UEFA: ticket prices of the European Championship 2016 in France, by stage & seating

During Euro 2016, in France, a central seat for the final between Portugal and France costed 895 euros, compared to only 25 euros for the cheapest seat in a group stage match. Seats behind the goals and at the lowest and highest levels amounted to 25 euros for group matches and round of 16, while for the same games, seats centrally positioned worth 145 euros. As the competition progresses, and as the number of games decreases and the stakes become higher, the prices increased. This major sporting event, mobilized France for one month from June to July 2016 and represented a total economic weight for the country of 2.8 billion euros, including 842 million euros in spectator spending.

How to host and organize an event expected by thousands of European football fans

For this event, France had then committed itself to large projects in order to renovate the country's stadiums, or even to create new ones. For instance, The Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon, also called Groupama Stadium for sponsorship reasons had a construction projected cost of 381 million euros in 2016. This stadium, which held several Euro 2016 games, was inaugurated only a few months before the beginning of the competition

A major economic event for France

The UEFA Euro is not only a major sporting event, it also has an important economic benefit for the host country. Thus, the football competition was expected to bring in nearly 1.3 billion euros in France. For several years now UEFA Euro revenue from commercial rights have been increasing, reaching more than 483 million euros in 2016, compared to 29.3 million for the 1996 Euro in England. The economic impact concerns the country as a whole but also the cities that host the matches of the competition. Located in the suburbs of Paris and home to the Stade de France (where the final took place), the commune of Saint-Denis benefited from a territorial economic impact of 221 million euros.
