FK SAN-JV Šumperk - Tryšův Stadion

Šumperk is a city of around 30,000 located at the foot of the Jeseníky mountains.  The local football club was founded in 1945.  According to the official Šumperk football website, before World War II, the local German population had a majority and did not allow the Czechs to create their own football club.  This was not the case in the surrounding villages where Czechs had the majority and clubs were formed.  They currently play in the 5th level of football in the Czech Republic.  Last season, they were relegated from the 4th level, and it was only a few years ago that they were almost promoted to the 3rd level.

The stadium is only about a 10 minute walk from the main train station.  It has a large track around it, and seating for a few hundred people.
