PGE Skra Bełchatów


PGE Skra Bełchatów’s history dates back to the 1930s. Though it is hard to believe, the dominant discipline of the sports club was initially football - with the volleyball team being founded almost 3 decades later, in 1957.

Over the years, Bełchatów gained momentum as a volleyball club and managed to reach the second tier of Polish domestic volleyball in the 1990s. The team was promoted to the highest league of Polish volleyball (PlusLiga) in the 2001/2002 season and have since won 8 Polish Championships, 6 Polish Cups, 2 Polish Super Cups, 3 Champions League medals, 3 World Club Cup medals and a long list of individual player awards.

Today PGE Skra is seen as one of the best teams in Poland. With the players and coaches being seen as the creators of the club’s history, its fate lies in their hands on the road to success on both a European and World level!
