The Prime Minister emphasised that over the last 4 years the government has invested over PLN 2.5 billion in about 6.5 thousand sports facilities. We want to make Polish football famous again. We must nurture the talents like the ones that once grew up here. It is a good time for Poland, so there must be a good time for Polish football the Prime Minister added recalling the successes of the former football team Stal Mielec.

The pilot edition of this programme is the first such nationwide project which launches and supports investments in roofing structures over football fields, and thus is in line with the government’s strategy for the development of Polish football.

The programme will be financed by the Physical Education Development Fund.

Already in November this year, the first co-financing agreements will be concluded with entities qualified for the programme and construction works will commence.

We support sports, and we support football, so that we make the fans happy at national and club matches. I am convinced that with our programme of promoting young talents, we will return Polish football to its former glory and I wish this to all Poles Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said.
