Officials say the ''Fair Play'' campaign advocating the use of condoms will be held in all four Euro 2012 cities in the country.

Deputy Health Minister Aleksander Soplinski said Tuesday that some 150,000 free kits of condoms and leaflets will be distributed in fan zones to alert them to the health hazards of casual sex, such as AIDS and other diseases.

The leaflets - in Polish, Ukrainian, Russian, English, German and Spanish - will advise on the use of condoms.

The football tournament kicks off June 8 in Warsaw and runs through to July 1 in Poland and in Ukraine.
