Euro 2012 Poland/Ukraine

As ever I thought I might apply for tickets when they first went on sale back in March 2011. I put in a request for three games (and the Final) based on a short trip to Poland.
Unfortunately this was the reply I got
Dear Football Supporter,

After returning from summer holiday in 2011 I saw that the resale platform was about to open. Allegedly people who no longer want their tickets resell that back to UEFA (at a discounted price) and UEFA resell them (at a profit). OK I have to pay 10% more for the ticket but if it means I chance to get tickets………..I’ll have a go.
So I tracked the website and started to accumulate tickets. It did however seem strange that there appeared to be tickets available in batches. It made me wonder if these tickets really had been sold in the first place. But UEFA have issued statements at different times stating that all tickets have been sold….haven’t they?
Anyway now I have a two week journey around Poland and Ukraine planned for the tournament taking in nine games and six cities. 
I am looking forward to the atmosphere in the sold out stadiums.
Oh, look what I see on the UEFA website today 2nd June…tickets available
