Chojniczanka is a sports club from Chojnice, a town located in Pomeranian Voivodeship, founded in 1930.
The club's more than 70-year history has seen their greatest successes in the last decade. Right behind Chojniczanka are seven uninterrupted seasons on the direct back of PKO BP Ekstraklasa - Fortuna I Liga, during which a few times Chojnice were fighting for promotion to the highest level.
In addition, Chojniczanka has twice reached the quarter-final stage of the Cup - the current performance of our rival is the equalization of this record, and at the same time the third appearance at such a high level of the Fortuna Polish Cup.
After an unsuccessful 2019/20 season, the Chojniczanka team is fighting to return to the Fortuna I Liga. After the first round of the current season our rivals are almost at the top of the II Liga table, occupying a place on the lowest step of the podium. In the second part of the 2020/21 league games their aim will be going up to the first two positions in the table - awarded with a direct promotion to the Fortuna I Liga.
Chojniczanka reached to the quarter-finals of this year's Fortuna Polish Cup, eliminating two teams from II Liga: Olimpia Elbląg and Garbarnia Krakow, and a team of Zagłębie Lubin - which plays in PKO BP Ekstraklasa. The Chojnice-based team triumphed in the penalty shoot-out after a scoreless draw, while previous rivals wer defeated consecutively 1:0 and 3:1.
The upcoming match will be the first meeting between Chojniczanka and Cracovia in the history of both clubs.
