The official ticket resale service, which opened on 24 March, allows fans to sell tickets for matches they can no longer attend at face value, through a secure, transparent and authorised system. The official resale programme will run up to and during the tournament. Any ticket posted and not sold through resale 24 hours prior to a match will remain the property of the selling fan for them to use to attend the match.
