Open shops in Austria on Sunday for Football Euro 2008

football euro 2008The UEFA European Football Championship 2008 in Austria and Switzerland brings not only the best football nations, a lot of football fans, and huge amounts of journalists to our country.

The huge football event now also brings open shops on a Sunday.

The discussion if shops should open on Sunday or not, lasted several months. Usually all shops are closed. This is tradition in Austria.

But every traditon has its end: now shops are allowed to open for 6 hours on a Sunday, between 12:00am and 6:00pm.

The negotations were tough and long. The mayor of Vienna is very satisfied with the result. But he made it clear that shops must close again on Sunday, when the UEFA European Football Championship is over.
