Some 10,000 tickets for Euro 2012 remain unsold for matches in Ukraine, UEFA says, with figures showing there are still seats for traditional crunch fixtures such as England's opener against France on June 11.
"There are still a few thousand tickets left," UEFA spokesman Thomas Giordano told AFP. "It's more or less 10,000."
High accommodation prices and transport headaches have been blamed for a fall in the number of usually ardent England fans.
But Giordano warned against overplaying the issue.
"Overall we must be at around 99 percent now of all tickets sold. Because we had 1.4 million on sale. One percent left is not that bad, I think," he underlined.
