Wisla make it a hat-trick

Wisla Kraków have been confirmed as the champions of Poland for the third year in succession.

Wisla Kraków have been confirmed as the champions of Poland for the third year in succession.

Zurawski seals it
The title was secured courtesy of Polish international Maciej Zurawski’s last-gasp goal against Górnik Zabrze today which ensured a 2-1 victory for the home team. However, despite the triumph, certain sections of the Wisla support were unhappy at the club's prospects for the future – having already been dismayed at perceived repeated failure in European football and a recent 5-1 defeat by Legia Warszawa.

Budget
Wisla's attempt to reach the 2005/06 UEFA Champions League group stage from the second qualifying round will be hampered if Zurawski leaves and the playing budget is decreased, both of which could happen.

Katowice down
Meanwhile, Korona Kolporter Kielce won promotion to the Ekstraklasa for the first time and will take part in an extended 16-team top flight next time around. GKS Katowice have been demoted while several other teams are still battling to avoid the relegation play-offs.
