Who are the UEFA EURO 2012 mascots?

At Portugal in 2004 there was Kinas. Austria and Switzerland in 2008 had Trix and Flix. Now, following a poll of nearly 40,000 supporters, Slavek and Slavko were chosen as the names for the UEFA EURO 2012 mascots.

Some 56% of the 39,233 who took part opted for the names Slavek and Slavko ahead of two other alternatives: Siemko and Strimko (29%) and Klemek and Ladko (15%).

One twin wears the red and white of Poland, the other the yellow and blue of Ukraine. They even have their hair dyed in their national colours although, with each having a ball at their feet, it is clear that their favourite sport unites them.

Although physically alike, they are both fiercely proud of their individuality and heritage. Above all, though, they are drawn to football. With their energy and curiosity, they will be meeting like-minded souls from across Europe before and during the 2012 tournament – from children playing football to fans at stadiums and in the streets.
