🇵🇱 POLAND 🇵🇱
In Poland, the football championship was established in 1927. For a long time it was dominated by the two big Silesian teams, Górnik Zabrze and Ruch Chorzów, both of which had 14 championship titles. Then came clubs such as Wisla Krakow, Legia Warsaw and Lech Poznan.
The championship is contested in two phases. The sixteen best Polish teams meet twice in the first phase. At the end of this phase, the sixteen teams are divided into two pools, the first eight play for the title, the last eight for the relegation pool. The teams meet once again and the points from both phases are added together. The team with the most points at the end of the two phases is crowned champion and qualifies for the Champions League. Finally, the 2nd, 3rd and winner of the Polish Cup go to the Europa League. The last two are relegated to the second division.
