In an attempt to reward fans for their loyalty, the FAW used a staggered approach to releasing tickets but memberships had to be renewed by 9 June for people to be eligible - irrespective of how long the membership had been held.

Some fans expressed anger at this deadline, many of whom argue were in France at the time, supporting the team in the European Championships.

The FAW now says it has reviewed the policy and removed the membership renewal deadline for the next stage of tickets - which will be available on Wednesday 27 July.
