In the era of digitization, PZPN is planning to expand its media ecosystem with innovative digital applications. This includes the introduction of a mobile application integrating various services, from calendar synchronization to a loyalty program. The federation is also keen on embracing new digital phenomena such as NFTs and Web 3.0.

  1. 6. Embracing E-Commerce

PZPN has identified e-commerce as a key area for growth and intends to launch a comprehensive e-commerce and m-commerce platform. The platform will offer a wide array of products, ranging from sports accessories and fan gadgets to lifestyle products and player accessories.

  1. 7. eFootball and the Virtual Sphere

With the virtual sphere becoming increasingly relevant, PZPN plans to build a community around eFootball. This includes organizing gaming camps and creating new opportunities for virtual tournaments and campaigns.

  1. 8. CSR through a Business Platform

The federation is keen on using football as a platform for implementing business strategies in CSR. Potential initiatives include supporting children's football, amateur football, and football for individuals with disabilities.

  1. 9. Promoting Social Causes

PZPN intends to leverage its strong social position to address significant social issues. Planned campaigns will focus on topics like women's empowerment and climate change, carried out in collaboration with the federation's partners.

  1. 10. Intellectual Property Development

The Polish Football Association plans to expand its intellectual property, including historical exhibitions, media collaborations, and the development of the PZPN Library of Polish Football. This will serve to connect fans more deeply with the rich history of Polish football.

  1. 11. Evaluation and Measurement of Business Results

Lastly, the federation's strategy emphasizes the importance of evaluating and measuring business results to ensure effective partnerships. It plans to use advanced monitoring techniques to measure sponsorship impact and report on the intersection of business and sport.
