It is just north of Gdansk, where Ireland will face champions Spain in their second Group C game on June 14.

Said manager Giovanni Trapattoni: “I am very happy that that we have been able to secure Gdynia as a base camp for Euro 2012.

“This base meets and exceeds all of our criteria, having a good training ground, being close to the airport and being based in Poland.

“The hotel and training facilities are excellent and provide us with a well positioned base with all of the facilities required for the championships.”

Ireland will train at the new municipal stadium in Gdynia, which has a 15,000 capacity.

The other two games – against Croatia on June 10 and Italy on June 18 – will take place around 325km south in Poznan.
