If you ask the Poles about football, it won’t be long until you hear the name Legia. The team from the Polish capital is a founder member of the Polish National League (LPN), ten-time champion, eleven-time runner up and 15-time cup winner. They have also been in numerous European competitions, where they have often made it as far as the quarter or semi-finals.
We were Official Sponsor of Legia Warsaw and the team wore the bwin logo on their shorts in all Ekstraklasa and Cup games. bwin advertising was also present on the rotating boards in the stadium. In addition, bwin was listed as an Official Partner on their club website.
In terms of Polish players, only the best of the best have played at Legia in previous years. Such talents include subsequent legendary trainer Kazimierz Gorski, Pawel Janas (3rd place at the 1982 World Cup), Andrzej Buncol (UEFA Cup winner with Leverkusen), Marcin Mieciel and Artur Boruc.
After taking the league title in the 2005/06 season, Legia has since taken 3rd and 2nd spot. If they continue to play this way, the team from the capital is most likely to be right at the top once more at the end of the season.
