An Austrian construction company has pulled out of a project to build a stadium in Ukraine for Euro 2012, further threatening the country’s rights to co-host the tournament.

Both Ukraine and co-host Poland have been warned on a number of occasions by UEFA to speed up preparations for Euro 2012.

UEFA declined to comment on the latest setback but referred to a statement it released in late September, saying that “any slackening could put in doubt the organization of this tournament in these countries.”

Austria-based Alpine withdrew from the project last week after a financial dispute with the city of Lviv, where the stadium is to be built.

According to Keglevich, another €40 million is needed to complete construction in Lviv, which includes a 30,000 capacity stadium, parking lots, a sports arena and infrastructure.

Oleh Zasadnyi, the head of the Lviv’s Euro 2012 preparations department, said several construction companies have offered to build the stadium.

“We absolutely can manage to meet the deadline,” Zasadnyi said. “We estimate our chances to be chosen as host city as very high, because Lviv is one of the main cities in Ukraine.”
