The Polish Football Association (PZPN) (Polish: Polski Związek Piłki Nożnej; PZPN) is the governing body of football in Poland. It organizes the Polish football leagues (top division: the Ekstraklasa), the Polish Cup, the Polish SuperCup, the Polish League Cup, and the Polish national football team. It is based in the Polish capital of Warsaw.

History

The fully independent federation was established in April 1919 engulfing the autonomous Polish Football Union (PFU) that was part of the disintegrated Austrian Football Union. The PFU was established on June 25, 1911[1] in Lwow. Between 1911 and 1919 the national team of Poland has played three games all on the stadium "Czarni". The team was based mostly on the players from the city of Lwow.

In September 2008, the leadership of the PZPN was suspended by the Polish Olympic Committee for "[violating] its statutes in a continuous and flagrant fashion." [2] A year earlier, the Polish sports ministry also made an attempt to address corruption within the PZPN, but was threatened with suspension by FIFA, which forbids any form of government intervention.[3] On 30 October 2008, Grzegorz Lato became the new president of the PZPN.
