FOOTBALL fans lit up a city centre with flares in an astonishing light show to celebrate their club’s 100th birthday.
Jagiellonia Bialystok supporters filled the city to mark the landmark for Poland’s ninth-placed club.
Red Flares covered the city during the celebrations as fans showed their appreciation for the club.
Bialystok finished fifth in the league last season, just missing out on Europa League qualification.
They did reach the qualification stage of the Europa League in 2011 after finishing fourth, as well as winning the Polish Cup and Super Cup.
The club’s most successful seasons were in 2016-17 and 2017-18 when they finished 2nd, missing out on the title by two and three points respectively.
In 2009, Jagiellonia Bialystok were close to being relegated to the Polish second division due to a corruption scandal, but received a ten-point deduction the following season instead.
Currently ninth, Bialystok are nine points off league leaders Legia Warsaw.
The Polish side were close to making it through to last year’s Europa League group stages after beating Portuguese side Rio Ave in the second qualification round.
A third round defeat to Belgian side Gent denied them a chance to play in the group stages for the first time in their history.
Poland’s top flight – or the Ekstraklasa – is currently on a winter break with fixtures returning at the start of February.
