The biggest global football competition not named the World Cup happens next summer, and based on the teams that have already qualified, it's going to be a doozie. While the Euro tournament doesn't quite have the luster of Cup, which pulls from a global pool, the level of soccer is just as high: The worst-ranking Euro team in 2016, Iceland, made a deep run and knocked off the much-higher-ranked England. Iceland, before Euro 2016, was ranked number 35 in FIFA; the worst participant in the 2018 World Cup, Russia, ranked 70.
The first ticket window for Euro 2020 happened earlier this year, and even if you had entered, the odds were not in your favor—19.3 million applied for tickets, according to UEFA. But the next window arrives in December, and there will be opportunities in March/April 2020. So how do you attack?
