The new sports venue "Güntner Arena" in Tata, Hungary, was officially handed over on 28 July 2017. Tata's mayor, Mr Jószef Michel, and Tamás Schwarczenberger, authorised representative at Güntner Tata, signed a four-year agreement on the support of the local Tata Athletic Club (TAC).
Long-term agreement with the Tata Athletic Club
The company has already supported the construction of the sports hall that opened its doors in late 2016 during the past three years; being the largest sponsor, Güntner had the honour to become also the name patron of the new sports venue. The hall with its sports area of 1,500 m2 does offer not only a sports facility for three schools but is also used as training location for the local handball and volleyball clubs. The facility can also be used for events such as exhibitions, concerts and, of course, sporting competitions. With the agreement, Güntner continues its commitment to local sports development and, in particular, its support of the Tata Athletic Club that has already been provided for more than two decades now.
Promotion of the youth – an investment in the future
This promotion is part of the company's philosophy: The Güntner company sees itself not only as employer and economic factor at its different sites but also as part of the social infrastructure. This is why Güntner is strongly committed to the promotion of children, local institutions and sports. At the Tata Athletic Club, all of these areas are covered; by promoting the sports club, Güntner supports the health of Tata's children. Also Ottó Lázár, President of TAC, praised the commitment of the sponsors. The sports hall could not have been built without their support.
