The finals of the UEFA EURO 2012 championships may be held in Warsaw and not Kyiv, writes Gazeta Wyborcza, quoting recent decisions by UEFA.
The final match would be played at the new National Stadium in Warsaw.
Reportedly, UEFA is concerned over the number of hotels in Kyiv to accommodate fans, as well as problems with municipal transport and communications.
“We are very closely reconsidering changing the the venue of the final” says UEFA president Michel Platini.
“At the time being we are still closely monitoring this situation if there will be any improvements shown from Kyiv’s side.”
The ultimate decision on the venue for the finals is expected in December but UEFA has already decided to move the International Broadcasting Centre from Kyiv to Warsaw, and it has not happened in the history of the championships for the IBC to be in another city than the host of the final.
