Renovation of the arena located near the Częstochowa Stradom train station is already underway
Currently, the club building is being renovated. Funds for this purpose in the amount of $232,000 (PLN 1.1 million) were obtained from the civic budget. It will be enlarged by an additional floor and extended by 12 meters. It will house media rooms, a VAR room, conference rooms, and offices. Sports and medical facilities will also be expanded, to be used by coaches, physiotherapists, and, most importantly, players. The planned completion date is November 30th, 2022. Interestingly, the most important stages of the reconstruction are yet to come.
In October, it was possible to select a contractor for the modernization of the drainage systems, the heating of the pitch, the replacement of the turf, and the installation of new lighting. It became the InterHall company from Katowice. The company is well known in Czestochowa, as it was previously responsible for adapting Rakow’s stadium to PKO Ekstraklasa requirements. The cost of these works will amount to $1.1 million (PLN 5.2 million). Nearly all of this amount (5 million) was obtained from the state program Polski Ład. The rest will be subsidized by the city from its own funds. If there are no delays, the Katowice-based company should complete this part of the investment by February 7th, 2023.
Skra currently plays its home matches in Belchatow, nearly 80 kilometers from Częstochowa. GIEKSA Arena served a similar function during the reconstruction of the facility at Limanowskiego Street. At that time, Raków was forced to play matches as a host outside the city near Jasna Gora for nearly two seasons. However, Skra’s authorities would not like their wandering to last so long and are looking for ways to return to “Loreta” as soon as possible.
Bearing in mind that it will be necessary to expand the stands and do more modernization work, they came up with the idea of raising the needed capital through crowdfunding. However, this will not be a pioneering solution among sports clubs. In 2019, Wisla Krakow issued shares worth a total of $845,400 (PLN 4 million), which sold out in less than 24 hours. At the time, less than 9,000 fans acquired 5% of the White Star’s shares. The money raised was needed by the massively indebted company for its current operations and to pay off overdue debts. Skra has no such problems, but the involvement of fans in financing further stages of the renovation could be a good way to make a quick comeback.
Of course, for those who most generously support the collection, there will be corresponding benefits in the form of investor packages. Depending on the number of shares purchased, one will be able to receive an investor certificate, access to a closed investor group on Facebook, and even a pass for the team’s first full season after the reconstruction of the arena on Loretto Street is completed. More details are expected to be announced by the club soon. Currently, Skra occupies the penultimate place in Fortuna 1 Liga losing just a point to the safe 15th place.
