FC Dynamo Javorník

I didn't actually go to a game in Jarvoník ve Slezsku, but I remember going to the town in February 2009 because I felt like going on a trip. As it was winter, I had to make due without any football. So, I decided to make the 320km round-trip, 7 hours on a train, trip to the northern-most town in Moravia. It is tucked up in the corner on a narrow strip of land.

Javorník is a town of around 3,000 people. It is located only a few kilometres from Poland. During the summer, the biggest draw is a beautiful chateau on a hill over-looking the town. During the winter, well, there wasn't much to see. I walked around a little, and eventually stumbled upon the football stadium.

The football club, which was formed in 1946, currently plays in the Olomoucký Kraj - 1 B třída, skupina C, which is the 7th tier of football in the country. Their "b" team plays in the Olomoucký Kraj - Okresní Přebor - Jeseníky which is the 8th tier of football. The stadium was quite basic with some covered seats, and an area for standing. The first team currently sits in 10th place after the autumn half of the season. The second half will resume when they play away to Vidnava.
