Euro 2012 Hosting

Euro 2012 Hosting.
Poland and Ukraine will host the 2012 European Championships.

Poland and Ukraine's joint bid beat out favorites Italy and the joint Croatia and Hungary bid.

Despite a recent match-fixing scandal in Poland, 3rd favorites Poland and Ukraine's joint bid got the nod from UEFA in a major shock.

The 2012 tournament will be played in four Ukrainian cities (Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Kiev and Lviv) and among four of six possible Polish venues (Gdansk, Krakow, Poznan, Warsaw, Wroclaw and Chorzow).

Kiev's Olympic Stadium with a capacity of 80,000 will be the venue for the final.
