Panini Ekstraklasa 2016 is the official sticker collection of the Polish Premier League for the season 2015/2016. This is the 8th album in a row since 2009. Previsouly Panini published sticker albums of the Polish league from 1997 and 1999.
The album opens with the table of contents, the medal of honour and three introductory shining stickers: the Panini's logo, the trophy of the competition, and the logo of the Ekstraklasa. Then the club badge stickers of the 16 Ekstraklasa teams are included on four pages. These are shining stickers. The album continues with the presentation of the 16 teams in alphabetical order. Each team is displaced over two pages with a total of 21 stickers: the team photo and 20 players, out of which one is a shining sticker.
In the last part of the album there is a section dedicated to the best young prospects of the league. There are 16 stickers of players in action (one per team) over two pages. Poland has a great school of goalkeepers, especially in the latest years. In this album we can find the young Dragowski (1997, Jagiellonia) who signed for Fiorentina at the end of the season, and the Croatian Marko Maric (1996, Lechia) who signed for Hoffenheim.
Last page of the album is the calendar of the season including one metallic sticker: the official ball of the competition.
