Euro 2020: Prices for four tickets to final hits £60,000 on tout sites

A ferocious war for tickets for Sunday's Euro 2020 final is already underway among England fans, as Three Lions supporters bid tens of thousands of pounds to clinch seats at Wembley to watch Gareth Southgate's men trounce the Italians in person.

Bidding for tickets for the Italy match has been underway since England's historic victory over Denmark at the Home of Football last night, with groups of three tickets rising from £6,000 in total to £15,000 in the 30 minutes the national heroes celebrated on the pitch.

The scramble for tickets continued through the night, reaching £20,700 this morning as eBay users sell pairs of tickets for between £15,000 and £17,500 - and groups of four seats at Wembley now being sold for £60,000, MailOnline has found.

Government sources have said that a 90,000-capacity crowd at Wembley on Sunday 'cannot be ruled out' now England made Sunday's event - meaning there will be more tickets for the Three Lions' first major tournament final since the 1966 World Cup win. 

England fans have pulled sickies, stayed in bed or were even given the day off today leaving roads deserted and trains empty because of the extraordinary Euro 2020  celebrations up and down the country - from Wembley itself and London's Trafalgar Square to fan zones in Croydon and Manchester.

Trains were delayed into London and Tube lines missing services because of a shortage of staff as millions nursed crippling hangovers and tired heads after partying through the night.

Congestion data from TomTom showed that up to one in five cars were missing during rush hour in many cities when compared to yesterday - with some joking they were 'ringing in sick' this morning and that England's win had put the country back into a temporary one-day lockdown.
