Łódź city council confirmed that an additional 4 million PLN have been made available for the expansion of the sports training facilities at ul. Minerska.
The original budget was not sufficient to fund the proposal submitted by the lowest bidding contractor which amounted to just over 12 million PLN. Thanks to savings made in last year’s budget, the sum available to fund the project now stands at 12.3 million PLN.
– With the funds being available now, we expect construction to commence in the near future. We anticipate completion within 18 months upon signing the contract-, says Paweł Bliźniuk, councilor at Łódź city council.
– At the moment, the training facility is used by 12 youth teams, or 300 young athletes in total. With the additional training fields, organization of the training schedule will be much easier and more youth teams will be able to avail of the facility-, Bliźniuk adds.
In addition to youth teams, the facility will also be available to senior sports clubs from Łódź.
