Euro 2012 kicks off in just a few days in Poland and the Ukraine with 16 European countries squaring off for the UEFA Euro Cup. This is the 14th championship for European national teams and with a huge soccer fan base in Vancouver, along with a melting pot of international visitors and residents, you will be able to watch the matches at various establishments around town.
I’m a first generation Canadian, with parents from England and Germany, so this sporting event is always a highlight. I have put together a quick list (that I will be updating) for your reference.
