Northern Ireland fans will benefit from an extra 4,058 tickets for Euro 2016, it has been confirmed.

The additional allocation brings the total number of tickets available for Northern Ireland’s three group fixtures in the tournament in France this summer to more than 29,000.

The Irish Football Association received in excess of 50,000 ticket applications for Northern Ireland’s matches at the tournament.

An initial allocation of 25,000 tickets has been increased to 29,058 for the games against Germany, Poland and Ukraine.

An extra 1,726 fans will be able to attend the Ukraine game on June 16, while 816 additional tickets will be provided for the clash with Poland beforehand on June 12.

For the Germany game on June 21, the allocation has increased from 8,000 to 9,516.

Northern Ireland fans will learn by the end of February whether or not their applications for tickets have been successful.

Priority will be given to those supporters who attended games during the Euro 2016 qualifying phase.
