Poland / Ukraine bids were selected by UEFA on 18 April 2007. Poland / Ukraine bids were higher than Italy and Croatia / Hungary. It was decided that EURO 2012 will be held at Arena Football Gdansk. Arena Football Gdansk is also called PGE Arena Gdansk.

The EUFA 2012 tournament is the last European Championship to be attended by 16 nations. The next EUFA Championship, which is Euro 2016, will have 24 participating nations. Oleksandr Lukyanchenko announced that most of the funding for the EUFA championship comes from municipal budgets.

The stadium where EUFA 2012 will be held will be built by Max Boegl. Max Boegl is an entrepreneur based in Wroclaw. The headquarters of Max Boegl are in the Polish city of Wroclaw. Formerly, the stadium's construction contract belongs to Mostostal Warsaw. Wroclaw terminated the contract due to delays in the stadium building. Mostostal Warsaw had already delayed the construction of the stadium for 4 months. The Mayor of Wroclaw, Rafal Dutkevich, said that the termination of the contract will not affect the implementation of stadium operations for the EUFA 2012 Championship. According to Rafal, he decided to terminate the contract because he saw that Mostostal Warszawa is not able to complete the construction project. Mostostal appealed against the termination of the contract, claiming that the delay was due to a factor that could not be controlled by the company.

Castrol is involved in an agreement with the Union of European Football Association. Castrol will be the official sponsor of the Euro tournament in 2012. The partnership allows Castrol to be a global partner in the European Championship. Castrol sales director Wojciech Mora said they are aware that viewers are constantly finding information about the football match, players and performance analysis. Therefore, they plan to create a unique analysis method called Castrol Index for the audience. Castrol has also signed a partnership agreement with other football associations, including the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Petro Poroshenko, Ukraine's foreign minister, had invited the United Arab Emirates to become involved in preparations for Euro 2012. Authorities have spent more than 1 billion UAH on building roads to the stadium for EUFA 2012. The full amount of the payment is planned to be paid to the main contractors before the end of 2012. They face a problem delivering the full payment due to the recent downturn in the global economy. However, Ukraine's main income includes tariffs on oil products and means of transport.https://xn--l3clbuukk5c4d8a3e5d.com/%e0%b8%95%e0%b9%8d%e0%b8%b2%e0%b8%99%e0%b8%b2%e0%b8%99%e0%b8%99%e0%b8%b1%e0%b8%81%e0%b8%9a%e0%b8%ad%e0%b8%a5%e0%b8%a2%e0%b8%b8%e0%b9%82%e0%b8%a3%e0%b8%9b/
