The 1. FC Katowice is a football club from Katowice, Poland and was founded in 2007 as a reactivation by the Silesian Autonomy Movement of the 1945 dissolved 1. FC Kattowitz.
The women's section started in the 3rd tier, but has managed two promotions and will play its first season in Polands highest league the Ekstraliga Kobiet in 2010-11. As a result of the expansion of the Ekstraliga in 2010-11, a third-place finish in the 2nd division 2009-10 was enough to reach the promotion playoffs, which were won.
Because of higher number of men's teams, the men's section of Katowice will have a long way up the leagues. After starting in the 8th tier an instant promotion was achieved, the next two seasons the team achieved only a midfield place in the 7th tier.
In 2015 the women's section was disbanded citing financial problems. There were plans to transfer the team to GKS Katowice but eventually GKS re-founded their own women's section.
