EURO mascot road show: Wroclaw

The UEFA EURO 2012 mascots, who will be named next Saturday, had a busy day on the latest stop of their tour of the eight host cities, visiting Wroclaw and opening their Christmas market.

Wroclaw was the latest stop in the UEFA EURO 2012 mascots' tour of the eight host cities on Friday.

The agenda in the Polish city started in the morning with a visit to Orbita indoor hall, where the as-yet-unnamed twin mascots watched children compete in sport competitions and a UEFA EURO 2012 quiz. The participants also had a lesson in supporting teams during matches and gave a rousing reception to the mascots.

At noon the mascots went on a city tour and visited key places in Wroclaw, including the under-construction stadium, the Stulecie arena and the iconic Grunwaldzki Bridge, which appears on the Wroclaw UEFA EURO 2012 logo. They posed for photos while the hundreds of attendees had the chance to compete in a contest, the winners awarded a glass replica of the new stadium.

In the evening festivities continued at the Old Market Square, where Wroclaw's famous Christmas market was opened. The mascots posed for more photos with a public delighted to welcome them to their city.

Wroclaw was the fourth of eight stops on the road show which ends in Warsaw on 4 December, when the mascots' names will be announced.
