The FAI have warned supporters of the boys in green that the ticket appeals portal set up for the Euros will close at midnight on Wednesday, February 24.
Many loyal supporters initially missed out on tickets to this summer's European Championships in France when applying through UEFA's portal.

The FAI set up an appeals procedure in response. Applicants who received notifications from UEFA that they were unsuccessful and wish to be added to the official waiting list should forward their notification email from UEFA to firstname.lastname@example.org along with their FAI account number and details of the tickets that they applied for.
The FAI has 2,000 tickets in reserve and intend to use them satisfy the demand from supporters with a proven match attendance record, who have missed out on securing tickets through UEFA.
The same ranking system used during the initial process will be in operation for this batch of tickets, so the most deserving supporters are selected.
Supporters can also avail of the re-sale platform, which will open in March and will be run directly by UEFA. Only registered members of the ticketing portal who attained tickets from the 2015 public portal (June 10 - July 10) are eligible to sell tickets. However, anyone can have access to the re-sale portal once the tickets become available.
The FAI also said they had “made it a priority to free up more tickets for supporters and will remain in contact with UEFA over the coming days and weeks to secure as many tickets as possible for Ireland supporters”.
