Lechia Gdańsk dramatically dropped to the First League. Many players quickly found new employers. Although the team was in disarray, new coach Simon Grabowski did a great job rebuilding the team. He is now considering a promotion, although it will not be an easy task.
Lechia made an exciting announcement regarding the playoffs. officially
Only two teams will be promoted directly to the Premier League, while teams from positions 3-6 will play for promotion in the play-offs. In theory, the team in third place should have the easier task, because position in the regular season determines which game will be played at home. Therefore, you can play up to two playoff games at your own facility.
Lechia announced on Wednesday, January 3, that if it managed to qualify for the qualifiers and host the match, it would not be able to play the match at the Pulsat Plus Arena. All because of… David Podsiadlo's party.
“Due to the fact that in 2022 the Polsat Plus Arena Gdańsk is reserved for the Dawid Podsiadło concert, which will take place on 1 and 2 June 2024, which conflicts with the dates of the possible play-off matches for promotion to Ekstraklasa,” Lechia Gdańsk SA is cooperating with the operator Polsat Plus Arena Gdańsk to ensure “The optimal organization for a possible playoff match.”
Most likely, Lechia will have to play in the old stadium. “Our priority is to provide excellent conditions for both the team and the fans. We are examining the possibility of playing this match at the stadium at ul. Trauguta 29, which certainly has a symbolic meaning for the club. This unique facility has brought not only pride to our green and white community, but also unforgettable sporting emotions.” .
Of course, there is still a lot of time until this event, so there is not much to think about. The most important goal for Lechia should be to gain direct promotion, but not being in the top six cannot be ruled out.
After the autumn round, they are in fourth place in the First League table with 32 points, just three points behind seventh-placed Visla Puk. The leader is Arka Gdynia (34 points), ahead of GKS Tichy (34 points) and Motor Lublin (32 points). The point spreads are therefore minimal, so anything is still possible.
