Below you can find a Facebook Euro 2012 overview of all known and official pages of the UEFA Euro 2012 national football teams. The 14th European Football Championship, this time hosted by Poland and Ukraine, started on the 8th of June. Social Media and specifically Facebook is playing a very important role at such international events with million viewers around the world.
It isn’t as easy as you might think to find the official Facebook pages of the Euro 2012 national football teams. Contrary to Twitter, where you can get a list with all Euro 2012 accounts and furthermore most team and player accounts are verified, you need to search Facebook a little bit longer to find those pages.

There are four national teams, where we couldn’t find an offical Facebook page – these are Portugal, Croatia, Denmark and even the host Ukraine. We hope that these countries will understand the importance of Facebook marketing in the future.
