2021/22 Ekstraklasa Award nominees announced

Ekstraklasa SA has announced the nominees for its end-of-season awards ceremony. 20 players and 5 coaches have been nominated for six awards, with 36 experts from the media, the Ekstraklasa, and the PZPN voting for the winners.

Two of last year’s winners are back up for their respective awards: Pogoń Szczecin’s Dante Stipica for Goalkeeper of the Year, and Raków Częstochowa’s Marek Papszun for Coach of the Year. 2018/19 winner Frantisek Plach, of Piast Gliwice, also joins Stipica amongst the nominees for the goalkeeper award.

The impressive seasons of both Lech Poznań and Raków, who both reached the final of the Puchar Polski and continue to battle for the league title, are noted, too. Lech have nine nominations, whilst Raków have six. They include the league’s top two scorers, Ivi Lopez and Mikael Ishak, who are up for the Midfielder and Striker awards respectively, as well as receiving nominations for the prestigious Player of the Year.
