This season, the crowning game of the Topliga, the highest division of play in the Polish League of American Football (PLFA), will be shown live on two stations, nSport and TVN Turbo. A day later an edited version of the game will also be shown on Eurosport 2.

The transmission will be produced using 12 cameras, and will be available in HD on all three stations.

“2012 has seen football in our country take some giant steps,” said PLFA Commissioner Jędrzej Stęszewski. “Putting on the SuperFinal at one of Europe's most modern stadiums, in conjunction with the broadcasts on multiple popular television stations, creates a fantastic opportunity to show how spectacular our sport is and the strides it has made in Poland in the last few years.”

The broadcast on nSport HD is set to begin at 4:40 PM, with a pre-game studio show. In addition to the live broadcast, nSport HD will replay the game six times between July 16 and July 22.

nSport HD is available on the “n” satellite television platform, in addition to the cable platforms Vectra, Multimedia Polska and Toya. It is interesting to note that nSport HD was launched as a station on October 12, 2006 – exactly four days before the first ever official PLFA game, between the 1. KFA Fireballs Wielkopolska and the Warsaw Eagles.

TVN Turbo will show the entire first and fourth quarters of the game, in addition to highlights of the action from the second and third quarters. That station's first look at the show from the National Stadium is scheduled for 4:30 PM. TVN Turbo, one of Poland's most popular 'lifestyle' stations, is also available through the “n” satellite platform, as well as through Digital Polska and Cyfra Plus. The feed will also be carried by most of the biggest cable providers in Poland, including UPC, Vectra, Multimedia Polska, Aster and Toya.

One day after the title game, on Monday, July 16, a 90-minute replay of the game will be shown on the Europe-wide channel Eurosport 2 at 5:00 PM.

Eurosport 2 reaches over 50 million households in 47 countries. The station broadcasts is 16 different languages: Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Swedish and Turkish.

After the end of the SuperFinal, the full recording of the game will be available through the TVN Player. The recording can then be seen through the World Wide Web, through iOS and Android mobile devices, and through Samsung TV's SmartTV until July 2013. The 90-minute version of the game will go straight to “n”'s VOD feature. Both materials will be available free of charge.
