While many of London's Ukrainians will no doubt fly back home to enjoy the festivities as joint host nation of Euro 2012, there will still be some Ukrainian fans staying in London for the tournament and surely relishing their Group D clash against England. Truth be told, Ukraine would probably not have qualified for the Euros had they not gained automatic entry along with Poland and the chances of them progressing into the knockout stages are about as unlikely as Andriy Shevchenko resigning for Chelsea. Given their nation's bad track record with racism and the current well-documented human rights issues, don't expect many Ukrainians to head out into town to watch the games alongside English fans. They will no doubt keep to themselves with one venue in particular standing out.

The London branch of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) is showing all of Ukraine's games in Euro 2012 at the Ukrainian Community Centre in Holland Park. The London Branch of the AUGB has been based in Holland Park for almost 50 years and is the hub of activities for the Ukrainian community in London. A large screen above a stage in a large entertainment hall will show the co-hosts take on Sweden, France and England and any subsequent matches the team may play. The AUGB is the largest representative body for Ukrainians and those of Ukrainian descent and this Holland Park venue is your best bet for Euro 2012 if you want to watch the co-hosts with a Ukrainian crowd.
