    8% of Icelanders are off to Euro 2016 in France

    Over 8% of the entire Iceland nation will be in France to cheer on the national men’s football team at the UEFA Euro 2016 finals, the first match of which kicks off today.

    Exactly 26,985 Icelanders applied for tickets to Euro 2016 games this month – this works out as 8.15% of the entire population. This is the first time that the men’s team has ever qualified for the UEFA Euro finals.

    Impressive, especially when one considers that there is no train from Iceland to continental Europe.
