We are very proud because of one event, that happened in 2012 – Poland and Ukraine hosted the biggest and the most famous European football Championship. The Big Finale occurred here, on the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, where Spain defended their title with a 4–0 win over Italy.
"We were very happy with operations here in Ukraine, as were the fans. We are very grateful for making all our wishes come true."
European football can be proud of the image it presented throughout this tournament: excellent matches, high technical standards
and magnificent stadiums.
