With the play-offs to decide the final four teams in the European Championship now provisionally slated for June, the final 24 teams could be confirmed by the summer depending on how quickly covid-19 can be controlled.
Here is how fans can obtain a refund for their tickets, should they not be able to attend the tournament across 12 cities from 12 June to 12 July 2020.
