UEFA confirms Lviv as hosting city for Euro2012
UEFA confirms four host cities in Ukraine, including Lviv. The final of UEFA EURO 2012™ to be played in Kyiv.
On the occasion of the second day of its meeting in Madeira, Portugal, the UEFA Executive Committee examined and discussed the state of infrastructure preparations in Ukraine in respect of the final tournament of the UEFA European Football Championship 2010-2012.
After careful consideration of the documents and guarantees submitted to UEFA by the Ukrainian Government and the cities of Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kyiv and Lviv during the last couple of months, the infrastructure report prepared by the UEFA administration and after consultation with the host associations, the UEFA Executive Committee took the following decisions concerning the selection of host cities for UEFA EURO 2012™:
- to confirm Kyiv as the venue of the final match of UEFA EURO 2012™
- to confirm Donetsk and Lviv, and to appoint Kharkiv as host cities for group matches of UEFA EURO 2012™
The UEFA Executive Committee specifically noted, however, that there is still a huge amount of work that must be undertaken by all host cities and the Government of Ukraine to guarantee the full and proper implementation of the tournament requirements for UEFA EURO 2012™ matches. To this effect, UEFA will continue to closely monitor the state of infrastructure and operational preparations in the two host countries.
A decision regarding the match schedule for UEFA EURO 2012™ and the appointment of the host cities staging the other knock-out matches will be taken at a later stage.
