The largest private multifunctional sports complex “LNK Sporta Parks” is under construction in Valdlauči, on the bank of the Daugava River, on a 65 000 m2 area.
The complex will include three modern full-size football pitches, two of them with the highest quality natural grass and one with the latest generation artificial turf; beach volleyball, basketball, 3×3 basketball, streetball, floorball, beach football and smaller football pitches will also be built. The complex will be able to accommodate more than 300 people at a time. “LNK Sporta Parks” will also feature a modern children’s playground. The opening of the sports complex is planned for summer next year.
A conference hall, changing rooms, showers and other technical facilities for sports events will also be built in Valdlauči. The developer of the project is LNK Properties, construction works are performed by LNK Industries. The company LNK Properties has specialised in the construction of industrial parks and residential buildings, and “LNK Sporta Parks” will be its first sports facility.
“This is the most ambitious private sports infrastructure project to have been implemented in Latvia. With its construction, LNK Properties will not only provide many children, young people and adults with the opportunity to play sports to their full potential, but also acquire new construction technologies and experience. In the future, similar sports complexes could appear in other parts of Latvia. Our experience could also be interesting for representatives of the sports industry in neighbouring countries,” says Pāvels Broitmans, Member of the Board of LNK Properties.
“LNK Sporta Parks” will be a unique centre of sports life in Latvia, and it will also have a social function. The investment in this sports centre is a direct contribution to the development of sport in Latvia, as it will not be a business project and no profit is expected from this complex. The new sports facility will also offer support and discount programmes, whereby the use of the infrastructure will be free of charge for certain children’s and youth groups. The children’s playground will be free of charge. The total investment in the development of the complex is 5 million euro.
“We at LNK companies have been developing long-term support programmes for the Latvian student basketball team, beach volleyball teams, boxing, football and other sports. This year, we took part in the Latvian Olympic Committee’s “Olympic Draft” project, supporting young and talented athletes. “LNK Sporta Parks” is therefore a logical continuation of our sports support programmes. In order to enable as many people as possible to participate in sport activities, a modern sports infrastructure, such as the one now being built in Valdlauči, must be available,” says Broitmans.
