England fans charged £12 more to print Euro 2020 ticket – as they’re ‘souvenirs’

Euro football chiefs are being ­accused of fouling fans by ­demanding extra for printing match tickets.

Supporters are already shelling out between £42 and £156 to watch England in their three group stage games.

The tickets for the June ties are being sent electronically, via a mobile phone app, but fans will be stung for €15 (£12.73) more for a printed ticket.

They are marketed as souvenir tickets and will not arrive until after the ­tournament finishes on July 12.

Matthew Laidlow tweeted: “Ticket for Euro 2020 cost €50. UEFA wanting €15 for an actual paper ticket.”

Another user calling themselves SmileySmile wrote: “A post-match ‘Souvenir Ticket’ can be purchased for an additional €15. This isn’t a rip-off it’s ­blatant exploitation of football fans.”

An advert on UEFA’s website says: “Fans with mobile tickets who would like a souvenir of the match have the option of requesting souvenir tickets for an ­additional fee of €15.

“Souvenir tickets will be delivered to the address provided in your ticket ­application after the end of the tournament.

A souvenir ticket will not give you access to the stadium; only the mobile ticket can be used for that purpose.”

Despite ordinary tickets for Euro 2020 selling out, VIP hospitality seats were still available last night – at a huge mark-up.

Platinum package slots for group games at Wembley are £2,840 per person.

Should England, captained by Harry Kane, make the July 12 final, the cost of these tickets will soar.

The prestige platinum experience will be £19,873 per person, with £13,706 for the gold, £10,622 for the silver and £7,966 for a 2020 club deal.
