Czech Cup - 1st round
Vyškov 2 Zlín 1
I finally made the trip to the near-by town of Výškov last month to see a Czech Cup game. Over the past three years I have been meaning to get to a game here, only because it is 20km from where I live.
The stadium is on the far end of town, but only a 10 minute walk through a park from the train station. Unfortunately, it has a huge track around the pitch, so the main stand sits a ways back. There was only only stand with bench seating, but it looks like there was a terrace bowl at some point.
The home team currently plays in the 1st division, while the visitors play in the 2nd division. They were recently relegated from the Gambrinus Liga not to long ago. Despite the difference in the level of play, Vyškov took the game to their hosts and were well deserving of their 2-1 victory. Zlín brought about 10 fans to the game,
It is a decent place to watch a game, only if you are in the Czech Republic for a longer stay than a few weeks.
