EURO 2012 mascots

Do you remember the mascots from EURO 2008? Trix and Flix were football twins whose spiky hair was meant to represent the mountains of host countries Austria and Switzerland. The new mascots for EURO 2012 have a very close resemblance, and once again, fans are being asked to choose their names.

 

A huge ceremony at the Warsaw Polish Theater today introduced the pair. One twin wears the red and white of Poland, and the other, the yellow and blue of Ukraine. They are integral ingredients of the intensive marketing campaign getting ready to ramp up.

 

“The two mascots represent the joint effort and commitment of both countries and their football associations to organize a successful EURO 2012," explained Grigoriy Surkis, President of the Football Federation of Ukraine. "We share the same ideas and we are looking forward to the fun of the tournament. The only thing that separates the mascots is that each of them will support a different team.”

 

UEFA.com is asking fans to name the mascots by voting on three choices: Slavek & Slavko, Siemko & Strimko, or Klemek & Ladko. Polish and Ukrainian fans can also cast votes while meeting the mascots in person, as they take a road trip to visit stadiums and tourist attractions in all eight cities hosting the games. The pair will return to Warsaw on December 4th to announce their winning names.
