Hundreds of thousands of football fans will receive emails today telling them whether they have been successful in applying for tickets for Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.
UEFA has been busy allocating tickets to each of the 14 non-host federations' fans and while the number of england supporters applying for England-only-matches is said to be less than the official supply, it is reported that around 12,000 Irish fans have applied for each of their group matches where their official allocation is just 6,000 tickets.
UEFA.com says that it recieved more than 12 million ticket applications when Euro 2012 tickets first went on sale in March 2011
