Will a record be? Thousands of Slovaks will go to the European Championship

BRATISLAVA. The slogan of the current European Championship (10 June – 10 July 2016) is the French word rendezvous. Thousands of Slovaks are also preparing for a football match.Even the record could fall.

The greatest support beyond the borders of Slovakia was enjoyed by the hockey player and the individual athletes in the last years by the cyclist Peter Sagan.

The Slovak fans have dominated the matches of our hockey players At this year’s World Cup in the Czech Republic (previously also in 2004), but their number has never exceeded ten thousand since they are no longer in Ostrava’s CEZ Arena.

The football fans encouraged the most fans in Prague against the Czech Republic Dublin vs. Ireland, or London Wembley vs. England.

At the premiere participation of Slovakia in the football championships of the world five years ago, only a few hundred fans traveled to South Africa.In France, everything will be different.

“Watching live football in a big tournament will be a dream for many fans. France is not that far, it is a pleasant destination. A visit to a football match can also be combined with a family trip, “says the head of the football club of the Slovak football team Roman Táborský. Every match elsewhere According to the UEFA regulations, each of the EURO 2016 players is eligible for 10% of the stadium capacity , But at least 6000 tickets.The smallest of the stadiums where the tournament will be played will be more than 33,000 fans (Toulouse), more than 80,000 (Stade de France).

However, the fans of both teams will also occupy places outside the reserved sectors. “The Slovaks are skilful to get tickets,” says Táborský.

Tickets were sold for the tournament in June this year, sold in the first wave by one million. So far, only the Frenchman know when and where they will join the base group matches. The bet will be 12.
