Seeding is done based on results in qualifying.  Spain as of now are likely to be a top seed and if we don't make it then will have 3 home games in Bilbao.
   

Thanks. 

So there are currently 10 groups in the qualifying, and there will only be 6 groups in the finals. So the top 6 teams will be seeded 1, 7-12 teams will be seeded 2 and so on. Correct? 

In that case, it is most likely that no team from our group will be seeded 1st, but possibly two teams will be seeded 2nd. If we manage to be seeded 2nd we will have a good chance of getting out of the group in the finals. A Rof16 in Bilbao anyone? Big smile

Correct and some countries look like they are already nailed on for top seeds eg Spain, England etc who will most likely win their qualifying groups with perfect or almost perfect records.  

Poland may well do the same of course. In theory Northern Ireland could do likewise but I don't think anyone seriously expects them to beat the Dutch and Germans home and away.  Germany may well do it though by beating the Dutch at home and winning in Belfast in September.

I agree it is unlikely our group will produce a top seed.   However it is highly unlikely we will be second seeds even if we qualify directly  We'd need to win the group or come second with a large points total.

I don't see 2nd or 3rd seeds being that different and both give you the chance to draw the League D or League C winner.    

I know quite a few England fans who have already booked their flights to Dublin for the Rof16.  Some have booked onward to Copenhagen just in case they are runners up.  We could be sharing those flights.

We just need to qualify somehow.  It would be awful to host the party and not get to participate.

Assuming we qualify we already know Ireland and Spain would be allocated Group E. If Spain are top seeds and Ireland are for arguments sake second seeds does that mean we will be allocated slots E1 & E2 respectively?
 
If my thinking is correct it would mean both teams play each other on matchday 1 with the venue and time tbc.
 
Have I got that right?
I think Spain would be seeded 1 and Ireland 2, but the draw will decide which team gets E1, E2, E3 and E4. i.e. the draw decides who we play first, second and last, and whether we are at home or away v Spain.

Applied for the final for Cat 2. Saw the demand was super high for it overall (1.3M applicants). I checked the box that said I’d be open to Cat 1 or 3 as well. Would my chances go up if I just applied to Cat 1 outright vs Cat 2 with the option?

doubt it, I’d say they’ll do the cat 2 draw and if not successful you’ll go into cat 1 then. But if Cat1 isn’t oversubscribed you might just get that straight away? Hard to know but can’t see them giving you cheaper tickets and leaving higher unsold if you’ve said you’ll take dearer ones.

I know last time around, the only chance you had of getting tickets in another category was if that category itself was not oversubscribed. So take for example the following situation:

Category 1, 10,000 tickets, 12,000 applicants
Category 2, 12,000 tickets, 12,000 applicants
Category 3, 12,000 tickets, 15,000 applicants
Category 4, 15,000 tickets, 30,000 applicants

Everyone who gets tickets will only get them in the category they applied for. Then take this situation:

Category 1, 10,000 tickets, 12,000 applicants
Category 2, 12,000 tickets, 10,000 applicants
Category 3, 12,000 tickets, 15,000 applicants
Category 4, 15,000 tickets, 30,000 applicants

Everyone who applied for category 2 in the first place will get a ticket, but everyone who applied for category 1 and category 3 who didn't get a ticket (5,000 people) will be entered into a draw for the remaining 2,000 category 2 tickets.

That's definitely how the euro 2016 draw was done. There's no guarantee this will be similar. It could be the case that all applicants for category 1, 2 and 3 will be entered into the category 2 draw, if they have ticked the box, so in the scenario above people who picked category 2 as first preference could miss out. It depends how they do it; it is not clear this time, it was last time.

Always going to be a high amount given how spread out the tournament is.

Fingers crossed we're in it so everyone that applied now isn't stuck with tickets

One of them is mine!
 
So would it be fair to say I'd have more chance of winning the Euromillions than getting a ticket for the final?  Certainly seems like it atm. Cry

You have a far greater chance of getting a ticket for the final than winning the euromillions
