Men's EHF EURO 2024: Additional tickets to become available on 13 September
The Men's EHF EURO 2024 has become a resounding success already months before its throw-off on 10 January. More than 250,000 tickets have already been sold for the first men's European Championship in Germany – and another major batch of tickets will go on sale on Wednesday 13 September at 12:00 CEST.
The new contingents offer tickets for all venues and all competition phases, including even limited amounts for the highly sought-after opening matchday at the MERKUR Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf on 10 January and for Germany’s preliminary round matches in Berlin at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on 14 and 16 January.
World record in Düsseldorf
The Men’s EHF EURO 2014 starts a world-record attempt with more than 50,000 fans being able to watch the opening matches – a sold-out arena would mark the highest attendance ever at a handball match.
The group A encounters France vs North Macedonia at 18:00 hrs followed by Germany vs Switzerland at 20:45 hrs will open the tournament.
