The newly appointed UEFA Country Manager Bo Sundstrom, who monitors Ukraine and Poland in terms of their host cities' preparations for EURO 2012, has visited the Donbass Arena stadium, the Donbass Arena Media Center has reported.

"We need to go ahead with allocation of all of the arena's capacities in accordance with UEFA requirements. I am new to this project, that's why we are slightly behind schedule, but everything will be streamlined after this visit. This is a fantastic stadium, one of the top European arenas, and now I don't see a single issue we facing us that we wouldn't be able to tackle. I would put it this way: nothing is impossible for the Donbass Arena!" he said, UKRINFORM reported.

The new country manager is not equally confident about the city though.

"The mobility concept and the city infrastructure preparation must be a matter of principle for the city authorities. You are to be ready to receive large quantities of visitors in your great city, but, unfortunately, I can't see any real measures by the city government at the moment. The above issues should be the top priority for the authorities in Donetsk, notwithstanding that the EURO 2012 tournament will be held just in two years. Primarily I mean airport terminals, motorways, hotels, sports facilities etc," Sundstrom said.

On December 11, 2009, UEFA finally approved Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv and Donetsk as cities that are to host the UEFA EURO 2012 European Football Championship.
