Poland’s top league scheduled to start September 5

Poland’s Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego, LFA, is organizing a 2020 season for six of the top teams in the country with a kickoff on September 5.

The league will wind up November 7.

In its last act before the new federation in Poland, the American Football Association in Poland, ZFAP (Związek Futbolu Amerykańskiego w Polsce), takes over as the fully-recognized governing body of Polish American football, the LFA will launch a season of top division football along with a lower division.

The LFA had suspended all activities in mid March at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Wroclaw Panthers, Tychy Falcons, Warsaw Mets, Bialystok Lowlanders, Silesia Rebels and Bydgoszcz Archers will all play in a seven week season with a semifinal round and championship final on November 7.

Another lower division – LFA9 – will play in a 9 man league involving 15 teams.
