Fan Zones

What is a Fan Zone?

Do you want to follow the fate of your team on an ongoing basis, and do not have a ticket to the game? Do you want to feel real football emotions and share them with other supporters of your team? If you plan to spend the Tournament time in Poland you must visit one of the four Fan Zones in the Polish Host Cities.

The Fan Zone is the second best place, after the stadium, to experience the football games during UEFA EURO 2012TM.

Four official Fan Zones have been planned in the four Host Cities. Plac Zebrań Ludowych (People's Gathering Square) in Gdansk–,Plac Wolności (Freedom Square) in Poznan, Plac Defilad (Parade Square) in Warsaw and at the Market Square and Plac Solny (Salt Square) in Wroclaw. In addition to the evening reports on the games, all kinds of attractions await you there.

Attractions and functions of the Fan Zone

The Fan Zones are located in the heart of each of the Host Cities and will be open throughout the Tournament.  Entry is absolutely free.
Designed to host thousands of fans, they will accept all who wish to watch every game played live on the big screen, and take advantage of the additional entertainment program.

Remember to follow the calendar of tournament events on the Polish Guide – you will find announcements of all the interesting events that are worth attending!

Where was the idea born?


The idea of jointly watching the games and showing support outside the stadium where the game took place was born in 2002 during the World Championships in Japan and Korea. Back then, groups of fans gathered in unofficial public viewing areas.

The first official Fan Zone was established four years later during the World Cup in Germany and was a huge success. Created in 2006, the Zone was visited by a total of more than 14 million people. Thousands of football fans showed support for their teams even during UEFA EURO 2012TM in Austria and Switzerland. In total, more than 6 million supporters visited the Zones.

Security and safety in the Fan Zone

You can receive free medical care at the points marked with the white first aid cross on the green background in the Fan Zone. The Zone is also monitored by medical foot patrols in red uniforms. First aid points are also marked on the Fan Zone maps. If you need hospital treatment, which will be decided by the medical staff, an ambulance will be waiting to move you to the hospital immediately.

Remember that no banned items - weapons or other dangerous objects, explosives, fireworks, fire-hazardous materials, alcoholic beverages, narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances may be brought into the Fan Zone. Entrance into the Zone is only allowed after inspection of clothing and bags. At the entrances you can deposit, all the items that you are not allowed to bring into the area of a mass event against a receipt.

The law enforcement and emergency as well as the information services will ensure your safety in the Zone.
