To watch Euro 2012 match in Uzhgorod will cost 25 hryvnia
On May 24, a press conference with the organizer of official public broadcasting of Euro 2012 football matches in Uzhgorod will be held in Uzhgorod Press Club.
Edwin Kahn, who received a license from UEFA to broadcast football matches in Uzhgorod, described in detail where football fans in Uzhgorod will be able to follow the development of Euro 2012, which will begin on June 8.
The area of Uzhgorod amphitheater will be specially equipped for this purpose. Edwin Kahn said that it is not going to be a fan zone but the very place for a public broadcast of football matches. The stands will be remodelled and painted yellow and blue. The screen of 12 square meters in size will be set here. The territory of the amphitheater, according to the speaker, will accommodate up to four thousand people.
Entrance will cost 25 UAH, and private security guards will work within the territory.
Regarding the cost of the license, for each square meter of the screen (if it is more than 3 square meters) one has to pay 35 euro, however, Ukrainian businessmen have a discount of 50%. According to Edwin, no one from Uzhgorod entrepreneurs applied for a license from UEFA, which is quite weird. The deadline for application was 18th of May.
The organizer of the show promises to transmit the spirit of the championship during the viewing. It is planned to create maximum comfort for fans, there will be sold food and the official symbols of Euro 2012.
The amphitheater will start working for the audience of football matches on June 8, fans will be able to follow the events of European Football Championship till July 1.
"A qualitative review will be provided by professional equipment, - said Edwin Kahn. - The image will be transmitted as accurately as possible. We are setting up professional sound".
