Background

Mascots
The mascot names were announced in December 2010 after voting on the UEFA website. Almost 40,000 votes were received, leading to the following result: Slavek and Slavko: 56% of votes; Siemko and Strimko: 29%; Klemek and Ladko: 15%

Logo
The official logo for the tournament was unveiled at a special event at Mykhailivska Square, Kiev, on 14 December 2009. It takes its visual identity from Wycinanki, the traditional art of paper cutting practised in Poland and rural areas of Ukraine. The art form symbolises the nature of the rural areas of both countries. As part of the event, landmark buildings in the eight host cities were illuminated with the tournament logo. The competition slogan, "Creating History Together" was announced along with the logo. The slogan reflects the fact that Poland and Ukraine represent the easternmost host nations in European Championship history.

Draw
The draw for the final tournament took place on 2 December 2011 at the Ukraine Palace of Arts in Kiev, Ukraine, at 17:00 GMT (19:00 local time).

As was the case for the 2004 and 2008 finals, the sixteen finalists have been divided into four seeding pots, using UEFA's national team coefficient ranking. As co-hosts, Poland and Ukraine were automatically placed in Pot 1, along with Spain, as the defending champions.

In the draw procedure, each of the four groups will have one team from each pot. It will also determine which place in the group teams drawn from Pots 2�4 will take (i.e. A2, A3 or A4) to create the match schedule. For logistical reasons, Poland have already been assigned to A1, and Ukraine to D1, meaning the Netherlands and Spain could only fill either position B1 or C1.
