Sergei Pirozhkov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Moldova, said that Ukraine considers it an honor to hold the European football championship, as far as competitions of such level are held in Eastern Europe for the first time.
“On this occasion, the Embassy decided to build sport townships not only in Ukraine, but also in Moldova to let amateurs of these great games enjoy the viewing in comfortable conditions, among fans from diverse countries”, Ambassador Pirozhkov said.
Marcin Nosal, representative of the Polish Embassy to Moldova, said that Euro 2012 is an important event that Poland took most seriously.
According to Nosal, sport townships have been built in Poland long ago; this is why, the Embassy decided to take a part in building such township in Chisinau.
Victoria Musteata, spokesperson of the Orange Moldova mobile operator, said, said the company considers the European Championship an important event for many thousands football supporters of Moldova; therefore, Orange Moldova will be glad to sponsor the football township building in the central square.
