Raised trophies, goals scored and those denied by goalkeepers, famous players and supporters – all this is now a part of Stadion Wojska Polskiego’s centenary exposition.

Black and white photos are placed in an unusual position, on the stairs leading to upper tier of the stadium. This way they’re visible to everyone walking through the main promenade and are particularly exposed at night, when staircases are lit.

The exhibition is one way for Legia to celebrate 100 years in existence as the championship-hopefuls played their first home game of the year yesterday. Contrary to attendance statistics in recent months, opening of 2016 saw a sell-out crowd of 25,675 people at the stadium. Legia won 4:0 against Jagiellonia, now trailing with just 3 points behind Piast Gliwice, still top of the Ekstraklasa.
