WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- The Polish league president says he has canceled what was to be the first match at the main Euro 2012 arena in Warsaw on Saturday due to police security concerns.

Andrzej Rusko said on Wednesday he was worried about the security of fans at the National Stadium, which was officially opened on Jan. 29.

The police are saying they do not have sufficient communication inside the stadium to guarantee security.

Poland champion Wisla Krakow was to play Poland Cup winner Legia Warsaw in a Super Cup match.

On June 8, the stadium is to host the opening match of the European Championship that Poland is co-hosting with Ukraine.
