    (Adds futures, detail, company news) LONDON, July 3 (Reuters) - European stocks were seen opening mixed on Friday ahead of economic survey data later in the session, with focus on the Greek debt crisis heading into a crunch vote at the weekend. As angry and uncertain voters prepare for a referendum on Sunday that could decide Greece's future in Europe, the International Monetary Fund delivered a stark warning on Thursday of the huge financial hole facing the country. A new opinion poll on Greece's bailout referendum pointed to a closely balanced result in the vote, and gave a slight lead for the Yes campaign in favour of the bailout. "Attention will be pinned on Greece and this is likely to see investors cautious as we head into the weekend.... Even if we get a yes vote, this means the country must go back to the negotiation table and try to knock something together again," Stan Shamu, market analyst at IG, said. "However, it's a lot worse on the other side as a no vote will present a host of uncertainties that could really rattle markets... Either way, traders will need to buckle up for a tumultuous Monday." On Thursday, the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index fell 0.4 percent while the euro zone's blue-chip Euro STOXX 50 index declined 0.9 percent. The indexes are down 2.9 percent and 4.4 percent respectively so far this week as tension between Greece and its international lenders has mounted. Also on the radar was the PMI economic survey data from Italy, Germany, France, UK and the euro zone, due shortly after the open. At 0611 GMT, futures on the Euro STOXX 50, German DAX and French CAC were flat to 0.1 percent higher. Futures for the FTSE 100 were 0.2 percent lower, with traders citing disappointing PMI data out of China as fuelling the underperformance. The British blue chip index has many basic resources and mining stocks that are sensitive to the economy of China, the biggest metals consumer in the world, and activity in its services sector slowed to its lowest in five months in June, a private survey showed. Markets in the United States were shut for a holiday on Friday.
