The I Liga, also known as Fortuna I Liga due to sponsorship reasons, is the second-tier professional football league in Poland. It was established in 1949, initially as a regional competition, before it was reorganized into a nationwide league in 1952. The league is operated by the Polish Football Association (PZPN).

The I Liga is made up of 18 teams that compete for the championship title. The league operates on a promotion and relegation system with the top-tier Ekstraklasa and the third-tier II Liga. The top two teams at the end of each season are promoted to the Ekstraklasa, while the bottom three are relegated to the II Liga. The third-place team has a chance to secure promotion through a playoff with the 14th placed team from the Ekstraklasa.

The league runs from July to May, with teams playing 34 matches each, totalling 306 matches in the season. The matches are played in a round-robin format, with each team playing every other team both home and away. The team with the most points at the end of the season is crowned the champion.

Over the years, the I Liga has produced several teams that have gone on to achieve success in the Ekstraklasa, including Lech Poznań, Wisła Kraków, and Legia Warsaw. The league has also been a breeding ground for many talented Polish players who have gone on to represent the Polish national team and play in some of the top leagues around the world.

The I Liga is known for its competitive nature, with the promotion and relegation battles often going down to the final day of the season. It also has a strong following, with passionate fans supporting their local teams and creating a vibrant atmosphere at matches.

The I Liga has undergone several changes in its format and structure over the years to improve the competitiveness and financial stability of the teams. These changes, along with the development of infrastructure and facilities, have contributed to the growth and development of Polish football.

In recent years, the I Liga has made efforts to increase its visibility and reach, with matches being broadcast on television and online platforms. This has helped to increase the league's profile and attract more sponsors and partners.

In conclusion, the I Liga is a crucial part of the Polish football system, providing a platform for teams and players to develop and compete at a high level. It plays a key role in the growth and development of Polish football, contributing to the success of the national team and the overall popularity of the sport in the country.
