SWAMPIONS SOCCER LEAGUE is a unique sporting event, promoting a healthy lifestyle in our charming corners of Podlasie. The competition is held during the Festival of Many Cultures and Nations “Visegrad Wave” in a small, amiable Czeremcha village, located in the north-east Poland near Hajnowka. The festival is an event that attracts thousands folk culture lovers and folk music fans from Poland and other countries. Swamp soccer is a very spectacular and fast growing sport discipline. There is probably no finer way to actively spend your free time in nature. So it is no coincidence that these two unique initiatives have decided to join forces to provide an unforgettable experience!
This is the first contest in Poland addressed to Polish and European swamp teams. The event aims to popularize mud football and enable Polish teams confrontation at international level . The event is aimed at European integration through fun and being together people, for people from East and West, North and South, and its motto could be the slogan: sling mud at each other on the pitch, not in the real world! 🙂
The second edition of SWAMPIONS SOCCER LEAGUE will be held from 22 – 24 July 2016, during the 21st Festival of Many Cultures and Nations “Visegrad Wave.”
Swamp players are going to compete on specially prepared for two pitches. We anticipate that the SSL second edition will bring together over 30 teams in two categories: men and women.
In 2015 the first edition of SSL attracted 18 teams (16 male and 2 female ones), players from Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Nigeria and Ukraine. The games were enormously popular among viewers and proved that each of the players was the champion- not matter if it was their first or hundredth swamp adventure. In swamp soccer fun and fair play are most important.
