1st game at Warsaw’s Euro 2012 stadium scrapped

The Polish league president says he has canceled what was to be

the first match at the Warsaw stadium to be used for this year’s

European Championship due to police security concerns.

Andrzej Rusko said Wednesday he was worried about the security

of fans at the National Stadium, which opened on Jan. 29. Police

say they do not have sufficient communication inside the stadium to

guarantee security Saturday.

Polish League champion Wisla Krakow was to play Polish Cup

winner Legia Warsaw in a Super Cup match.

On June 8, Poland plays Greece at the stadium in the opening

match of the tournament Poland is co-hosting with Ukraine.
