The contractor that was in charge of building a stadium in the Polish city of Wroclaw ahead of the 2012 European football championships has been fired.
Rafal Dutkiewicz, the city’s mayor, revealed he has cancelled an agreement with building firm Mostostal.
He said the company was running months behind schedule and the stadium would not be finished in time for the tournament, which Poland will co-host with Ukraine.
The brand new stadium will have a capacity of 41,737 and will host three group matches during the 2012 championships.
A new construction firm will be appointed in January, and Dutkiewicz said he hopes the stadium will be ready by summer 2011.
Along with Wroclaw, the other cities in Poland to host matches are Warsaw, Poznan and Gdansk.
