Ekstraklasa | Poland - an overview

The Poland Ekstraklasa is the top level of men’s professional football in Poland. Known as the PKO BP Ekstraklasa for the 2019/20 season due to a sponsorship deal with the Polish PKO Bank. There are 16 teams that contest the right to be crown the Ekstraklasa champion. A 30-game home and away round-robin tournament is played to determine the season split. At the end of the opening round-robin, the league is split into two groups. The top eight teams enter the Championship round, where they play for the league title. The bottom eight teams go into the Relegation round, where they fight to stay in the league. Relegation from the Ekstraklasa feeds into the I liga. The bottom three teams are relegated. There is no promotion from the Poland Ekstraklasa, but the top team qualifies for the UEFA Champions League, with the runner up entering the 2nd stage qualifying round. Third and fourth qualify for the Europa League. One further Europa League place is determined by domestic cup competition.
