Temporary structures supplier De Boer is to provide more than 30,000 m2 of hospitality tents at this year's European Football Championships, taking place on June 8 to July 1 in the Ukraine and Poland.

The Netherlands-based company will erect structures at five locations for the competition: at Kiev, Kharkiv, Lviv and Donetsk in the Ukraine, and in Poznan, Poland.

The company will provide large A-frame structures and smaller Pyramids built around a terrace area forming hospitality villages at each location. The hospitality model mirrors the one De Boer provided for the PGA KLM Dutch Open Golf Championships in 2011.

De Boer will also supply catering areas, toilets, carpets and wooden terrace tiles, linings and cabling. More than 130 truckloads of equipment will be shipped into Poland and Ukraine from De Boer's European bases in Germany, Holland and Belgium.

De Boer has supplied temporary structures for the previous three European Football Championships, as well as for the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
