It’s finally here. Happy Euro 2012 Day from all here at Manchester City. Strap yourselves in for three weeks of high-octane, nerve-shredding football action from Poland and Ukraine.
Your work sweepstakes should have been drawn, your fridges should be fully stocked with something cold and the pizza delivery menu should be close at hand for this, the 14th European Championship finals.
We have eight players out there at the tournament and if you’ve missed any of our Euro 2012 previews, there’s still time to evaluate the prospects of our boys in blue in our “spotlight on...” series.
We’ve also put every team under the microscope in a bid to arm you with as much information as possible on the teams that will contest this hotly-anticipated competition.
Tonight, Greece will take on co-hosts Poland and Russia will face Czech Republic in Group A before the tournament really heats up tomorrow, with Denmark v Netherlands and Germany v Portugal.
If you’re struggling for enthusiasm for the tournament after the gruelling domestic season, it’s high time you took a look at our 16 players to watch photo gallery, our 10 greatest Euros moments gallery, or our five reasons to be excited for Euro 2012 article and get in the mood for a summer banquet of continental football.
Make sure that you keep visiting the Manchester City website over the next few weeks for all the news and reaction from the competition, including features on all of City's competing players.

Don't forget that you can watch all of England's games at City Square, with competitions and giveaways taking place outside the Etihad Stadium. It's the only place you can watch England outdoors in Manchester.
