Stadion Boruty Zgierz – stadium description
The Boruta stadium is located in the south of Zgierz, not far away from the railway station. It's part of the municipal sport complex, which also includes an indoor arena, gymnasium, full-sized training field and a fitness park.
Established in 1933, local sports team shared the scale of most Polish clubs by establishing numerous sports sections, of which football was only one and not always the most important. In order to cope with growing demand, the stadium was created in 1936.
The stadium still offered a running track, archery range, shooting range and numerous facilities to accommodate athletes. With proper infrastructure, Zgierz soon earned some medalists.
Though built with crescent-shaped landfill terrace, the stadium now only has the west sections occupied with seating. The grandstand can hold up to 1,500 people, though only some of them seated.
