Hungary: Euro 2012 Bid

Pestcentric discovers that, due to the recent football scandals in Italy, Hungary (together with Croatia) may have a chance to win the bid to host Euro 2012: “Sure, Hungary has seasonal rioting, but it should be brought to the attention of those voting that there are no public holidays tied to a revolution in the summer months.”

    I only hope the best for Hungary and Croatia
    And the Hungary-Croatia bidding can keep up with the 24 teamed Euro as well, as announced.
    Maybe Italy is (was?) the favourit, but why should the big ones get the possibilities again? Italy has already organized two Euros.
    Can’t the others get the chance?
