UEFA EURO 2012™: Football. Comfort. Business.
The excitement is mounting as the UEFA European Football Championship Finals in Poland and Ukraine approach ever closer. In the summer of 2012, some of the world’s most talented footballers will gather to pursue ultimate victory with pride, passion and determination.
You can witness it first hand.
For the first time in over 50 years, the UEFA European Football Championship is heading to Central and Eastern Europe: in Poland and Ukraine, two countries that combine history, fine culture, striking art and most importantly, warm hospitality.
Where there was once limited contact between the East and West of Europe, the tournament represents a great opportunity for cultural exchanges and for visitors to discover Slavic generosity and goodwill. The joint hosts are determined that the hospitality will be as memorable as the football and the scenery and that all guests receive a very warm welcome.
In joining hands to stage this final tournament, Poland and Ukraine will be turning a new page and embracing their cultures. Both countries are extremely proud to jointly host this prestigious competition that runs from 8 June – 1 July 2012.
Sixteen national teams will compete in a total of 31 matches that will determine who will be crowned European champions. The format of four groups of four teams will be used for the last time in this tournament. The competition format will change for the next edition in 2016 as the line-up of participants competing in the final tournament will be increased to 24.
The UEFA EURO 2012™ matches will be played in eight host venues, four in Poland (Gdansk, Poznan, Warsaw, Wroclaw) and four in Ukraine (Donetsk, Lviv, Kharkiv and Kyiv). The opening match will take place in Warsaw on 8 June and the final on 1 July in Kyiv. No fewer than 1.4 million fans will be expected to visit the stadiums and the matches will be broadcast live in more than 200 territories around the world. A global audience will be watching Europe’s finest footballing nations competing for the coveted Henri Delaunay trophy.
