CNN Brussels Bureau Chief Patricia Kelly offers a sampling of the preparations in this report, showcased by CNN Interactive's news analysis feature, y: why it matters.

Kelly visits the Belgium town of Charleroi to see how people are coping with the prospect of three Euro 2000 games coming their way. She takes viewers inside one of the "cages" police will use to hold fans who might get too rowdy. She also looks at the controversy surrounding the safety of the town stadium.
