Poland and Ukraine host Euro 2012




Poland and Ukraine have been chosen to host the 2012 European Championships.

Italy were widely expected to win the Uefa vote in Cardiff, with another joint bid from Croatia and Hungary also in the running.

However, Italy's bid was overshadowed by last season's referee corruption scandal and their on-going problems with football-related crowd trouble.
It will be the first time that either Poland or Ukraine have hosted a major football championship.
Their bid team staged an impressive presentation on Tuesday, featuring Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko, Liverpool keeper Jerzy Dudek as well as boxer Vitali Klitschko, former Olympic champion Sergei Bubka and Ukraine president Victor Yushchenko.
Nonetheless, the bid was still considered the outsider of the three, partly because of a recent match-fixing scandal in Poland.
The Polish government has also been warned by Uefa and Fifa about political interference in the country's football governing body.
Games will be played in four Ukrainian cities (Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Kiev and Lviv) and six Polish venues (Gdansk, Krakow, Poznan, Warsaw, Wroclaw and Chorzow).



Good Luck to:
Marta Domachowska, Joanna Sakowicz, Olga Brózda, Natalia Kołat, Karolina Kosińska, Magdalena Kiszczyńska, Klaudia Jans, Alicja Rosolska and the other polish girls

Monica Seles, Elena Dementieva, Kveta Hrdlickova, Karolina Woźniacki, Aiko Nakamura, Silvija Talaja , Darina Sedenkova

Re: Poland and Ukraine host Euro 2012

Congrats to you guys. May I ask whether you are going to construct new stadiums or are there some already? I have no idea and would like to know.

Ukraine and Poland are huge nations and will have enough cities to construct statiums. The problem I guess is there needs to be political initative. I predict that construction will be delayed and everything will then be done in a hurry. Anyway right now I am focused on the EURO in Switzerland and oh yeah also Austria.

Of course there are not yet. Some great projects though... as always is the case. But this time they HAVE TO build them.

Well looks like Ukraine is joining Poland as a West follower. Putin will not be happy when Ukraine joins EU

Wow congrats. I wonder if we'll have a decent manager by then so we can take part.

, although it always looks great on a paper. I assume it's gonna be quite costly but the spent money should return eventually. Anyway I wish you a successful EURO and good results for polish team.

edit: Another question, I heard there is a stadium for 70000 people in Warszawa. If it's true, it's gonna be reconstructed or are they gonna build a brand new one?
