The article discusses the revitalization program for the railroad stations in Poland as the Union des Associations Européennes de Football (UEFA) Euro 2012 football championship approaches. There is a concern about the division of tasks, with PKP SA in charge of the station buildings and infrastructure, manager PKP PLK on platforms, subways, and footbridges, and local authorities on stations without commercial exploitation, because it may lead to potential open access operators using station facilities on fair terms.
