Only three stadiums suitable for Euro 2012 preliminary matches


Only three stadiums in Romania can host preliminary matches for the Euro 2012 competition, the Romanian Football Federation  (FRF) said today (Weds).

FRF said that UEFA standards had been raised and only the following three stadiums would be allowed to host such matches: Steaua in Bucharest, Dr. Constantin Radulescu in Cluj and Dan Paltinisanu in Timisoara.
