than 275,000 tickets have been applied for, demonstrating just how heavily over-subscribed each fixture is.
UEFA will contact each applicant to inform them of the timeline expected for payments to be taken, while all applicants will be informed of their final status by February 29 at the latest.
The FAI would strongly recommend that supporters check with their bank that there are sufficient funds in their accounts to meet payments. If a supporters agreed to accept tickets in higher categories, pricing will increase accordingly and again supporters should ensure sufficient funds are available
