Some 2,000 handicapped-friendly premises in cities hosting Euro 2012 are included in the internet browser entitled "Handicapped-Handbook" coordinating preparations for the football tournament.

The disabled willing to come to Poland to cheer their football teams may find information about hotels, catering and services outlets adjusted to their need on www.polandnolinits.eu web site. They will also be able to check how to reach a given destination and how to move around in one of four Polish host cities.

Information is available in Polish, English and Russian. It is still being expanded.

"Handicapped-Handbook" exists since 2007. At first it included only addresses in Warsaw, but owing to UEFA co-sponoring the project embraces now addresses in Gdansk, Poznan and Wroclaw. The undertaking is implemented by the TUS foundation, a local partner of CAFE, a European charity organization promoting equal access of disabled fans to sport events.

It functions within the framework of football championships and under the auspices of UEFA as "Respect Inclusion Football with no limits" project. The 16-nation Euro 2012 soccer championships, slated for June 8- July 1, 2012, will take place in four Polish cities of Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw and Poznan as well as four Ukrainian cities of Kiev, Lvov, Donetsk and Kharkov.
