Further, a performance bonus at the group stage of EUR 500,000 per draw and EUR 1 million per win was fixed, as well as a bonus of EUR 1 million to the third-placed team in the group.

The quarter-finalists will each receive EUR 2 million, the semi-finalists EUR 3 million, the runners-up EUR 4.5 million and the winners of Euro 2012 EUR 7.5 million.

The Executive Committee also approved the date and location for the Euro 2012 play-off draw that will take place in Krakow, Poland, on October 13, 2011.

The exact timing and location will be announced in due course.
