U.S. and Polish troops aided by civilian rescue teams are practicing anti-contamination measures against mass destruction weapons in preparation for the 2012 European Football Championship, local media reported on Tuesday.

The exercise, codenamed Epifaktor 2011, is focused on defence against biological and chemical attacks.

Earlier Tuesday, the participants, among them 50 Illinois National Guards to aid Polish security teams during the championship, were visited by Polish military chief of staff Mieczyslaw Cieniuch and Illinois National Guard commander William Enyart.

The Euro 2012 soccer championship, to be hosted by Poland and Ukraine from June 8 to July 1, 2012, will take place in four Polish cities of Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw and Poznan as well as four Ukrainian cities of Kiev, Lvov, Donetsk and Kharkov.
