The SuperFinal is a celebration of American football in Poland, and a great occasion for the entire family to have fun. This year's SuperFinal will be held in the manner of the Super Bowl of the National Football League (NFL), in true American style. Performances by cheerleaders, incredible spectacles and contests with fantastic prizes, among many other attractions, will all be part of the fun.

Fans will be able to keep up with the action with running commentary, and they will be entertained by DJ's and dancers. As usual with American football games in Poland, everything will take place in a friendly and safe atmosphere. Fans from not just Poland, but all over Europe, will gather for the event.

Seven Topliga teams are currently fighting for the right to play in the SuperFinal. After the fourth round of regular season games, the defending champion Wrocław Panthers are at the top of the standings, with an undefeated record. A game behind them at 3-1 are the Warsaw Eagles and the Topliga newcomers, the Tychy Falcons. Both the Białystok Lowlanders and last year's runners-up, the Gdynia Seahawks, have two victories and two defeats, while Husaria Szczecin and another Topliga debutante, the Wrocław Outlaws, have yet to win a game. We will learn who the participants in SuperFinal XII will be during the weekend of June 10-11, when the Topliga semifinals will be played.

“In 2013, the Polish National Team made its debut in Łódź,” said PLFA President Jędrzej Stęszewski. “Even though we lost to the Swedes at Atlas Arena, we have very good memories of that meeting. It was the impetus for the development of the national team, which is now in final preparations for the World Games in Wrocław. It's now Łódź's turn to host the biggest event in the Polish League of American Football for the first time. We are honored that the best players in Poland will be able to show their stuff in a modern, multi-purpose arena that just opened this year. Łódź is the second-largest city ever to host the SuperFinal. We hope that SuperFinal XII will be as spectacular as the finals that were held in the National Stadium in Warsaw”
 

“Another piece of excellent news is that this year's Topliga championship game will be broadcast live on Polsat Sport's main station,” added Stęszewski. “That station will be broadcasting the Polish National Team's games as well.”
