PARIS: Organisers of the 2016 European football championship in France have announced that the cheapest ticket for the grand event will be sold at 25 euros.

Around 250,000 tickets will be sold at the cheapest price, with the most expensive seat costing 895 euros (about $1,000) for the July 10, 2016 final at the Stade de France in Paris, reports Xinhua.

"We have set a starting price of 25 euros for 43 of the 51 matches at the finals," Jacques Lambert, chairman of the Euro 2016 organising committee, said on Tuesday.

"With this starting price, we want to see all of society's groups in the stadiums."

One million tickets will be attributed in a computerised lottery after the application stage starting next month on the 10th and to be closed on July 10, as there is no first-come, first-served policy.

An extra 800,000 tickets will be sold to supporters of qualified teams after the tournament draw in December, and the UEFA will give away 20,000 seats to poor children in France.

No tickets will be sold at stadiums during the tournament slated for June 10-July 10, 2016.

Fans, being allowed to apply for up to four tickets per game, are highly recommended to register for an account with UEFA ahead of the application stage. 

In a bid to limit black market trading, organisers will also set up a resale platform where tickets will be sold at face value.
