The first ever Ekstraklasa Cup was held in 1952 in which Wawel Kraków came out victorious over Cracovia Kraków with the final score being 5-1. Two tournaments were also held in 1976–77 and 1977–78. In these two editions Odra Opole won 3-1 against Widzew Łódź and in 1978 Górnik Zabrze beat Zagłębie Sosnowiec 2-0. The tournament was later dismissed until the 1999–2000 season when it resumed for three years till the 2001–02 season.
