The 2012–13 I Liga football league will see 18 teams competing for the first two places in the table which give promotion from this Polish second-level league to the Ekstraklasa 2013–14 season, whilst the bottom four teams will face relegation to the II Liga.

According to the competition rules, all clubs are required to field at least one youth player (born on 1992 or later and trained in Poland) in every game (except for the times when the only youth player on the roster is sent off or unable to continue playing, in which case he can't be substituted by a senior player).[2]

On 28 February 2013 the Disciplinary Commission of the Polish FA suspended the ŁKS's license to compete in the I Liga, because of non-payment of salaries to former players.[3] Since the club's appeal was unsuccessful, on 5 April the Polish FA announced the cancellation of Warta–ŁKS game on the 22nd match day.[4] On 10 April the club announced its withdrawal from the I liga.[5] As ŁKS had already played over 50% of their games, according to the rules of I liga, they will be ranked in the final league table, with the cancelled games counted as lost 0–3.[2]

Additional notes[edit]

Before the start of the season Ruch Radzionków withdrew from 2012–13 I Liga, citing financial problems.[6] The club also withdrew its reverve team from Bytom region Klasa A (7th level).[7] However, Ruch will be able to join the 2013–14 III Liga, after a one-year suspension.[8]

Ruch's I Liga spot was taken by another Silesian club, Polonia Bytom, the highest placed team of the previous season's I Liga relegation zone.[9]
