Klub Sportowy Polonia (error: {{lang-xx}}: text has italic markup (help)) was a football club based in Vilnius, Lithuania. KS Polonia was formed on 18 March 1990 by Poles from Vilnius.


The Club was founded on March 18, 1990 under the name Poles Club of Lithuania "Polonia". The first president was Janusz Jaszczanin. The Vilnius club was added as the Lithuanian authorities forbade the sport club to cover all of Lithuania. In 1999 the club was called Ardena, and in 2000 he returned to the name Polonia. In the 2010 season, the club was fourth in the league (third league) and finished fourth in the league. In the 2011 season the Polish team played in the second division, which means the third level in the league pyramid. The team led by Wiktor Filipowicz took first place and promoted to Lithuanian base A Lyga. The club was also in the Lithuanian Cup where he reached the 1/8 finals. In the season 2012 Polonia took off in the first division, where at the end of the season she took 5th place. Lithuania Club Cup finals ended in 1/16 finals. On October 13, 2012, the team played a friendly match against Polonia Warsaw at the invitation of the Warsaw fans. In the following season, the club was on the verge of bankruptcy. Finally, on April 9, 2014, the Polonia Vilnius football team was withdrawn from the Lithuanian First League, which is equivalent to its solution. The cause was financial problems[1].
