The Polish FA and Ekstraklasa clubs agreed to extend the league to 18 teams.

The Polish Football Association (PZPN) and league governing body Ekstraklasa S.A. reached an agreement to extend the top league by two teams in connection with earlier decisions of the Polish Olympic Committee’s Arbitration Tribunal. Clubs accused of match-fixing, Korona Kielce and Zaglebie Lubin, appealed against the decision on relegation. Yet the decision is postponed to August 6th.

Initially the league was supposed to start last weekend, but since it was not sure which clubs are eligible to play, the first two match days had been suspended. Today’s agreement opens the door to the delayed start with the teams in question, although it hasn’t been decided who will pay for the increased costs: Supposedly about 20 million Polish zloty (6,5 million euros).

Regardless of the Tribunal’s future verdict the competition will be resumed on August 8th, as confirmed by PZPN vice-president Eugeniusz Kolator.
