    Since the tickets for Euros 2015 go on sale this month, I figured a thread of its own might be good.

    Euros 2015 will be held in Stockholm, Sweden at the Ericsson Globe Arena.

    The Euros 2015 site

    Ticket information:

    Tickets go onsale November 26 2013. Swedish residents can pre-book tickets from November 22 at 09:00 CET.

    The prices for All Event tickets are:
    Gold All Event: SEK 4 900
    Silver All Event: SEK 2 800

    + booking fees (they are usually around 100-150 SEK)

    There's an unusually helpful map with the judges side clearly marked on the ticket info site. There will also be some kind of bronze category later on, but due to the design of the Globe Arena I wouldn't recommend those to anyone, as you would be very, very high up.

    The Globe Arena is located in the south of Stockholm, easily reached by tram and subway, the stop is called Globen and is on line 19, although you can easily walk from the previous stop (Gullmarsplan), which line 17 and 18 also pass, along with a lot of busses.

    A friend and I are strongly considering going but I have some other travel planned so I'll have to see how far the $$$ stretches.

    I completely agree with your emoticon. Stockholm is absolutely amazing. Even in the winter.

    I, personally, don't think the prices for the all event tickets are that ridiculous. What will be ridiculous are any drinks people want to buy at bars. I'm a mixed drink person, and when I drink in Sweden, I end up paying about $15-20+ for a simple screwdriver. At least it's not Norway prices, though.

    I'm so looking forward to the event, though. It will be my first Euros, and I can't wait!

    Me three! Luuuuurve Stockholm! Beautiful and exciting city.
    Will definitely be there, but not sure if I'll get all event or single tickets... One of the pros about coming from Norway, is that wherever I travel, things are always cheaper than at home:p

    The tickets are now on sale for Swedish residents. If you choose the electronic ticket option the added administrative surcharge was 45 SEK, so the sum total for my all event gold tickets ended up to be 4945 SEK. They are not using Ticnet/Ticketmaster for the ticket ordering (they are using axs.com), and I got a 404 - page not found at one stage (between picking my seat and paying), but there was a handy little link at the bottom of that frame saying "skip this step" and once I pressed that I got to the payment details site.

    The ticket sales will open up for everyone else on Nov 26 (aka "on Tuesday" ;)).

    How exciting for those living near Stockholm! I am too far (USA) to make it there. I would like to visit Stockholm some day though.

    Just for the record, Norwegian Air flies to Stockholm from US (NYC, LAX, SF, MIA) from 450$ round ticket.

    In other news, I consider going, but paying 750$ to see the "wrong" side of the programs sound like a very bad deal.
    I wonder if there's any way to get the normal tickets too. Or whether sitting in the upper part of the arena is worth it, given that I go from the other side of the continent.

    you can choose the sector and then you get the "best" ticket left in that sector. I was very sad when I bought it in Göteborg, but when I was there and tried the places who were open, I was fine with mine.

    Here is a picture of the sectors. http://ungdomar.se/img/archive/files/82/08/fa_4ec7a4b55a16b633c66e613ee0515918.gif
    Unfortunately I never was there, so I can't say what you should choose
    I have sector A8 row 3

    The upper bowl is leaning a lot and you get quite high up in the upper part of it, but I think it could be alright in the lower rows. It was along time since I was sitting in the upper part but IIRC the hight is about where you enter POPB or perhaps slight lower in the first rows.

    Tickets for singel events are also on sale now: http://http://iof2.idrottonline.se/SvenskaKonstakningsforbundet/EM2015/Tickets/

    If you plan to go to the EC in Stockholm and don't know the arena, avoid the first two rows. I guess they're sold out by now or reserved for VIPs or something but in case not, third row tickets are better. There are rails that disturb the view from the first two rows.

    ITA ! I don't think they even have had the first two rows on sale for Art on Ice, so I hope it's the same for EC.

    Thank you.

    Not as much as I thought, for a good place in all events.
