Format[edit]

Up to the 2009-10 season with six teams in the league, the teams played each other four times per season. Thus each club was totalling 20 matches. The last place after the season got relegated while the 5th-place finisher played a two-legged relegation playoff.

For the 2010-11 season the whole women's football of Poland was reorganized. For the Ekstraliga the change was an increase from 6 teams to 10 teams. For this to happen, 2 teams from each of the two 2nd divisions were promoted directly to the premier league, and the two 3rd-place finishers played a two-legged playoff with the winner playing a two-legged playoff against the 6th-place finisher from the Ekstraliga.

For the season 2014/2015 the league was extended from ten to 12 teams. In 2015/16 after the regular season the teams were divided into a championship and relegation group. Points were added to those of the regular season.[1]
