Mirosław Drzewiecki, Sports and Tourism Minister:
During a conference held at the headquarters of the Polish Olympic Committee in Warsaw, Sports and Tourism Minister Mirosław Drzewiecki officially introduced Marcin Herra as the new president of the PL 2012 company, which will be in charge of coordinating all projects related to hosting the Euro 2012 European soccer championships in Poland.

"The government and the Organizational Committee chaired by Prime Minister Donald Tusk want to work with the PL 2012 company, which will take care of the coordination and organization of the event, and with the Polish soccer association (PZPN), the primary partner in relations with UEFA. The project cannot succeed without this three-way cooperation.

"Mr. Marcin Herra will have as many associates as he needs. We have to build not only stadiums, but also roads and airports. Herra will work with all ministers. He will be the one to identify whatever needs fixing. I am counting on young people who have performed well in business and know how to tie up loose ends.

"The work on Euro 2012 has picked up speed lately. The championships will definitely take place in Poland and Ukraine. Euro 2012 is a priority for the government of Donald Tusk, as testified to by our efforts. We have unveiled the designs of stadiums and the means of financing the stadiums and now we are starting to carry out the plans we have adopted.

"The stadiums will be the thing that soccer supporters remember, regardless of whether they are supporters who come to Poland in four years or those who follow Euro 2012 matches on TV. That is why during the preparations for Euro 2012 we will pay the greatest attention to the construction of sports venues, as these will go on to become landmarks of the Euro 2012 host cities and Poland.

"I abide by our earlier declarations to do our best to have the championships take place at six stadiums in Poland. We will lobby for this and I am confident our efforts will end in success.

"Let's not forget about the future of soccer and the rest of Polish sports at a lower level, especially among the youngest athletes. By 2012, we will have carried out the project to provide the 2,000 multifunctional sports fields that the prime minister announced in his policy speech. This is a crucial initiative when it comes to encouraging people to take up sport."
