With EURO 2012
quickly approaching, are you getting excited? Hopefully your country does well! Imagine if they advanced to the finals and you had the opportunity to attend! If they do, would you buy some Euro 2012 final tickets
? The final will be held in Kyiv on 1 July.
By the way, the design for the tickets has been revealed at presentation ceremonies at Kyiv's Olympic Stadium and the National Stadium in Warsaw on 23 April. While tickets have sold out in Poland, Martin Kallen reminded fans still interested in matches to be staged in Ukraine that they will get one last chance to purchase tickets next month. "More than 95% of the tickets have been sold," he said. "About 50,000 tickets will be on sale from the beginning of May, because not all the participating federations have taken their full allocation."
No fewer than 1.4 million fans will be expected at the stadiums during the entire tournament and the matches will be broadcast live in more than 200 territories around the world. Do you think that past winners like Spain, Greece, France or Germany are favorites to go all the way again?
Which teams do you think will make it to the final?
Maybe this is the year that England
advances to the finals for the first time ever! England midfielder Frank Lampard has told UEFA
that he is "excited" by the prospect of playing in a major tournament he concedes is likely to be one of his last this summer. "Realistically, it's going to be one of my last tournaments, so I'd love to be part of an England squad that starts well and looks like we can go all the way; and then hopefully my part can be big in that, and I can help the team." he said.
To tie this with FM, I am sure that plenty of Football Manager 2012
gamers would have passed the EURO 2012 dates on their save games. It would be interesting to know which teams made it to the final in your games and who won
. Perhaps you were in charge of one of those teams that made it there?
