Bogdanka pledges support for the Platinum Motor Lublin speedway riders for another season

Bogdanka, a leading Polish hard coal producer, will act as a strategic sponsor of the Platinum Motor Lublin speedway riders in the upcoming season. The agreement for the next season was signed at the Company’s head office, on Thursday, 14 December 2023. The history of Bogdanka’s support for Lublin’s speedway dates back to 2010, and the current decision to continue the cooperation was made on the basis of a variety of factors, including an analysis of the sponsorship project’s effectiveness.

We are extremely proud to continue to serve as a strategic sponsor of the Motor Lublin speedway club. We appreciate the fact that the tremendous work and determination put in by people at the club translate into fantastic athletic performance. Speedway is not only one of the most popular sports in the Lublin region, but also one that brings together people of different generations

said Kasjan Wyligała, President of the LW Bogdanka Management Board

We consider our involvement in the sponsorship of Motor Lublin not only as an investment in sports, but also as a means for building strong relations with the local community. We believe that by extending our support we will contribute to the continued development and success of Motor Lublin’s speedway riders

said Artur Wasilewski, Vice-President of the LW Bogdanka Management Board for Economic and Financial Affairs

This agreement is of great strategic significance to us. We know that motorcycle speedway is an expensive sport in which it would be difficult to achieve success without the support of sponsors such as Bogdanka. For this reason, on behalf of the club’s management board, training staff and riders, I wish to extend our gratitude to the LW Bogdanka management board and the whole mining community, and I hope that this cooperation will continue for many years to come

said Jakub Kępa, President of the Platinum Motor Lublin speedway club

LW Bogdanka is the most modern and efficient coal mine in Poland. Over many years of our operation, Bogdanka has come to be recognized as a patron of culture and sports in the Lublin Region. This year, the Company has supported more than 30 sporting events by providing financial assistance to more than 1,500 athletes.
