Following the results of the group stage and the quarterfinals, the Euro 2012 stadiums has been attended by about 1.3 million fans. This is a record number of viewers, according to the UEFA official statistics.

In particular, Euro 1960 in France was attended by 78 thousand fans, Euro 1964 in Spain - 156 thousand, Euro 1968 in Italy - 192 thousand, Euro 1972 in Belgium and Euro 1976 in Yugoslavia - 106 thousand each, Euro 1980 in Italy -  350 thousand, Euro 1984 in France – 600 thousand, Euro 1988 in Germany - 936 thousand, Euro 1992 in Sweden - 429 thousand.
