The Olympic centre can be built in Radnóti Street

If the tender of Győr for the organization of the 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival is successful the Olympic centre can be built at the former Dózsa-court, on the sports ground of Radnóti Street. From now on, the establishment can be used by a new association, the Athletic Club of Győr.

The decision about the possibility for the organization of the 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival will be made in December. Currently the tender is being elaborated with great energy and it will reach its final form by early autumn. Péter Bolla, the Head of the Cabinet summarized the plans for Győr Plusz.

– For a successful organization it is inevitable to develop the infrastructure, but that does not mean additional expenses for the budget of the city as these developments are presented among our objectives annually. We would like to develop the extant halls; moreover we are planning to construct an Olympic centre. The sport ground of Radnóti Street – the former Dózsa-ground – would give place to it which is currently a state owned territory, but registering the trusteeship of the municipality is in progress then in the future we would like to take over the ownership from the state. In case of a successful tender the age group between 14-18 can compete in nine sports – athletics, judo, gymnastics, swimming, tennis, cycling, handball, basketball, volleyball. The representatives of the individual sports would compete in the future Olympic centre.

– We do not want to get into the trap which was unavoidable for several big cities which organized international contests. In many places such problems had to be faced that the establishments could not be utilized after the event, furthermore the maintenance costs were also very high. We are considering economic resources even during planning to avoid costly maintenance in the future. We would like to construct such an Olympic centre that is not only a suitable venue for only one event, but which could be utilized with full capacity after the Festival in 2017 – said the Head of the Cabinet about the proceedings.

In case of a successful tender it is extremely important for the city to be represented by several young sportspeople from Győr on the Youth Olympic Games. The municipality would like to urge the sport clubs to put greater emphasis on the age group under 12 – regarding the aforementioned nine sports – as in five years this age group will grow to be participants of the Olympic field.

– It is my pleasure to talk about the recent foundation of the Athletic Club of Győr (GYAC). There was a club with the same name in the sports ground of Radnóti Street until the Second World War, then after its termination the II. District put its seat to this venue. The brand new club is managed by an active and competent management with the leadership of Csaba Jungi. The club will operate with such sports which are also included in the Youth Olympic programme. Although football is not among them, due to the long traditions, GYAC will have a football branch as well. The city will be in connection with the GYAC that can use the establishment according to the contract – mentioned Péter Bolla about the new club of the sports ground of Radnóti Street, who is also very proud of the sports results of the city this year.

– Győr spends a lot of money on sports, and we are very glad that - as it can be seen from the results – this money is utilized efficiently. Due to the women’s basketball and handball team we already have two champion teams, the players of futsal present in the semi-final, not to mention the footballers who will surely end up on the podium. Besides this our teams in the second class also achieve good results along with the individual sportspeople who can also achieve nice results. In the supply teams several children pursue sports under very good circumstances, thus the youngsters can spend their free time usefully. Every club can perform according to the support we can provide for them and it is obvious that it is worth spending money on them. Győr reaches outstanding results in economy, culture, sport and innovation, and we also plan to advance in the field of recreation. It is considered to be vital to provide the chance for everybody to pursue sports: swimming, cycling, jogging. In order to achieve these aims we are considering further developments, as we would like our city to be among the firsts in every field.  I reckon that all the citizens can be proud of Győr, that can perform prominently well in today’s difficult financial situation. Our city is an example for the other settlements throughout the country, but we should not be too self-confident, we have to continue our progress to get to an even higher level – mentioned Péter Bolla, who also added that they are trying to include more sports in the programmes of the next summer’s festival.
