The Poska Hokej Liga (polish - Ekstraliga w hokeju na lodzie) is the premier ice hockey league in Poland. Previously, it was known as the I Liga or Ekstraklasa from 1927–1999, and the Polska Liga Hokejowa from 1999–2013. In 2013, it was reorganized as a limited liability company and renamed the Polska Hokej Liga.

History Edit

The championship started in 1927. At first it was a non-league system composed of regional tournaments. The tournaments had two stages. The best teams qualified to the final tournament, of which the winner was declared champion. In 1938, the Polish Ice Hockey Federation decided to reorganize the championship, by creating a league system. Those plans were abandoned due to outbreak of World War II.

The Polska Liga Hokejowa, as it is structured today, began in 1955.
