Fitch: Euro 2012 set to cost €27bn

Filed under: Money,Poland — Ivan @ 12:40 am

The rating agency Fitch estimates that hosting the Euro 2012 football championships will set Poland back €27bn. The agency’s calculations take into account both the construction of new stadiums for matches as well as investments in transport infrastructure.

Representatives of the previous government argue that the agency’s estimates are too high, even though no official cost estimate for the tournament is in place. According to the government, such an estimate should be ready by the end of 2007. Fitch reckons that the biggest challenge facing the organisers is bringing old and incomplete road infrastructure up to scratch. In the agency’s opinion, the country’s transport infrastructure needs may require total expenditure of as much as €100bn. Civic Platform (PO) MPs, who have formed Poland’s new governing coalition with the Polish Peasants’ Party (PSL), regard the agency’s figures as reliable estimates.

The new government is pondering possible changes to the existing law aimed at streamlining the road construction process, since the country’s special Euro 2012 statute does not take such investments into account. PO wants to simplify and shorten administrative procedures, including those dealing with the expropriation and purchasing of land.

When Joaquin Phoenix flipped his car on a Los Angeles road in 2006, the first thing he reached for after the shock began to set in was a pack of smokes and his trusty lighter. That’s understandable, to a point. But you know, maybe get away from your demolished vehicle first, unless you’re an actual phoenix and can survive the flames.”The game of football and the money that was out there they wanted the best players in the games, no matter what. If he was 80 percent well or 75 percent, they believed that he, the starter, was better than the second guy behind him, and they’d rather have a less percentage guy. They didn’t protect us at all,” Lippett says. “I took shots in my foot, in my shoulders, in my ribs. They had to know of the ramifications of going back out there with different injuries. The money aspect of it just forced them to not pay attention.”Thank you, operator. Welcome wholesale nfl jerseys to EA’s fiscal 2015 first quarter earnings call.
