Stadion Hetmana – stadium description
Located beside the river Łabuńka, the stadium lies within a picturesque park and just a short walk away from the old town or train station. For nearly a century it's been the home to local football and athletics, most notably football team Hetman Zamość and athletics team Argos.
History of the ground dates back to 1930s as ground was broken in 1935, on the initiative of a social committee. Official opening took place not long afterwards and the stadium was joined by other sports facilities, becoming the largest leisure precinct in Zamość.
Over the year the ground's standard has been changing with numerous upgrades and expansions, becoming one of the most impressive sports stadia across Eastern Poland. Its main stand is covered, which earned it national prestige during socialist days, when most stadiums in Poland were mere landfill stands. In 21st century the auditorium was equipped with individual seats, though never officially becoming an all-seater.
In its history Hetman's stadium hosted mostly the team's football fixtures by a wide margin, which drew crowds during their heyday in 1992–2003. Also, in 1989 the ground played host to the Polish Super Cup match between Legia Warszawa and Ruch Chorzów, watched by some 11,000 people.
