Hetman Białystok (formerly known as Gwardia Bialystok) is a Polish football club based in Podlaskie Voivodeship. They play in the Division IV or the (4th) League.


Gwardia was organized in 1948 as a Polish Citizens' Militia's (Communist Police) club. The name Gwardia used to be a common name for any Citizens' Militia's sports' club in Poland. Many players were soldiers serving in the Polish Army who were assigned to the units in or near Bialystok City.

Gwardia Bialystok was the first team from Bialystok after World War II to advance to the II (2nd) League, but survived there only one season (1951–1952) before being relegated to the III (3rd) League.

With the fall of the Communist Oligarchy and the cessation of sponsorship, the club was forced to temporarily disappear in 1990.

The club was reactivated soon after when it changed its name from Gwardia to Hetman. The club also added three other sections: amateur boxing, judo, and contract bridge.


  • II (2nd) League: One season (1951–1952)
  • III (3rd) League: Group champion (2nd group out of 4 groups) (1953)
  • Polish Cup – OZPN Białystok – 1952/53, 1953/54, 1954/55, 1955/56, 1960/61, 1978/79, 1981/82, 1985/86, 1986/87, 1993/94


At the half—time winter break, Hetman leads in the Podlaska group of the new (old "5th") 4th or IV "Liga" Division. In the last game, Hetman defeated the previous leader, Piast also from Bialystok, 0:1 after a goal in the 39th minute scored by Lukasz Szarejko.
