Legia is one of the most successful Polish football clubs in history winning twelve Ekstraklasa Champions titles, a record 18 Polish Cup trophies and four Polish SuperCup matches. The club's home venue is the Polish Army Stadium.

Legia was formed between 5 and 15 March 1916 during military operations in World War I on the Eastern Front in the neighborhood of Maniewicze in Volhynia, as the main football club of the Polish Legions. After the war, the club was reactivated 14 March 1920 in an officer casino in Warsaw as Wojskowy Klub Sportowy Warszawa, renamed Legia in 1923 after merger with another local club, Korona. It became the main official football club of the Polish Army – Wojskowy Klub Sportowy Legia Warszawa (Military Sports Club Legia Warsaw).
