Most tickets for Euro 2012
have been sold, UEFA said on Monday.
"We have sold 95 percent of tickets for the Euro 2012
games," UEFA operations director Martin Kallen told reporters in
the Ukrainian capital.
"We will additionally sell 50,000 tickets as not all [national] federations have used their quotas. Prices will not
go up, they will be the same."
Kallen said tickets were still available for games in three
Ukrainian cities - Kiev, Donetsk and Kharkiv.
Earlier this month, UEFA president Michel Platini warned
Ukraine, who are jointly hosting the championships with Poland,
that fans would snub matches in the former Soviet republic
unless it brought down hotel prices which he said had been hiked
up by "bandits and swindlers".
The government has responded by launching anti-trust
investigations against hotels and promising a quick deal with
low-cost airline Ryanair.
Euro 2012 runs from June 8 to July 1.
