DONETSK, February 22 (Itar-Tass) — Fans of the national football teams that will take part in UEFA’s EURO 2012 championship will bring a revenue of 130 million euros to Ukrainian restaurateurs, says a forecast published by the Ukrainian Club of Agrarian Business association /UKAB/.
An average lunch at a restaurant in Kiev is dozens of percent less expensive than in the Ukrainian restaurants in West-European cities, the association says.
According to UKAB a standard Ukrainian-style lunch consisting of a borsch /beetroot soup/, chicken Kiev, a salad, and compote will cost around 32 euros in Paris, 25 pounds sterling in London, 33 euros in Vienna and 24 euros in Berlin.
In Moscow, a fixed-meal Ukrainian lunch will cost 600 rubles /around $ 20/ on the average.
UKAB assures on the face of it that the EURO 2012 guests will enjoy the bills far below the European ones, as an average lunch in Urkaine’s fast-food restaurants and snack bars does not exceed 8.5 euros or 190 rubles.
The authors of the forecast obviously made their computations on the basis of UEFA’s official plans suggesting that the championship, which is co-hosted by Ukraine and Poland, will be visited by about 2 million guests and each of them will pay no less than 65 euros for his or her meals.
Another factor inspiring UKAB’s optimism is the information released by the EURO 2012 director on the Ukrainian side, Markian Lubkivsky. He said that the most active buyers of tickets for the championship games are the nationals of countries, whose teams have fallen into the same group with Ukraine – the Germans, the Dutch, the Russians, the Swedes, and the Danes.
