The final tournament will be hosted by Poland and Ukraine between 8 June and 1 July 2012. It is the first time that either nation has hosted the tournament.

The joint Poland–Ukraine bid was chosen by a vote of the UEFA Executive Committee at a meeting in Cardiff on 18 April 2007, defeating both Italy and a Croatia–Hungary bid.[1] Poland–Ukraine became the third successful joint bid for the European Championship, after those of Belgium–Netherlands (2000) and Austria–Switzerland (2008). Italy had been considered favourites to win the hosting but incidents of fan violence and a match fixing scandal were widely cited as factors behind their failure.

The obligatory improvement of the football infrastructure includes the building of new stadiums: six of the eight venues are brand new stadiums currently being constructed ready to open in advance of the tournament; the remaining two (in Poznań and Kharkiv) have undergone major renovations to improve them. Three of the stadiums will fulfill the criteria of UEFA's highest category stadiums.

euro 2012 mascots names euro 2012 mascots named slavek and slavko Slavek and Slavko are the official mascots of the UEFA Euro 2012. They are twins and represent Polish and Ukrainian footballers in national colours. The mascots were announced in December 2010.[41] Similarly as in 2008 names Slavek and Slavko were chosen in the web voting, over "Siemko and Strimko" and "Klemek and Ladko". It should be noted, however, that the name of the "Polish" mascot, Slavek, is not Polish. The letter "v" does not exist in the Polish alphabet and is used on a daily basis only in a very limited set of loan words. More importantly, the Polish equivalent of the Ukrainian Slavko would be Sławek, which contains the letter "ł", pronounced quite differently from "l" (in a way its proper pronounciation resembles that of the letter "w" in the word "walk"). UEFA, however, refused to incorporate non-English letters in the mascots' names.[42] They were designed by Warner Bros. euro 2012 mascot launch euro 2010 mascots euro 2012 mascots names euro 2012 mascots named slavek and slavko euro 2012 mascot launch euro 2010 mascots euro 2012 mascots names [...]
