Union of European Football Association (UEFA) has announced Poland and Ukraine as the host of Euro Cup for 2012. This will be the first time in the history of eastern bloc to host such a prestigious event. This championship will play a key role to integrate German (during World War II) invaded Slavic Nations, Poland and Ukraine with Europe. The announcement was greeted with jubilation in both the countries but importantly this step marks the great strides that both these countries have taken post-Soviet era (both nations shook themselves free from the Soviet shackles, Poland in 1989 and Ukraine in 1991). The tournament would not only mark their confidence for their ability to acquire resources and better infrastructure but also is likely to boost their respective economies. However, there are growing concerns related to corruption in sports. Notably, almost 80 people were imprisoned last year for their involvement in corruption. Moreover political instability in Ukraine (where president’s verdict to dissolve parliament and call for early election) raises doubts for the successful completion of the coveted tournament.
