Warsaw's Euro 2012 Stadium Ready for First Match


Warsaw's mayor says all security concerns have been addressed and the stadium that will host the opening match of this year's European Championship is ready to stage its first game.

Poland will play Portugal in a friendly at the National Stadium in Warsaw on February 29.

The venue will host Poland's opening game of Euro 2012 against Greece on June 8.

The stadium was due to host a league match earlier this month but it was scrapped when police said they were unable to guarantee security because of communication problems inside the stadium.

Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz says police have now given their approval for the stadium to be used.

The stadium was opened January 29, six months behind schedule, following a series of glitches in construction.
