Important information for all spectators of UEFA EURO 2020™ matches in Saint Petersburg

A FAN ID is a mandatory document for all spectators of UEFA EURO 2020™ matches in Saint Petersburg (Russian Federation), it and a ticket are required to access the stadium and it is used to enter and leave Russia. Foreign spectators can leave Russia multiple times using their FAN IDs and identity documents, that are recognized as such by the Russian Federation (Passport) during the period starting 14 days before the first UEFA EURO 2020™ match in Saint Petersburg and ending 10 days after the date of the last UEFA EURO 2020™ match in Saint Petersburg, i.e. from 00:00 on 29 May 2021 to 23:59 on 12 July 2021 (local Russian time). 

IMPORTANT! Foreign spectators will be able to leave the Russian Federation after the border authorities confirm that the foreign spectators have entered the Russian Federation using their FAN IDs. 

We draw your attention that due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has decided to postpone the UEFA EURO 2020™ matches by a year. The previously issued FAN IDs aren't valid for attending UEFA EURO 2020™️ matches, as well as for entering and leaving the Russian Federation in 2021. All spectators who have applied for a FAN ID before 1 October 2020 and plan to attend UEFA EURO 2020™️ matches in Saint Petersburg in 2021 need to obtain an updated FAN ID. You could confirm the details for obtaining an updated FAN ID until 31 December 2020. If you haven't done this or you haven't applied for a FAN ID yet, go to the Registration page or contact a FAN ID Distribution Centre.
