WARSAW, Poland. July 25 (PSN) – Polonia Warszawa will play in the 2012/2013 season edition of the Polish T-Mobile Ekstraklasa the club announced this week.
The decision to stay in the Ekstraklasa comes just days after it has been announced that the merger between Polonia Warszawa and GKS Katowice will be folded.
The proposed merger was to result in the creation of a new club, KP Katowice who would compete in the Ekstraklasa.
Ireneusz Krol, who brought Polonia from former owner Jozef Wojciechowski was the propeller of this idea. GKS Katowice fans rejected news of the merger and instead opted to protest against it. Such a negative public response has forced new Polonia owner Krol to announce his intentions of keeping Polonia in Warsaw.
However, not all is good news.
Much of the 2011/2012 Polonia Warszawa roster has already been sold, and with Krol has announcing that the club budget will only be15 million zloty does not sum up very positively for the new season. Krol also told fans that unfortunately Polonia will be fighting to avoid relegation this upcoming season.
Fans on the other hand, despite hearing the unsatisfactory news, are relieved to hear that their beloved club won’t disappear off the maps of Polish football and continue to play on in Poland’s elite.
