Ukraine has no problems with the fullness of its stadiums, according to Information Centre Ukraine-2012. All four stadiums are getting ready to host 16 matches of Euro-2012 will be 100% full. This was stressed at a press conference in Kyiv by Markiyan Lubkivskyi, the tournament director in Ukraine. He believes that if one of the teams in a match fails to buy all of its tickets, then the tickets are made available for fans of the second national team. This method will be used for matches both in Ukraine and Poland.
UEFA Chief Operating Officer Martin Kallen confirmed that the occupancy rates of Ukrainian stadiums do not lag behind those of Polish ones. "The two remaining categories of tickets for matches in Ukraine are currently on sale - corporate hospitality packages at expensive prices, designed for companies and corporate customers as well as tickets for ordinary fans, of which there is a small number. As to the first category of tickets – they will be sold out within the next two months. For distribution of tickets for fans, there will be an open additional sale on the official UEFA website. It will start in April, after the stage of payment for tickets for the quotas of national federations is completed. We will see how many unsold tickets remain and then announce the sale", said Martin Kallen.
He added that according to preliminary data, tickets for some games in Ukraine in Kyiv, Donetsk and Kharkiv will go on sale.
