It is still early to worry, but as we begin to know the first qualified for the next Euro, by what date this collection will come out, knowing that we will know the 24 countries that will make this competition that end of March 2020 with the dams.

This is a valid question. Usually the Panini euro cup album comes out for sale around mid april. Panini will have very short time to print the album, the stickers and to distribute them on the market place.

Just hope Panini won't have the unfortunate idea as topps. Put by alphabetical order the teams and the remaining 4 in end with just blank spaces...

I don't tink so, because we will know the groups at the end of the month, until march, Panini have the time to print the album with the teams in the good order. An option, it's to make the same thing like the album of the tour de France 2019, panini will sell extra stickers with the 4 teams will be qualify in march.

As I said for other collections, I prefer a delayed but complete and well paged release, than a messy one like Topps' Champions League.

Almost certain Panini will not delay the collection. A complete 24-team album will not be on sale until May and by then, Panini has already lost valuable time.

Of course it'll not be a half-assed set, Panini certainly will make the album by groups, like always, and won't do those Topps blank pages (right Panini? RIGHT?!). What they might do is the usual update set, but including the four remaining teams. Maybe two update sets, first with the four teams in May, second in late June with the player replacements.

Well, I just saw now that the draw will take place on the 30th November (did not know that!). So that change a bit, to not say a lot!

I know that PANINI always made its Eurocup albums by group order and never did it in alphabetical order. I am sure they will maintain that order because it is more enjoyable.

Regarding the draw of the groups, on the one hand, unfortunately it is the first time that we do not know all the classified teams and this is something new for PANINI.
But on the other hand, we already know that for this edition we will not have much emotion than usual.

- We already know the series heads.
- We already know the group of the heads of series.
- Some selections of bass drum 2 and 3 already have their group defined.
- The winner of the league C play off enters group D
- The winner of the league B play off enters group E
- If the winner of the league A play off is Romania, enter group C
- If the winner of the league A play off is Hungary, enter group F
- The winner of the League D play off can enter group A - B - C - F

So, after the draw, PANINI can start working on this album and I hope they can release this collection with the 24 selections available at the same time and, as soon as possible, it is complicated but it will be worth it.

I have no problem with the update stickers and with the extra stickers (Coca Cola, Mc Donald’s, etc.) but what I do not want and would not like, is that PANINI makes two versions of this album. Lately, PANINI is getting used to launching its collections in two versions, remember the 2018 World Cup album of Russia, there is a version of 670 stickers and another of 682 stickers and the same goes for the last two editions of the FIFA 365 album. Please PANINI do not do that, I do not like that idea, make a single version for everyone.

All I want from Panini is for them to use the UPDATED Euro 2020 kits for all of the teams. Last WC half the teams in the album were with the updated shirts, half with the qualifiers shirts. France who won the WC were not updated.

Well, that's what everybody wants. Panini doesnt wait for the national teams kits release. As you said half of the teams were with kits updated (mostly Adidas and puma), because precisely they release the kits 8 months before the competition. In the other hand Nike and other manufactures release the kits by February/March. By the time the panini album is more than ready to be launched.

I hope this year they make the nike kits, because of the delay of play offs. Maybe this album will be released in May because of the play offs and this gives them time to update the nike kits.

I can't find it either. Only the question about the euro album is in the topic of 19/11. But I read it a couple of weeks ago, 100% sure.

The ideal is to have a complete & updated (in terms of kits and stats) collection in may rather than a 60% album in april

Again guys, I don't want to be pessimistic, but I'm not seeing Panini waiting till May... If you have a business model where these major competitions collections goes on sale even in February (Adrenalyn), a sudden change of 2/3 months will affect your profits a lot!

Let's see: why Panini should wait for everything? "Oh, let's wait for kits! Oh, let's wait also for the four teams! Oh, why not wait too for the full squads to be known!" And then we would have an album just in mid-June, when basically most are already into the competition.

Panini business can't wait, sorry to say. Like all of you, I don't mind waiting till late April or early May for the full album with the 24 teams, but it's not Panini fault that UEFA remembered to schedule playoffs so late. And Panini will have my support if they don't wait for the last 4 teams, because UEFA is screwing their business.

I don't mind to have an update with the 4 teams. Also don't mind to have those 4 teams released later in the same packets as the other 20 (heck, I'm used to Futebol sets, spanish are used to countless editions of new stickers every month!). I'm concerned more about if the album is going to be another "quick" solution like Euro 2016 was: small intro, strange celebration shinies and boring team pages.
