Centenary: Letter to the fans of Legia
Warsaw, 11 April 2016
Dear Sir or Madam!
One hundred years ago began one of the most beautiful adventures in the history of Polish sport. In April 1916, behind the Volyn front of the First World War, soldiers of the Polish Legion under the command of Marshal Józef Piłsudski founded Legia Warsaw.
We believe that the celebration of the centenary of our club, is not only an opportunity for a better understanding of the history of Legia Warsaw and the fate of its heroes, but also a contribution to integrating the community of our fans.
We believe that the central point of the planned celebrations will become a joint celebration of yet another Polish championship, of which our players are fighting for on the pitch.
We encourage you to read the Centenary Memorandum and the program of the celebrations of the Centenary of Legia Warsaw (below). Due to the tight schedule of games in the current and next season, the dates of some events are indicative. Some of the planned activities have to be kept secret for some more time. The details of those events will be presented on a regular basis.
With Legional greetings,
Legia Warsaw Board
President Bogusław Leśnodorski, Vice President Jakub Szumielewicz
