Poland’s Prime Minister Announces
New Support For Polish Football

PKO Bank Polski, Totalizator Sportowy and its LOTTO brand extended their cooperation with Ekstraklasa for another two years. – The government is working on an important partner joining the group of sponsors – announced Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during a press conference devoted to sponsorship agreements with Ekstraklasa.

 We all know that football is not only a sport. It is joy, emotions and pride. Preparation time is important. For it to be carried out well, resources, infrastructure and support are needed, emphasized Mateusz Morawiecki.

Ekstraklasa partners
The new sponsorship agreements assume that PKO Bank Polski will remain the title sponsor for Ekstraklasa, and Totalizator Sportowy and its Lotto brand – the main partner. Another important partner is to join the group of sponsors in July, who will support all Ekstraklasa clubs – Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced: – This will make pride, when Polish sportsmen win, visit our homes more often – noted the head of the Polish government.

Wider cooperation
The new contracts signed between PKO Bank Polski and Totalizator Sportowy and Ekstrakslasa are not only tightening but also wider cooperation. PKO Bank Polski as the titular partner will be present at all stadiums and match broadcasts. The Bank will promote Polish football in social media, among others, and also engage young football talents through awards. This is an investment for years – Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki noted: – The prospect of training young people is a perspective for at least a decade and therefore the funds that we will engage must serve young players and clubs – said the Prime Minister

Totalizator Sportowy and the LOTTO brand, the main partner of Ekstraklasa, has plans for the league’s communication to be wider than before. Traditional match broadcasts will be used, but also electronic media. The number of the month will also appear – this is a new category of the player of the month. At the end of the tournaments, the selected player will be awarded the title of the Season Number.

The first games will be held on July 23
The first matches in the new season of PKO Bank Polski Ekstraklasa will take place on 23 July. 18 teams will take part in the competition. Teams will play a total of 306 matches, and there will be nine games in each of the 34 rounds.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wished all footballers many wins.  It would be a great joy if Polish clubs were successful – said the head of the government. – I believe they can. At first they were modest, and over the years they may be such successes as Górnik Zabrze and other Polish clubs enjoyed 50 years ago. I believe in it very deeply, added Prime Minister Morawiecki.
