Almost 15,000 fans supported the national team in the historic Euro match
Euro 2020 went down in history for the national team of Ukraine. We reached the playoffs for the first time, played in the quarterfinals for the first time. This page was written by coaches and players together with the fans, whose desire to support the Ukrainian team could not be stopped.
Yes, there were not many of us in the stands, the pandemic still made adjustments. But thousands of Ukrainians watched the matches of the national team not at home or in bars, but in fan zones, where you can also feel the atmosphere of a great game. The largest venue was the Sports Square, where the broadcasts of the matches were organized by the official partner of the Ukrainian national team, Parimatch, with the support of the Kyiv city authorities and the Palace of Sports.
That’s where, to the largest LED screens in Europe, the Gulliver mall, fans came to watch the game Ukraine – England. And this time the number of fans reached almost 15 thousand . They started to come earlier, in particular, to watch the broadcast of the match Czech Republic – Denmark. Fans came with whole families, with small children, earlier to take the best seats. The air literally felt how cheered everyone was with the game.
Before our team went on the field, everyone was waiting for a pleasant surprise, a mini-concert with YarmaK , which further inflamed the audience. When the anthem of Ukraine was played later and the referee gave the starting whistle, the whole Kyiv loudly began to support ours. Emotions raged throughout the game on the Sports Square. Fans supported the team, chanted “Ukraine!” and even made a small pyrotechnic show.
Yes, we gave up, but we are leaving the Euro with our heads held high, because we have something to be proud of! Of our footballers, our character, our dedication, our fans. The quarterfinals of the European Championship are our common achievement. You need to be able to lose with dignity. We fought to the last and proved that we got to the tournament not by chance. So, Euro, don’t be sad, we will come back for our victory!
