Where do match displays at Legia come from? The answer is one: the majority of displays is designed and
performed by the fans!
This match is and will be remembered long by all. This was the first that complicated stadium choreography in Poland, the first cardboard crest in Poland, a superb atmosphere and lots of pyrotechnics. We designed and arranged cardboards (which were sponsored by the club) and bought flares and volcanoes. An excellent show, respected in the whole continent! (our crest was presented continuously on Eurosport)
Legia 1-0 Wisła Kraków
This time we prepared a cardboard flag on three central sectors of "Żyleta". Additionally, we prepared a splendid flare show and smoke bombs on "Żyleta"... We also utilized volcanoes in a "modest" quantity of 400. A part of display was organized on "Kryta".
Legia 3-0 Polonia Warszawa
The Warsaw derby had their announcement during Wednesday night, when we carried over another poster action. Direct preparations for the match included cardboard choreography project and purchase of necessary pyrotechnics. The cardboards came out great: the Polonia fans saw a city panorama with "Syrenka", who had an "L" on her shield. This was accompanied by pyrotechnic effects: volcanoes and launchers.
Legia 3-0 Wisła
Crows... smoke bombs... stroboscopes... and flares... What about flares? Or perhaps what of flares? LEGIA! This wasn't ever seen in our part of Europe! A huge inscription with the name of our Beloved Club made of flares appeared on "Żyleta" that evening, astonishing whole Poland!!! The one who was there knows... who wasn't, let him regret it.
Legia 0-1 Barcelona
There was to be cardboards on this match, however the weather conditions denied them. In the 2nd half we distributed and fired 90 flares on "Żyleta". Nobody was able to see anything for a few minutes because of them... None of the pyrotechnics finished on the lawn! 110 flares were lighted during this match overall.
Legia 3-2 Wisła
The cardboard choreography project for this match was the subject of discussions a long way before the game. The 1st of September is not just the war outbreak date for Legia fans. This is also the next anniversary of Kazimierz Deyna death. Thus we decided to prepare a display devoted to the capital city idol. During a minute of silence fans at "Żyleta" lifted cardboards composed an effigy of "Kaka" with his birth and death dates. In the 2nd half we lighted over 160 flares and detonated a few smoke bombs.
Legia 2-0 Widzew
Already before the start of the season the match versus Widzew was selected as the number 1 match of this round. We were to prepare something special for the 25th of October... and we did. We arranged cardboards which created a "WITAMY W PIEKLE" (WELCOME TO HELL) inscription after they were lifted by the fans on the open stand. The character presented on the cardboards had flares lighted in both of his eyes and then 30 flares were lighted on the top of "Żyleta"... excellent combination. When the fans were about to finish their song and threw the cardboards into the sky we detonated over 20 tubes from the lawn! The next event was stroboscopes, which were laid down in the quantity of 400 on the whole "Żyleta": a superb effect. In the 2nd half we took out our sector flags and lighted a dozen or so crows... Then the Widzew hooligans interrupted the match and we had a few more events planned for that evening (balloons, 100 small and big volcanoes and over 60 flares!).
Legia 4-3 Amica
The spring round opening introduced a first-time that complicated balloon display. It featured an "L" in a circle surrounded by radial stripes. Several dozen flares were lighted accompanied by sector flags.
Legia 3-0 GKS
The players entering the lawn were welcomed with three hearts in Legia colors surrounded by black ballons. In the first half a sector flag was spread. Just before the 2nd half kickoff fans lighted a dozen or so crows assisted by smoke bombs. A dozen minutes later "Żyleta" was on fire thanks to several dozens flares lighted in a row. The hit of the evening were, however, the roman fires, which delivered red and green sparks "wheezing" over the stand for a few minutes. The Legia fans were the first in Poland to present this kind of pyrotechnics.
Legia 2-0 Lech
At the beggining of the biggest ultras show in Poland ever a double sided cardboard choreography was presented. The first side featured a razor blade. After turning the cardboards "Żyleta" changed into huge eyes! The cardboard show was accompanied by a dozen flares lighted on the top of the stadium. In the meantime smoke bombs in Legia colors were detonated on the covered stand. In the first half three sector flags appeared over the heads of fans sitting at "Żyleta". The fans also lighted 100 volcanoes in the same part of the match. The players returning for the 2nd half were welcomed with over 100 flares lighted on both "Żyleta" and the covered stands. And the curve shrouded in red-white-green smoke a few crows emerged. The 2nd half also featured a crest of flares and as many as 2200 roman fires. The latter caused the sky over "Żyleta" being colored for 10 minutes! In the meantime 500 small flags, a dozen flags on sticks and several dozens banners appeared on the open stand. Moreover red and green balloons were distributed on side sectors. This great show ended with 20 stroboscopes lighted at the bottom of "Żyleta".
