Hyundai Motor today announced winning slogans picked by fans to adorn the official buses of the 16 national teams participating in the upcoming UEFA EURO 2012 soccer tournament, as sponsored by the “Be There With Hyundai” fan contest.

The slogans will be wrapped around team buses for the duration of the UEFA EURO 2012 tournament, which will be held in Poland and Ukraine from June 8 to July 1.

The winning slogans for each of the 16 participating UEFA EURO 2012 nations and their English translations appear in the attached table.

In addition to seeing their slogan wrapped around an official national team bus, each of the 16 winners receives two hospitality packages to a quarter-final match in Gdansk, Poland. Packages include flights, hotel accommodations, match tickets, food and tours.

The worldwide “Be There With Hyundai” contest allowed fans of the 16 participating nations to submit slogans that would wrap around the official bus carrying the team from their favorite nation. Fans began submitting slogans in December 2011.

In April, the top three slogans from each country were uploaded onto UEFA.com to allow all fans to vote on the slogans.

The winning slogans were picked from 5,250 entries submitted through UEFA.com as well as other channels, such as Hyundai Poland’s Facebook page.

Hyundai is an official sponsor of the UEFA EURO 2012 tournament.
