Only win! FutureNet Imperium Katowice faces local rival SPR Sośnica Gliwice
FutureNet Imperium Katowice players and fans awaits this match. On Saturday, February 1, our team will face SPR Sośnica Gliwice - its great local rival from the Silesia region in Poland. Sośnica Gliwice is a club that means a lot of women's handball in Poland. Founded in 1951, during the years Sośnica 12 times won the medals of the Polish championships - including three national champion titles. The club from Gliwice also won the Polish Cup several times. What else can be said: this club is an important brand. However, last years weren't easy for the club. In the 2000/2001 season, Sośnica won the vice-championship of Poland, losing the fight for the title woth Montex Lublin. Since then, the team has been getting worse, and in 2007 it fell from Ekstraklasa. A year later, the team won the right to return to the group of the best teams in Poland, but had financial problems and had to stay in the 1st league. The rich history of Sośnica Gliwice adds an extra taste to the match with FutureNet Imperium Katowice. Our team is the exact opposite of its entitled rival. FutureNet Imperium as a club was created just over 5 years ago. So far, its biggest success has been the promotion to the 1st league in which the club plays this season. There are many young players in the FutureNet Imperium who still gain experience under the guidance of the coach-veteran Janusz Szymczyk. So we'll have an interesting match between young team, hungry successes with a entitled team, which, however, has its glory far behind it. This season, FutureNet Imperium - despite being a freshman - is doing very well. Our team has 32 points and is the vice-leader of the league, trailing to leading SPR JKS Jarosław with just 4 points. On the other hand, SPR Sośnica Gliwice ranks 7th and has 21 points. The team from Gliwice is a typical average - it's not likely that it will be promoted higher, but it also shouldn't be worried league will either be threatened. Team results are average, but one of the players from Sośnica rises above the league. Aleksandra Abramowicz, who scored 89 goals in 11 games, has a place among the best players in the league. In October 2018, both teams faced in Gliwice. It was one of the better matches of FutureNet Imperium this season, won by our team 23:23 after a very hard fight. Will this success be repeated in Katowice? We believe in it!
