Bogdanka becomes the Main Sponsor of LUK Lublin volleyball players

Lubelski Węgiel Bogdanka has become the Main Sponsor of the LUK Lublin team, which plays daily in PlusLiga, the highest class of men's volleyball competition in Poland. The agreement, signed on 17 February at the company's headquarters, will last until the end of the 2022/2023 season.

Bogdanka, in accordance with its strategy, has been supporting both youth, amateur and professional sports for years. We know that there are many volleyball fans among the miners. Currently, volleyball is the second most popular sport in Poland, and games in Lublin attract the second largest audience. The LUK Lublin club already has great potential, and with the support of the mine it will be able to continue to develop and achieve further sports successes. We appreciate the fact that despite the club's short history, the Lublin volleyball players are already successfully competing against the national elite. Cooperation with LUK Lublin is also an affirmation of our support for the entire region from which we come,

said Kasjan Wyligała, President of the LW Bogdanka SA Management Board.

Cooperation with Lubelski Węgiel Bogdanka is an invaluable support in the development of the Club. Our new Main Sponsor guarantees peace of mind in our activities and allows us to set ever more ambitious goals. Lubelski Węgiel Bogdanka is one of the most recognizable patrons of sports. I am convinced that this reputation consists of, among other things, a responsible business approach and unfailing intuition. I would like to believe that the most solid basis of our cooperation is the similarities in our understanding of the broad concepts of stability, responsible development and creativity. Thus, we perceive the Company's support as an endorsement of the path we are taking,

noted Krzysztof Skubiszewski, LUK Lublin president.

Bogdanka's volleyball projects are joined today by a top-class club. So far, we have successfully supported volleyball players from Avia Świdnik, a top TAURON 1st league club, and ChKS Arka Chełm, one of the best teams in the 2nd league. Last year, the mine carried out a total of 85 sponsorship projects, 32 of which were related to sports. Our support extended to 1,460 athletes from our region. We hope that together with the fans and the mine crew we will soon enjoy more successes of the LUK Lublin club,

says Dariusz Dumkiewicz, Vice-President of the Management Board for Sales and Investments at LW Bogdanka SA.
