Warsaw groundhopping: A hop to Marymont and Bielany

Taking advantage of my luxuriously long Christmas and New Year break and eager to test out my new camera I decided to visit some more Warsaw stadiums.  As followers of the blog know, there are a host of different club stadiums in Warsaw and its environs, in different states of decay.  Perhaps the most spectacular […]

Play-off for the IV liga: Second leg: Przyszłość Włochy 0 PKS Radość 4

After a frantic and even first leg last Wednesday, yesterday PKS and Przyszłość played the second leg to decide which club would advance to the 5th tier of Polish football.  On a relatively dreary Sunday in Warsaw I set off to Włochy to see which team would prevail.  I once more made the mistake of […]

Play-off for the IV liga: First leg: PKS Radość 1 Przyszłość Włochy 1

After all the buildup I set off to South-East Warsaw to catch the first game of the play-off for the IV Liga.  Radość is quite a long way from the part of Praga in which I live, and the bus seemed to take an absolute age to get there as it crept through the rush-hour […]

Warsaw Groundhopping: Warsaw Klasa A Group III: Gwardia Warszawa 1 Anprel Nowa Wieś 0

Today was a special day in my groundhopping odyssey in Warsaw.  I got to visit the stadium of Gwardia Warszawa, a place I’ve wanted to see since I wrote an article about the club in January.  Gwardia (nicknamed the Harpagony – the harpies) is a very successful team by Warsaw standards, one of only four […]

Warsaw Groundhopping: Liga Okręgowa Group One: Olimpia Warszawa 1 AON Rembertów 3

My most recent groundhopping adventure started innocuously enough.  I finished work at around 16.30 and took the metro back into the city centre.  It’s been an amazingly warm, almost summer day in Warsaw and getting into town Varsovians, having just escaped the dark days of winter, were enjoying the opportunity en masse to be outside […]

Warsaw groundhopping: Warsaw Liga Okręgowa Group One, Drukarz Warszawa 5 Wicher Kobyłka 2

My intention this weekend was to get to a Gwardia Warszawa game, a team that I wrote about in January, unfortunately their match was called off due to the melting of Warsaw’s snow and the heavy rain that followed throughout the day on Friday.  Searching frantically for a lower-league game to go to I discovered […]

Unfortunate goings on: A trip to Dolcan Ząbki

The official start of spring is just over two days away but snow continues to fall in Warsaw.  This unseasonal weather has caused havoc to the lower league schedule in the Mazovian region.  Indeed matches from the fourth tier down have been already been called off four days in advance of this weekend’s fixtures.  Whilst […]
