Aug 13, 2016 - Okresní Přebor Prostejov - Otaslavice 2 Haná Prostějov 6





Aug 13, 2016 - Okresní Přebor Prostejov - 8th tier
Otaslavice 2 Haná Prostějov 6
Att - 45

Otaslavice is a village of 1261 located about 10km south of Prostějov. It is best to get to Otaslavice by car because there are only a few buses on the weekends.  The ground was quite good for this level with a decent sized stand. The club has mostly played in the 8th and 9th tiers over the past few years.

June 11, 2016 - WCQ Handball in Zlín - Czech Republic 28 Macedonia 22







June 11, 2016 - Handball WCQ 1st leg
Czech Republic 28 Macedonia 22
Attendance - 2000

Tickets for this match in Zlín were 299kc which I think is a little crazy, because tickets for the same two teams back in 2014 were only 150kc.  This game was close to being sold out, but there were empty seats and I think the ticket prices had a little to do with this.

There were around 75 Macedonia supporters at the game.  Some of them came from Macedonia while the others were living in Austria and the Czech Republic.

June 18, 2016 - Extraliga baseball - Skokani Olomouc 5 Kotlářka Prague 12








June 18, 2016
Extraliga Baseball
Skokani Olomouc 5 Kotlářka Prague 12
Attendance - 15

I grew up near Ottawa, Canada and as such grew up watching the Montreal Expos and listening to many games on the radio.  Never did a I think that I would have ever watched a baseball game in the Czech Republic, but here I was.  Baseball in the Czech Republic is quite an underground sport, but it does seem to have a number of people who are quite passionate about it. The national team plays a decent level, and only lost 2-1 against Mexico back in March.

Despite living in the Czech Republic for almost 9 years, I had never been to a baseball game in Olomouc until last month.  The stadium is located about a 15 minute walk from the city centre, and is not a terrible facility.  Not many people were watching the game, but the level was certainly watchable.  I hope to get out to another game later this year.

Attendance - 120

Brodek u Prostějova is a market town of 1,500 people located 12km south of Prostějov.  On the weekend, it is easy enough to take a bus from Prostějov.

The most famous football son from Brodek u Prostějova is Tomáš Bureš who played for Sigma Olomouc, Drnovice, Brno, LeRK Prostějov and SK Prostějov between 1995 and 2015.

As for the match, Haná were again short on players and had to play four U19 players.  With that being said, they all held their own and did not look out of place on the pitch.  Haná scored in the 89th minute, but unfortunately for them, the hosts scored in the 91st minute and went on to win the two points on penalties.  This all meant that Haná has for the part for lost their chance of finishing in first place.  They are 6 points behind Němcice nad Hanou with 2 games left.

Okres Prostějov - II trída - 8th tier
Čechovice B 2 Haná Prostějov 0
Attendance - 34

Haná are the time were battling for 1st place, but did not show anything of the sort.  A number of players were missing, and the starting line up was pieced together a few minutes before the match.  The sooner this game is forgotten about the better.
