European Cup tour in Ukraine, Poland
Euro-2012 fans will have a unique opportunity to see up close the main trophy of the 2012 European Football Championship, the Henri Delaunay Cup, between 20 April and 26 May 2012. Starting from the 50-day mark before the first match of the tournament, the advertising campaign “UEFA EURO 2012: welcome the Cup” will last for one month in 14 cities of both host countries. The Trophy Tour will start on 20 April in Warsaw, and then it will pass through the whole of Poland and Ukraine before its completion in Odessa on 26 April.
The Local Organizing Committee has announced that each host city will welcome the Cup with a grand parade. Participants will locate the trophy in a special place, and it will be available to broader public in the course of the next two days.
The UEFA Trophy Tour will be accompanied by prominent football players and Friends of Euro-2012, including Euro-2012 Ambassadors: Andriy Shevchenko, Oleh Blokhin, Andrzej Szarmach and Zbigniew Boniek.
Fans will be able to be photographed together with the Cup at each stop of the tour, and they will enjoy the air balloon of 35.5-meter height imitating this trophy in the places where the weather will permit. Entertainment programmes will be organized for guests of the events, and some people will be lucky enough to receive tickets and footballs.
