Caution: If you didn't get a ticket from the official shop of the UEFA, ECC Austria strongly advises against buying it from another seller. Major events like the EURO usually attract fraudful traders who sell faked, overpriced or invalid tickets. The risk that you can't enter the stadium with one of those tickets is very high. ECC Austria therefore suggests that you enjoy the games relaxed at one of the many public viewing areas than expose yourself to such troubles.
