Burgas Municipality has started building a new sports complex "Izgrev" in the "Izgrev" district of the city, said from the press office of the local administration. The complex will take the place of the old sports grounds behind RUM Veleka and is built on municipal land area of 14 490 sq m. Its value is 2 million, and the deadline for completion is by the end of 2009.
On the territory of the complex will be built a two-storey building with locker rooms, bathrooms and administrative part, school, two rooms for general physical preparation and a doctor`s office. 40% of the land will be occupied by green areas. The rest will be 2 separate football grounds, 3 tennis courts, a playground for basketball, volleyball, sheltered site for table tennis, combination playground, and outdoor fitness. The complex will include golf and petanque - a popular French game with balls. All sports grounds will be surrounded by fences, that are resistant of the harms of balls and of the wet climate of Burgas.
Permanent lighting will allow the practice of sport also in the dark part of the day. Last month the city opened a sports hall, realized through public-private partnership between the chain Billa and the municipality.
