Current season

TS Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała (Polish pronunciation: [pɔdbɛˈskʲidʑɛ ˈbʲɛlskɔ ˈbʲawa]) is a football club based in Bielsko-Biała, Poland.


The club was essentially founded on 11 July 1997,[1] although it can trace its roots back to 1907. That year Bielitzer Fussball Klub (FK Bielitz) was established, in the town of Bielitz, Austria-Hungary, then dominated by ethnic Germans and so was the club. In 1911 the club was renamed to Bielitz-Bialaer Sport Verein (BBSV). Since 1920 the town, known henceforth as Bielsko, belonged to Poland. In 1936 the club changed its German name to Polish Bielsko-Bialskie Towarzystwo Sportowe Bielsko (BBTS Bielsko). In 1968 it was merged with KS Włókniarz (founded in 1911). The third ancestor, DKS Komorowice, was founded in 1995. Said clubs were merged altogether in 1997 to form TS Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała. It currently plays in the top Polish football league, the Ekstraklasa, promoted as the first club from the town in the 2010–11 season.
