Wroclaw: 42,771 / 40,000
Poznan: 41,609 / 40,000

Kyiv: 70,050 / 60,000
Donetsk: 52,518 / 50,000
Kharkiv: 38,633 / 35,000
Lviv: 34,915 / 30,000

The two largest stadiums are losing the most.
Luckily, it appears that UEFA did not respect the official "UEFA capacity" it has announced on their website. The real capacities were more or less respected. That's great.

It might have something to do with the fact that in times of Russian Empire, parts of modern day Poland were under Russian control and Poles probably aren't really happy about that. And seeing Imperial flag probably triggers some emotions in Poles.
+Poland and Russia aren't really 'best friends', are they?
That's just my unbiased point of view

I like all these blocks of pictures. Keep them coming, or seeing as some are reposted from another thread, can I have the link to where we can find them?
Read somewhere in a paper that it's supposed to be the biggest yet for a Euro Championship, able to hold 100,000. The pic does look like it.

Russia football federation calls for respect from its fans after violence

WARSAW, POLAND - Russia's football federation warned its fans Sunday that hooliganism could cost the team vital points at Euro 2012 after UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings into reports of violence by supporters at the team's first match.

Video emerged Saturday of Russia fans fighting with stadium stewards in Wroclaw and UEFA also says it is investigating reports by anti-racism experts of abuse directed at Czech players during Russia's 4-1 victory.

In a statement posted on its website, the Football Union of Russia called on its large contingent of travelling fans to "Respect yourself, your home and your team."

The statement praised the majority of its fans for their boisterous support of the team but said political statements "have no place in the stands" and told supporters to co-operate fully with match organizers.

Friday's incidents flared before Russia takes on Poland in a highly charged Group A match in Warsaw on Tuesday — a Russian national holiday when fans plan to march from the city centre to the stadium.

lol so if they try to pull anything for the Poland - Russia match they may lose points by UEFA. Has something like this ever happened?

I'm just wondering what kind of education you've had? Are you trying to troll here or you're just kidding? Russia was occupying Poland for almost 200 years (all together up to 1991), and you still dare to ask why its imperial flag is a problem in Poland?. Wake up

Few in number, fans enjoy Donetsk sunshine ahead of match between England and France

http://elektraua.livejournal.com/

DONETSK, Ukraine — European Championship fever has swept Warsaw and is heading to Donetsk — or at least, it's supposed to be.

But the calm streets tell a different story, a day before one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the group stage: England vs. France.

"It doesn't feel like it's started yet," said Dan Gover, a 21-year-old England fan, speaking to The Associated Press in an upstairs bar area at the Liverpool Hotel — supposedly a key meeting point for the traveling England fans.

The top-floor bar counter is designed to fit inside a replica goal, with "Anfield Terrace" written above it in honor of Liverpool football club, England's most successful club along with Manchester United.

What more could a football fan wish for in the thick of a tournament? Yet by mid-afternoon, no one else was there.

Gover is traveling with Nick Goldstein, a 24-year-old fan. They took the six-hour ride from Kiev, in a comfortable but sparsely populated train. There were no singsongs, no raucous bonding as usually happens when England supporters travel.

They both agree that Donetsk, and Kiev, have been welcoming places, so far free of the trouble apparently lying in store for them.

But they have had problems making themselves understood in Ukraine, struggling to find people who speak English.

"Poland's more geared up for tourists, they're not used to it here," said Goldstein, proudly wearing an England shirt with 'Nick' on the back and chatting excitedly about England's chances. At least the tickets were cheap: about €80 for two.

So is the beer, which makes it a football haven for England fans — the few that are here, at least.

After a two-hour the main spots of Donetsk's city center on Sunday afternooon, around 20 England fans were seen, and only two French fans.

At Euro 2004, thousands packed into a square in Lisbon, bellowing out songs and draping flags over fountains and statues.

"It's a bit quiet, I've not seen many people," said Simon Betts, a 38-year-old Sheffield Wednesday fan.

Betts and his traveling buddy Fredrik Hendberg found the locals charming — although the language barrier was also a stumbling block.

"We've had no problems at all here," said Hendberg. "Only the language, and even then the people are always smiling."

Pre-tournament media coverage painted a darker picture of Ukraine and Poland, highlighting problems with racism and football violence.

Because it was hosting England, which has a football past tainted by hooliganism, Donetsk was viewed as a potential trouble spot.

The city of around one million inhabitants was founded in 1869 by Welshman John Hughes, who established steel and coal production here.

Under Soviet rule in the 1920s, it adopted the name of Stalino, reflecting its growing importance as an industrial center ('stal' in Russian means 'steel'). It was later renamed Donetsk to distance it from Josef Stalin.

It is now known as the "City of a million roses" but it is also famous among Ukrainians as an industrial powerhouse, the scene of violent battles between business groups in the 1990s and the hometown of the country's ruling elite that came to power after President Viktor Yanukovych took office in 2010.

The city has a gritty feel to it.

Soviet era tower blocks stand tall over the population, who are an intriguing mix of past and present. An old lady in worn out clothes sits next to a disused tire, which has flowers sprouting from it.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, Donetsk became a center of gang wars as business groups clashed for control over valuable industrial assets. The violence even touched the city's main soccer club, Shakhtar Donetsk, when its president Aleksandr Bragin was killed in an explosion during a game in 1995.

Rinat Akhmetov, now Ukraine's richest man with a fortune estimated by Forbes at $16 billion, emerged as Donetsk's most powerful businessman. He is credited by many locals for helping to rebuild the city and for bankrolling Shakhtar to success as club president.

Shakhtar, nicknamed the Miners, won the UEFA Cup in 2009. Akhmetov also bankrolled the building of the team's stadium $400 million, the Donbass Arena.

It looks a bit like a UFO at night, glowing in a fluorescent blue light.

In a pre-tournament documentary about Donetsk by British television network Sky, a young man called Tolik Egorov — a self-proclaimed leader of Shakhtar's hooligan fringe — is filmed undercover boasting as to how England fans could face a rough time in Donetsk.

But Betts has not encountered a single threat.

"It's been very easy here, easier than at other places," he said.

For now, there are no hooligans looking for trouble on the city's wide boulevards.

Some of the few police dotted around the city on Sunday afternoon ducked for cover in a shopping precinct.

But they weren't retreating from a hail of bottles, they were sheltering from the heat.

Its a pity that the actions of a few ruin things for many others.

It seems to be an even more plagued by negative reporting than about the matches themselves. This is the case from weeks ago, with so many negative stories just setting the mood for what people then expected would occur. Giving the countries a chance to show what they could do would have been far more wise than what we now have being reported upon. A real pity.
