Welcome to Eurio 2012!
The number of foreign soccer fans traveling to Poland for Euro 2012 could be much lower than initially forecast, according to a new report from the country's Ministry of Sport and Tourism.
It was expected that between 470,000-710,000 soccer fans would come to Poland during Euro 2012, but new research suggests there could be as few as 200,000, reported Puls Biznesu.
“We have to downgrade the number of soccer fans we expect,” said Dariusz Łapiński from organizing body PL.2012.
According to the most recent calculations, for games involving the Czech Republic, Russia, Croatia and Ireland, between 10,000-12,000 fans from each country are expected to attend.
The lowest number of fans are expected to come from Italy, Spain and Greece, with only 5,000 fans predicted to travel for each of their respective countries' group matches.
Three teams with some of the traditionally biggest traveling support – England, the Netherlands and Germany – will each play all three of their group matches in Ukraine. Ukraine expects huge numbers of fans following
England, Germany and Netherlands - but accommodation is limited for key match dates in Donetsk, Lviv and Kharkov - causing additional problems...but if you check on www.select-a-room.com there is plenty of
accommodation in each of the host cities including Kiev!
So - now we know. Top seeds Spain travel to Poland along with Italy, Ireland and Croatia; Netherlands and Germany play in Kharkov and Lviv along with Denmark and Portugal; England and France travel to Ukraine (Donetsk and Kiev), along with Sweden and hosts Ukraine; Russia, Czech and Greece join joint hosts Poland in Warsaw and Wroclaw!
We have lots of cheap accommodation online - so book now and welcome to Euro 2012!
