July 31, 2016 - OFS Olomouc Cup - Preliminary Round - Hodolany 0 Sokol Majetín 1

OFS Olomouc Cup - Preliminary Round
Sigma Hodolany (9th div) 0 Sokol Majetín (8th div) 1
Attendance - 200

Hodolany is located right being the main train station in Olomouc, and as such, it is quite easy to reach.  The club was originally formed in 1912, but merged with HFK Olomouc after the 2004/05 season.  Hodolany reformed a few years back, and play at their original ground.  I wrote a little more about the history of the club back when I visited in 2009 to see HFK Olomouc B play.

The 2016-17 OFS Olomouc Cup is open to clubs that play in the 5th to 10th tiers.  The winner of the cup advances to the Olomouck Region Cup, with the winner of that advancing to the 2017-18 Czech Cup.

This year Velký Týnec (8th tier) won the OFS Olomouc Cup after defeating Černovír (6th tier) on penalties.

September 25, 2016 - Okresní Přebor Prostějov - Horní Štěpánov 2 Haná Prostějov 3

September 25, 2016
Okresní Přebor Prostějov - 8th tier
Horní Štěpánov 2 Haná Prostějov 3
Attendance - 40

If for whatever reason you want to go to Horní Štěpánov to watch football, you must have a car.  The village of around 1,000 is about 30km from Prostějov and sits about 660m above sea level.  To get to the village you have to battle the fast Czech drivers on the narrow, windy roads.

The football pitch is located over looking the village on a small hill, and makes for one of the most scenic pitches in Okres Prostějov.  The match was a classic 1st vs 2nd.  Horní Štěpánov had a 2-0 at HT, but the visitors came back with three goals in a row to win.  The winning goal was scored in injury time.
