Somewhere to stay

The Euro 2000 Foundation offers help on hotel rooms
With something like a million supporters expected to travel to Belgium and the Netherlands, accommodation will clearly be at a premium during the European Championships.

Advice and bookings can be obtained through the Accommodation and Catering department of the Euro 2000 Foundation.

Belgian travel agent De Boeck and another in the Netherlands, Advanced Travel Partners, have worked closely with the Foundation to establish a database of available accommodation.

These agents have contracted about 270 Belgian and Dutch three to five-star hotels, which together offer some 15,000 hotel rooms.

The hotels are divided into eight regions where the matches will take place.
