​Which UK city is the most interested in Euro 2016...and it's not Liverpool or Manchester!

A UK and Europe-wide breakdown of web searches has found which countries and cities are most interested in the upcoming Euros, reports,www.fcbusiness.co.uk

The results show that rather than football mad London, Liverpool or Manchester, Norwich is the most interested in the Euros, according to a study into internet searches.

In fact none of those three even made the top ten. With Norwich top, Derby were second, Nottingham third and Newcastle fifth.

Also in the top ten was Brighton, Cambridge and Bristol.

Across the EU top of the list was Brussels with Lyon and Paris second and third.

However, in the top ten there were more German cities than French ones.

In terms of the most interested countries, it seems Eastern Europe is getting more excited with Ukraine top of the list, with Russia in second.

The results were gained by researching the amount of searches for 'UEFA Euro 2016' over the course of the year.
