Poland and Ukraine to host Euro 2012

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).

Interesting choice.

 

England fans + cheap booze = carnage.

 

That's assuming "+ qualification".

 

There's no way McClown will still be in charge when we fail to qualify for Euro 2008.

True. With a bit of luck we'll be in Big Sam's Route One-ville by then ;)

Ask yesel this does the world revolve aroond the English people? Well a think it does personally but England abroad noo is 16 year old wannabes from Huddersfield and familes wi deck chairs. Besides Sweden is the most expensive place known to man for a pint, and we had a few rows at Euro 92. Who gives a fuck anyway?
