FutNet or siatkonoga in Poland is not so well-known but it is getting more fans and players every year. All football clubs in Poland are playing an amateur version of FutNet without FutNet rules.
Brief History of FutNet in Poland
FutNet in Poland was officially created by Mr. Michal Sieczko, well-known sports manager in Poland. Polish FutNet Federation „SIATKONOGA POLSKA“ was registered in 2005, the same year first Polish FutNet Championship took place. Great Slovakian players came to the city of Zgierz to make an exhibition show. Five Polish Championships editions have been organized in Poland until now.
We do not have registered players, our competitions are for amateurs. Around 40 teams have played FutNet in Polish Championship which is organized once a year.
