The PGE Ekstraliga’s opening Saturday has been wiped out after Lublin duo Grigorii Laguta and Jaroslaw Hampel tested positive for Covid-19.

According to the league’s official website, Hampel reported symptoms and requested a test, which was found to be positive. His team mate Laguta also tested positive, along with one of his mechanics.

Under PGE Ekstraliga rules, if two members of a team’s top five (by average) test positive for Covid-19, any meetings scheduled while they are both self-isolating are automatically postponed.

As a result, Lublin’s home match with Czestochowa has been switched from this Saturday to April 23.

This follows the postponement of Grudziadz’s home meeting with Wroclaw, which has also been pushed back to the same date.

Grudziadz star Przemyslaw Pawlicki and their Polish young guns Mateusz Bartkowiak and Kacper Łobodziński have all tested positive for the virus.

If a team’s leading two Polish under-21s are forced to self-isolate, this also allows the postponement of a match.

The PGE Ekstraliga season will now start on Sunday with newly-promoted Torun hosting Zielona Gora, before Leszno welcome Gorzow in a re-run of last year’s play-off final. Both meetings will be staged behind closed doors.
