MKS Pogoń Szczecin (Polish pronunciation: [ˌɛmkaˈɛs ˌpɔɡɔɲ ˈʂt͡ʂɛt͡ɕin]) is a Polish professional football club, based in Szczecin, Poland. The club was founded by Poles from Lwów (now Lviv, Ukraine), who had been transferred west after the Soviet annexation of Poland's eastern territories in 1945. The founders of Pogoń Szczecin had previously been supporters of Pogoń Lwów and the colors of their new club reflect their old club. Polonia Bytom and Odra Opole were likewise founded or revived by the former inhabitants of Lwów.

The club played in the Ekstraklasa as recently as the 2006-2007 season but placed last and were relegated. While normally it would have joined the second division, due to financial problems, the club was demoted two levels further, to the Zachodniopomorska (Western Pomerania) Group of the Fourth League. The club was promoted to the Zachodnia (Western) group of the new II Liga (formerly the Third League) for the 2007-08 season. The club earned promotion to the Polish First League after finishing 2nd in Western Group of Polish Second League in 2008-2009 season. Finally Pogon returned to top division after finishing First League as runner-up in 2011-12 season.
