UEFA will net up to £25million thanks to England’s march to the Euro 2020 final.

Gareth Southgate’s men will be backed by a huge crowd at Wembley on Sunday, as they were against Denmark on Wednesday.

There were concerns that an early exit for England would hit attendances for the semi-finals and final, which all take place under the arch.

UEFA has been raking in the ticket sale money after England surged to the final of Euro 2020

For the semi-finals, most tickets cost £501 and £296. For the final, it is £810 and £510. 

If added interest because of England’s progress has led to sales of an additional 30,000 (15,000 per game) tickets, that would mean close to £16m more in UEFA’s coffers at a time when their reserves have been decimated by the pandemic. 

Once corporate packages and matchday revenue are taken into account, the figure could be as high as £25m.

Meanwhile, Hungary have been ordered to play their next three matches behind closed doors after racist and homophobic abuse by fans during Euro 2020 matches.
