The are about 20 teams per season. Each team must include at least 3 men and 3 women, and players of at least 3 nationalities. Each team prepares a presentation and refreshments (the form of presentation changes from season to season). There are professional referees.
When do you play?
Each spring and autumn, the season lasts approx. 3 months. Throughout the whole year, we arrange training and sparring activities and games, and compete in other tournaments.
Where do you play?

Competitions are held in different districts of Warsaw. In the spring season we play outdoors, and in the fall usually indoors.

How can I join?
Recruitment usually takes place in February-March and August-September. You will find necessary information regarding the upcoming edition on this site and on our facebook.
How much does it cost?

Our project was invented for amateurs who cannot afford to play in paid leagues. We believe that sport should be accessible for everyone, and therefore, our activities are free of charge.

I do not have a team...
Etnoliga is also for you! We accept individual and team applications. So don’t worry, we will help you find a team to join. Just fill in the appropriate application form.
I don't know any women players and foreigners...
Talk to the girls you know – maybe they have always wanted to play football but did not have a chance? Post info on facebook. Look around your neighborhood, haven’t you ever met foreigners there? Invite them to play together. Ask at work, at school. You can also write to us, we wil do our best to help you complete the team.
But I am a minor...

You can play in Etnoliga from the age of 16. If you are a minor, bring a consent for participation signed by your parent/legal guardian.

Are players insured against accidents?

You participate at your own risk. Injuries happen, of course, and you should always take it into consideration. We provide emergency medical care for injuries incurred during the game (affixing abrasions, wounds disinfection, protection of wounds). If you suffer damage to your health, contact us and ask for a compensation under our accident insurance.

What are the prizes?
We play for fun and for the idea, not for rewards. All participants get commemorative medals. Winners get cups and sometimes extra gifts as well.
What if I live out of Warsaw?
You still can meet us in your city at demonstration matches and workshops for people interested in integration through sport. If you want to organize a tournament, we will be happy to help you!
