I want to go to Poland and Ukraine to see euro cup.
I think it is going to be something bigger than regular cup.

There is much more important things that Ukraine needs to finance before a football match. Yes the Euroepan Cup is a prestige event and yes there is some limited economic benefit BUT should Ukraine’s priority and limited public resources be spent on this event at this time in their economic development. 2012 will be a difficult year for any nation least a developing nation.

It would be great if UEFA could answer the substantive question? “Why did UEFA award Euro 2012 to Poland and Ukraine?” Why did they not wait and ward these countries the games in 2020?

The stadiums will be bigger and better than in Austria and Switzerland.
Not to mention the thing this is EURO2012 so it means it for whole continent and you people know only names of a few countries and think this is Europe!
Before you write this kind of articles you first should check the details.

Poland and Ukraine as one of the biggest countries in Europe have every right to host the European Championship.

Poland still has a lot of work to do but did you miss the part where Platini said they’re on track? I don’t know where you got the idea that UEFA regrets naming Poland as one of the hosts.

As for a plan B if Ukraine can’t speed up its preparations, according to Platini it’ll simply be four Polish cities and the 2 best prepared Ukrainian cities. Germany is not being considered and it would be ridiculous to give them Euros when they already hosted the World Cup only a few years ago. It’s a fact that teams benefit greatly from playing at home so giving one country that advantage twice in such a short space of time would be unacceptable in my opinion.

May be the Germans are quite spontaneous … at least in terms of football. They would probably take their chance and celebrate a great football party with their polish neighbours. But lets hope Ukraine will make it in time. And after all: It has always been discussions. Will Athens get everything done in time, will South Africa … it always gets done in time. GREAT BLOB, cheers Dorothea
