The 2012 Uefa Champions League final in Munich has been an unexpectedly popular choice for corporates, according to Proske managing director Lindsay Gomer, who thought that corporates would target all their budget at bigger events like the 2012 Games.

"Despite Uefa Euro 2012 taking place in Poland and Ukraine and the Olympic Games in London later that summer, many businesses are defying the economic climate and making enquiries about packages and options for the Uefa Champions League final too.

"We are in negotiations with a number of large and small companies to help them plan their events and logistics ahead of next spring’s Uefa final at the Allianz-Arena," he added.
 
Proske is running the International and Local Hospitality & Ticketing Management Program at the Uefa Champions League Final 2012 in Poland and Ukraine for sponsor Coca-Cola.
 
Uefa Euro 2012 is a 31-match tournament in Poland and Ukraine. VIP and consumer programmes are provided by Proske.
