Hot News - UEFA Euro 2012: 95 Percent Tickets Sold

Most of the tickets for Euro 2012 have been sold, said by UEFA on Monday. "We have sold 95 percent of tickets for Euro 2012 matches," said UEFA's director of operations, Martin Kallen told reporters in the capital of Ukraine.

     Kallen said tickets are still available and can be obtained in three cities of Ukraine, namely Kiev, Donetsk, and Kharkiv. "We will add 50 000 ticket sales because not all federations (national) have used their quota. Prices will not rise, which will remain the same."

     Earlier this month, the president of UEFA, Michel Platini warned Ukraine, which will host together with Poland, that the prospective audience may refuse to come to the states of the former Soviet Republic, if the hotel room rental rates are not lowered. Platini even cast as 'bandits and swindlers' to the hotelier.

     Ukraine's government immediately responded by launching anti-monopoly investigation of the hotels and promised a deal with the budget airline, Ryanair. Euro 2012 will take place from June 8 until July 1.
