UEFA president Michel Platini officially opened ticket sales for the 2016 European Championships in Paris on Wednesday.

The tournament, which will kick on June 10 at the Stade de France, will see 24 teams rather than 16 battle it out in the finals, following a UEFA Congress vote in 2009.

The 59-year-old, who went into football administration after a glittering career as a player and coach, is tipped as a possible candidate to succeed his former mentor Sepp Blatter, who announced last week he would step down as FIFA president.
