Government to expand program for construction football pitch roofs
Public investment funding in Poland is not only limited to road and rail but also includes sporting infrastructure. Financing for sporting projects from the government budget takes place through programs launched by the Ministry of Sport, which this year includes the Program of Investments of Particular Importance for Sport, which aims to develop the base of sports facilities for Polish elite sports, provide appropriate conditions for instruction and training, prepare national teams and hold competitive events. Government funding is also available through the Sporting Poland – Program for local sport infrastructure development. This program is directed at supporting the implementation of investment projects for sporting facilities which are publicly available for sporting activities across the country. In addition to this, the government is also offering a program this year for the construction of roofing for football pitches that provide year-round training and instruction. The program is part of a wider concept formulated by the government for the development of football in Poland.
