But you're right. I shouldn't give them up and enjoy the show regardless. Yes, December is buy through your federation option. Tickets will be scarce and likely expensive.
I've booked my Dublin hotel.. but I'm still hoping for Baku to work out. I got 1 ticket apiece for 2 Baku group matches - which is pretty useless. Wife didn't get any (she had applied for 4 each for the same matches). But she got an email that unsuccessful applicants would get a chance very soon when current successful guys don't pay for allocated tickets before the 18th.

So there's an outside chance we could still do Baku. (Which is also the other venue in Italy's group). Fingers crossed.

Awesome!

I just checked the schedule: https://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro-2020/matches/#/dw/1185

Opener is in Rome, then next group A game in Baku the next day. Again, I am taking a guess but provided Italy qualify it would make sense for them to start at the Olimpico. If they don't, they won't play in Italy until the 17th of June.

What dates did you get tickets for in Baku? Well, one thing's for sure, provided your wife gets tickets, one of us will definitely get to watch Italy.

that's true. My Baku ticket dates are for the 17th and 21st.

<1% chance we might both watch Italy as well. If Italy starts in Rome, then they'll stay on in Rome for the next matchday. So last matchday (21st) for Italy will be Baku.

Alright, so did a bit more digging because you know...

The only way there is a chance Italy play in Baku is if both Italy and Azerbaijan qualify. In that case there would be a draw to determine whether the direct encounter will be played in Baku or Rome. If Azerbaijan don't qualify, Italy should play all three of their games at home, which makes sense. So, when they say a host is guaranteed 2 home games, they don't mean that it's 2 out of 3. Just that they can't say 3 out of 3 until qualifiers are over.

* Looks at Azerbaijan's position in qualifying group *

So, now, if Azerbaijan suddenly don't turn into Brazil 1970, I should be good to go.

Yes, do the Bloom walk.

Just make sure the tickets don't work on an all or nothing basis. I am reading that you have to buy all the allotted ones or you get none of them?
