FKS Stal Mielec S.A. unites the entire Mielec football community

A new stage in the training of young players in Mielec is coming! As of today, the three entities FKS Stal Mielec S.A., Szkoła Mistrzostwa Sportowego im. Grzegorza Lato w Mielcu and SMS Stal Mielec are joining forces!

We train – we educate – we teach.

In order to provide very good conditions for combining sport with education, FKS Stal Mielec S.A. came up with an initiative to cooperate with two existing Schools of the Championship of Sport in Mielec, i.e. UKS SMS Mielec run by Marek Chamielec and Zbigniew Hariasz, and SMS Stal Mielec run by Jacek Cyganowski and Paweł Mrozik. As part of the cooperation signed, we are beginning to create a strong football environment in our city centred around the only representative of the Subcarpathian region at the highest level of competition – the top division PGE FKS Stal Mielec. By virtue of the agreement, the best players from both schools will have the opportunity to train in groups of the PGE FKS Stal Mielec Academy, and each willing player of the club’s Academy will be able to combine playing at the club with studying at the SMS, which will allow for additional individual development of the players.

– Today’s date is extremely important for football in our region and the development of young players. The project created by FKS Stal Mielec S.A. on cooperation with Schools of the Championship of Sport provides an opportunity for the best football adepts to train under the wings of PGE FKS Stal Mielec Academy coaches. We are convinced that this will have an impact on healthy rivalry between players and, consequently, on their even better development. Training at the PGE FKS Stal Mielec Academy for young footballers from our region is the best direction on the way to the PGE FKS Stal Mielec Premier League team. The recently concluded 2022/2023 PKO BP Ekstraklasa season showed that already a few of our youth players got a chance to make their debut in the top division, and another few got the opportunity to train with the first team under the guidance of coach Kamil Kieres’ training staff. The cooperation undertaken will also provide our players with the choice of education in two Schools of the Sports Championship, which will translate into raising the educational quality of the players. FKS Stal Mielec S.A., Szkoła Mistrzostwa Sportowego im. Grzegorza Lato and SMS Stal Mielec will make every effort to ensure the best development of our young players, both athletically and educationally,” said Jacek Klimek, President of the Management Board of FKS Stal Mielec S.A.

– We are delighted to be able to sign a very important agreement today between the three largest centres training players in Mielec. This agreement will allow us to significantly improve the quality of training in our city, and thus prepare our alumni to represent the first team of PGE FKS Stal Mielec. We are also happy that our players will be able to take advantage of the offer to study at the Mielec Schools of the Sports Championship – the additional classes they will be able to take advantage of will significantly affect the quality of training – said Marcin Gancarczyk, Director of the PGE FKS Stal Mielec Academy.

– As the director of the PGE FKS Stal Mielec Sports Championship Schools, I would like to say that it is a great honour for us to be able to continue our cooperation with such a prestigious and historically rich club as PGE FKS Stal Mielec, which is sealed by the agreement signed today. This cooperation is valuable to us as it will enable us to educate both great footballers and knowledge-rich students. For my part, I will make every effort to ensure that our cooperation is constructive and takes place in a friendly atmosphere. I am convinced that further cooperation will give satisfaction to both sides and will bring tangible results. As the director of the sports championships school, my dream is for my students to join the ranks of the top-class team of Stal Mielec and proudly represent the school, the club and the city on the national and international arena,” said Alicja Mrozik

We encourage you to familiarise yourself with the offer and to join the partner schools of the FKS Stal Mielec S.A. club.
