The rise of "Friendly Ukraine," warnings of racism, price gouging -- the lead-up to Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine is not starved for storylines. Perhaps unfortunately, the soccer and fan experience seem to be largely absent from the conversation.

We want to change that. Thousands of fans will travel to Ukraine over the next month, many of them staying with total strangers. We want to see and hear your story.

If you are a fan or someone hosting outside guests for Euro 2012 and you're interested in sharing your story, send an email to, or find us on Facebook and Twitter (or use the hashtag #myEuro2012).

We're looking for photos, video, blog posts, Twitter updates, and anything else that paints a picture of the experience in Ukraine.

The name recognizes RFE/RL's role as a surrogate broadcaster to places without free media. You can write us at
