UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino considers Olimpiyskiy NSC in Kyiv to be one of the most beautiful EURO 2012 stadiums, he said this while sharing his impressions with the press office of the stadium, ForUm learned from Ukraine-2012 Information Center.

"When I saw the upgraded stadium with my own eyes, my breath stopped and my tongue failed me. This is a perfect arena with a wonderful atmosphere. The changes that have taken place at the Olympic since the time of my most recent visit are impressive. Undoubtedly, this is one of the most beautiful stadiums for the final part of the championship, and the spectators who will come here in summer will convince themselves of this. Though the stadium is designated not exclusively for football and initially I had fears that athletic lanes would distance spectators from the field, one can presently get an impression that everything is beside. A wonderful roof, seats with national colours and comfortable changing rooms taken together make the stadium very special. This is the arena of the highest European level," the UEFA general secretary said.

According to Infantino, despite external doubts of UEFA representatives that construction and reconstruction of Ukrainian stadiums would be completed in due time, everyone believed that Ukraine would cope with this task.

"We got confidence in Ukraine back in April 2007 when UEFA had chosen it together with Poland as hosts of the EURO 2012 championship. Of course, there were moments of doubt since then, but I was already convinced at that time that the 2012 championship would be held precisely here. We presently see the proof of this," the UEFA official emphasized.
