The football, signed by Michael Bennett and donated by the Seattle Seahawks organization, traveled from Seattle to Gdynia on May 24th, 2014. After arriving on the beautiful northern coast of Poland, our member, Mateusz Kubas contacted the Seahawks Gdynia to set up a meeting in order to officially present the football and establish a relationship.

The presentation took place on a Tuesday evening at the Polish National Rugby Stadium, which the Seahawks Gdynia call their home.
