There is an annual football championship in Poland called the Ekstraklasa, which is a top-flight competition for Polish teams. It is now known as PKO Ekstraklasa, thanks to its sponsor PKO Bank Polski. Until recently, the league was known as Liga 1 but now is known as PKO Ekstraklasy. In order to promote the sport, PKO Bank Polski has become the main sponsor.
The Ekstraklasa league consists of 18 clubs and consists of nine rounds. Each club plays their opponents twice during the course of the season, which lasts for 34 games. There are also champion groups for the top eight teams, and relegation groups for the bottom eight. In 2016, the league had two different phases, and each had between sixteen and 20 teams. The current season is the longest, lasting 296 games.
The Polish league has thirty games per season, with each team playing their opponents twice. The top eight teams compete for the championship while the bottom eight battle for survival, as they face relegation. The Ekstraklasa is the highest level of football in the country, and the current champion, Legia Warszawa, is the current champion. This competitive level of football in Poland is played year-round, beginning in August and concluding in May.
Since its launch, the Ekstraklasa has gained widespread popularity and has been broadcast on TV, radio, and online. In addition to live coverage, Ekstraklasa matches are broadcast on the internet, and are broadcast on TV, radio, and on radio. Currently, there are four television channels in Poland that air the Polish Ekstraklasa, along with several other major sports channels.
