August the 31st, 2023 – A four million euro investment for Croatian sport infrastructure is on the cards, and it isn’t without reason when you take into account this country’s enormous sporting achievements.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Tourism and Sport Minister Nikolina Brnjac has stated that investment in Croatian sport infrastructure continues to be a “special focus of the Croatian Government because adequate sport infrastructure is an important prerequisite in order to make sport across all parts of Croatia equally accessible to everyone, from recreational players to top athletes.”
Brnjac added that this is why the amount for this tender is increased each and every year and that she’s happy that Croatia has some truly excellent infrastructure projects from all over the country for facilities spanning all sports, from open training grounds, football and tennis courts, to sports halls and more.
“Since 2018, we have co-financed the renovation or construction of more than 250 sport facilities in the amount of more than fourteen million euros, and we’re going to continue with such investments,” Brnjac stated.
In addition to the implementation of this particular tender, an additional step forward for investment in Croatian sport infrastructure was also made by the new Law on Sports, which stipulates that the government can declare certain sport buildings as buildings of national interest. Back at the beginning of June this year, the Croatian Government made the decision on the first of such buildings at the suggestion of umbrella sports associations. The government then declared the city stadiums in Zagreb and Split, Maksimir and Poljud, sports buildings of national interest, and provided 27 million euros for their renovation in the coming period.
