The influx of soccer fans for the European Championships is affecting prices in Poland to a degree that could lead to a hike in interest rates.

According to Bloomberg News, soccer fans in Poland are being greeted with surging prices that threaten to quicken inflation and cloud the interest-rate outlook in the EU’s biggest eastern economy.

Poland and Ukraine are co-hosting the Euros, drawing as many as 800,000 fans to watch 16 national teams.
