The project looking into the levels of passion and knowledge of European football fans will also delve into the mind of supporters during the tounament's fixtures

15 per cent of England fans have named their pets after their favourite player of the national side, according to research conducted by Sharp FanLabs.

The study, which also found that 30% of Russia supporters would give up sex for a whole month if it meant they could see their team become European champions, has been conducted ahead of this year's Euro 2012 tournament in Ukraine and Poland.

Delving into just how obsessed the football fan can be, FanLabs’ latest initiative looks at the levels of passion and in-depth knowledge amongst fans around the continent and the findings have been fascinating.

80% of Poland supporters insist they will decorate their own houses and cars in their national colours in celebration of a tournament victory.

To further the research, FanLabs will park up a unique truck at each and every Euro 2012 fixture to discover more about the feelings and experiences of a football fan during a match.

A total of 16 seats within the respective stadium will be equipped with special headsets to measure brain activity and relay the information back to the truck to give a true and live insight into the mind of a football fan in the heat of the action.

For your chance of winning four pairs of "FANtastic" tickets to the opening game between Poland and Greece in Warsaw on June 8 simply take the Sharp FanLabs test at www.sharpfanlabs.com between February 29 and March 14.
