Media allegations surface about Stadium City in Warsaw

For weeks now, a special parliamentary commission has been probing alleged shenanigans in the process of writing a new gambling law  in Poland. This has morphed into a sideshow discussion about why the Ministry of Sport blocked a commercial development next to the National Stadium in Warsaw. There are allegations that a former minister of sport might be mixed up in the proceedings.

It was expected that along with the National Stadium, Poland’s windowshop venue for Euro 2012, a profit making mixed-use complex would be built next door so that public money wouldn’t have to be used to maintain the stadium.

With less than two years before the Euro 2012, however, Stadium City is nothing more than a design and some nice pictures. It’s looking increasingly likely that the National Stadium will not only be costly to build, but it will cost extra millions to maintain after the lights dim on Euro 2012.
