The locker room of PGE Skra Belchatow volleyball team located in the "Energy" hall at 11 Dąbrowskiego Street in Belchatow will be a modern, attractive and friendly place designed specially for the team. In short - the locker room must be worthy of the brilliant players from Skra Belchatow.

PGE Skra Bełchatów is one of the most successful volleyball teams of the last decade! Belchatow won the crown of the Polish champion eight times, and triumphed in the Polish Cup six times. Meanwhile, in the season 2011/2012 they finished second in the Champions League. Other international successes include top 3 of the most prestigious competitions of volleyball twice in Skra's history.
The team also won the Polish Super Cup, two silver medals and a bronze one in World Club Championships. PGE Skra Bełchatów is a top quality team which has the best fans in the world. Therefore, it's a great opportunity to show the world the power that lies in the fans of this beautiful sport discipline.
The history of the PGE Skra Belchatow is admirable. In the last ten years, the team from Bełchatów won eight Polish Championship titles, which makes it the most successful Polish club in the 21st century.
The RKS Skra multi-section club was founded in 1930. In the first years of its existence, the football section dominated the club, and male volleyball team wasn't created until 1957. Twenty years later, the football section was detached from the club and merged with Bełchatów Brown Coal Mine. In 1991 Bełchatów Power Station became a patron of the club and initiated the development of the volleyball team. The so-called EKS - Skra club was promoted to the second league in 1994, in 1997 it advanced to the first league, and finally in 1999 to the Series A. Unfortunately, the following year the team was relegated to Series B, but after a year-long break they returned to the newly-created Polish Volleyball League, surprising the Poles by winning the bronze medal of the Polish Championships in the season 2001/2002.
In the season 2004/2005 Bełchatów team iniatiated another successful series, which included eight Polish Championships, six Polish Cups, Polish Super Cup, three medals in the volleyball Champions League, and three medals in the World Club Championship.
Today, PGE Skra Belchatow is one of the most recognizable Polish sports brands. Its motto "More than volleyball, more than passion" shows that PGE Skra isn't all about the sporting successes, but about much more than that.

This is how the team's locker room looks now. Old-dated and distressing. It's not a place where the volleyball players can prepare for a match comfortably, nor cool off after a game. It's unfit for Champions like Skra.
This is the new, larger, personalized locker room with photos of the players and their numbers, a TV set, air conditioning, inscriptions on the walls, pictures from the matches and the color scheme referring to the club's colors. A locker room worthy of the Champions. The names of all the fans who joined the project will remind the Champions about their brilliant supporters!

- I have just made my dream come true - said Zuzanna from Konin, who has visited the new PGE Skra Bełchatów locker room, and the moment was captured on a photo… with the entire team! The Champions Locker Room project was the first of its kind ran by a Polish club through the FANS4CLUB.COM crowdsourcing platform. The national champs have decided to let their locker room undergo a refurbishment using crowdsourcing. The initiative has been a complete success - the national champs have already got a modern room at their disposal, and more than four hundred of their fans have claimed unique prizes. For twenty of Skra’s fans it was the opportunity to enter the locker room after a league game and take a picture with the team. It was on Sunday. - When I learned about this initiative I did not think twice. I have a lot of memorabilia linked to the club but this photo with the players will be one of the most precious of them all - says Kazimierz from Piotrków Trybunalski. Zuzanna from Konin, on the other hand, was straightforward in saying she has made her dream come true. - A month ago, I went to my first game in Łódź, and now I had the opportunity to meet the boys in person. The photo we took will make me remember the moment forever and I will definitely have a special place to hang it - stresses the PGE Skra fan from Konin. Anna has to travel over 230 km to get to a PGE Skra game from Kraków. - Maybe it is quite a distance to Bełchatów but you know, the things you do for the love. It was worth it to participate in this initiative and I hope that the club will soon want to refurbish something else - jokes Anna.
