Euro 2012 Tickets – Ticket Design Unveiled

With one month and a half to go before Euro 2012 officially begins this Summer, the design of the match tickets was revealed at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium (the venue for the final) and Warsaw’s National Stadium (where the tournament will get underway on June 8th) this week.

The ticket, beautifully colored, is horizontal with a large flower on the front, the leaves of which depict the stadium hosting a match and the flags of the two countries involved. The front also features the number of the match (in a top-right flower bud), along with seat details. Instructions on how to reach the stadium can be found on the reverse, along with a security strip.

“There has been talk that the tickets are already in circulation in Ukraine, but it is not true”, said Markiyan Lubkivskiy, Ukraine’s UEFA EURO 2012 tournament director. “We only have the design now. The actual tickets will be received by fans 3-4 weeks before the beginning of Euro 2012 by registered post. The tickets have several levels of protection and it will be almost impossible to imitate them”.

While tickets have sold out in Poland, UEFA operations director 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 participating federations have taken their full allocation”.

Speaking of tickets, Italy will be taking on Spain in their first game of the group stage on June 10, and doubtless all seats at Arena Gdansk stadium in Gdansk, Poland will be sold out for this one. has already set up a preview page for the match on their website, with some pretty interesting information including head-to-head record, form guide, and team ties (which players crossed paths, played together before, that sort of thing…).

Notably, I especially liked the “Selected previous meetings” section which outlines three previous encounters of the Italy vs. Spain fixture through the ages. There’s that August 2011 friendly where Italy won 2-1, the Euro 2008 quarter-finals, and the World Cup Quarter-Finals back at USA 94. Certainly brings back memories…
