Over the next few months the construction of a football stadium in Lvov, which is to host the European Football Championships of 2012, will be carried out in the system of a 24-hour period – informed Ukrinform, the Ukrainian news agency.
Speeding up the works is the result of a general contractor’s agreement Azovintex from Mariumpola with the city authorities. According to the new work schedule, the delay of construction in relation to the deadlines set by the UEFA is to be eliminated during the two months before the announced visit of the stadium by the UEFA representatives.
The total cost of building a stadium in Lvov is to be close at 609.5 million hryvnias (about 78 million dollars) and the completion of the work is planned for June 2010.
In May this year the UEFA approved the candidacy of Kiev to host Euro 2012 and initially accepted the three other cities: Donetsk, Lviv and Kharkiv, provided that they make up for the delays identified by the European Football Union.
The European Football championships EURO 2012 will be organized by Poland and Ukraine. In Poland, the hosts will be Gdańsk, Poznan, Wroclaw and Warsaw.
