UEFA is likely to get slightly lower profits from the European championship that was co-hosted by Ukraine and Poland compared to those the European football's governing body got from the tournament in Austria and Switzerland four years ago.
Tournament director Martin Kallen said on Monday that UEFA's profit from the Euro 2012 will be just under the 250 million euros ($A301 million) it got in 2008 because of additional funds UEFA had to spend on helping Poland and Ukraine organise the mega event.
Kallen said exact figures will be released sometime in 2013.
Ukraine and Poland had to significantly upgrade their infrastructure to host the three-week tournament that is Europe's biggest sporting event.
UEFA president Michel Platini said preparations for Euro 2016 were "progressing well" after a meeting of the organising committee in Lille.
