Liga Firm Rzeszów becomes an EFBLU member

27 July 2018 /

European Football Business Leagues United is very pleased to welcome Liga Firm Rzeszów from Poland as its newest member!

"European Football Business Leagues United is based in Poland and I am very happy that one more Polish business league decided to join our project. Liga Firm Rzeszów is a very professional organization and I am sure we will have a great partnership going forward. We have already been collaborating with LFR for a while and their the then champions Zakład Metalurgiczny "WSK Rzeszów" have not only participated in our EFBLU European Tour 1 in Riga, but have also won the silver medals there. I am looking forward to seeing their current champions MB Aerospace in our next tournament EFBLU European Cup 2 which will take place in the Slovenian alpine resort Kranjska Gora in September," EFBLU President Pawel Dimow commented.

Arkadiusz Szydełko, the manager of Liga Firm Rzeszów, was also excited: "As organizers of football competitions for companies based in the city of Rzeszów and its vicinity, we are very positive about the EFBLU project which aims to bring together football business leagues from all over Europe. Now the teams in our league will be more motivated because good performances will give them chances to show their skills to a wider audience. Being a member of the European Football Business Leagues United will also raise the reputation of our league and will encourage more teams to join our competitions."

Liga Firm Rzeszów (LFR) is a football league for companies and institutions from the Podkarpackie region in the southeastern part of the country. Since its establishment on the Rzeszów market in 2014, LFR has already completed 8 league seasons with the participation of more than 30 teams, including some of the world's largest companies like Deloiite, BorgWarner or Pratt & Whitney.

The league tries to implement new technical solutions each season. For example, live video coverage of every game with the use of Broadcast Live 1080p and VAR systems was introduced in 2017. In the same year, LFR also brought into use cumulative statistics which evaluate the individual form of every player on the basis of his stats (goals, assists, shots on goal, shots off target and blocks).

Currently, work is underway on a new version of the league's website with the aim to implement further innovations.

The level of football in Liga Firm Rzeszów is also pretty high and the second place of their Autumn/Winter 2017/18 champions Zakład Metalurgiczny "WSK Rzeszów" at the strong EFBLU European Tour 1 in the Latvian capital of Riga is perfect proof of that. The best goals of the recently completed Spring/Summer 2018 season come as further proof. You can see them in the below video:
