Description: Stadion Huraganu Wołomin

Stadion OSiR Huragan in Wołomin, just outside Warsaw, lies along the town's railway line, thus its alignment to the railroad rather than usual north-south axis. It was built in early 1930s, nine long years after the football club was established. Before opening, the team had to use local meadows for games.

Construction of the ground was enabled by funds from the national physical culture administration (PUWFiPW). Initiator of the grand project, Miron Paweł Cichecki, was in 2018 commemorated by inclusion in the stadium name.

Following WWII the stadium saw numerous minor redevelopments and gained its current shape. Its natural field is surrounded with gravel running track, accompanied by a single grandstand in the north, currently mostly seated. Initial layout included crescent shaped auditorium, remainders of which can still be seen along the curves. The south side is occupied by the main building of Wołomin's sports centre, which houses the changing rooms.
