The teams of eq system and BMZ Poland were the first who entered the pitch at the famous Silesian Stadium in Chorzów to resume the season of Sportowa Liga Firm – Silesia. The game between the 3 Liga teams kicked off at 18:30 and eq system's Jacek Borowiecki scored the first goal after the long break in the 5th minute. His team, however, was not able to held the lead and lost the match by 2-4. You can watch the highlights below:
