20-Year-Old Becomes Owner of Arka Gdynia

GYDNIA, Poland. July 6 (PSN) – Some big changes are taking place at Arka Gdynia just before the start of the 2017/2018 season LOTTO Ekstraklasa season.

The club, which will represent Poland in qualifying round in the UEFA Europa League has a new owner – 20-year-old Dominik Midak.

Dominik Midak bought 60 percent of Arka Gdynia’s shares and is the brand new owner of the Puchar Polski holders.

Who is this 20-year-old? His father is Wlodzimierz Midak, who made a fortune in the recycling and waste management industry before transitioning into real estate. Now he is helping his son in his business startup along with purchasing him an Ekstraklasa club.

Midak senior is also involved in a project to rebuild the port of Hel, which is expected to attract tourists throughout the year.

Despite everything, ownership changes does not mean any revolution in leadership taking place at Arka. Both chairman Wojciech Pertkiewicz and coach Leszek Ojrzynski will retain their positions at the club.

In the past season, Arka Gdynia were defending themselves from relegation. Eventually they ended the season in thirteenth place and not only avoiding relegation, but winning the Puchar Polski as well. As Polish cup winners, they are entitled to play in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers.
