Hundreds of thousands of fans are expected to attend the upcoming Euro 2012 soccer tournament, and Polish public health officials will be targeting them with the "Fair Play" campaign to promote safer sex. Some 150,000 free kits with condoms and informational leaflets - in Polish, Ukrainian, Russian, English, German, and Spanish - will be distributed at fan zones in all four Polish host cities, said Aleksander Soplinski, the deputy health minister. The tournament opens June 8 in Warsaw and continues through July 1 in Poland and Ukraine.
