Polonia Warsaw: An emotional goodbye

What a week it has been for Polonia Warsaw and its fans.  On Tuesday the club was denied a licence to play in the Ekstraklasa for next season due to huge debts, a decision which means Polonia will fall down the Polish league structure.   From August Polonia will play in either the 4th, 5th or […]

Polonia in the Warsaw lower leagues: 5 reasons for optimism
