May 14, 2017 - Brodek u Prostějova 1 Haná Prostějov 3

May 14, 2017 - Okresní Přebor Prostějov - 8th tier
Brodek u Prostějova 1 Haná Prostějov 3
Attendance - 110

The facilities in Brodek are quite good for an 8th tier team in a small town.  Not many clubs in this area, and at this level have an actual covered stand.  However, it seems that the local teenagers use it more for their graffiti rather than watching the local side.

Going into this game, Haná Prostějov were in 1st place by only 2 points over Vrahovice, making this away game in Brodek crucial.  Hana played a 'professional', well disciplined  match, and fully deserved the three points.

The current men's team plays in the 2nd tier of nohejbal in the Czech Republic, which is a nation wide competition.  The sport was invented in the Czech Republic 1922, but it was not until 1936 that the first official rules were written.  The World Championships were held in Brno November 2016.

Okresní Přebor Prostějov - Vícov 1 Haná Prostějov 1

Okresní Přebor Prostějov - 8th tier
Vícov 1 Haná Prostějov 1 (Vícov won on penalties)
Attendance - 65

If you ever go to Vícov by bus, pay attention to which bus you are taking.  The village has a population of 516 people, and is located only 12km from Prostějov.  However, if you are not careful, you might take a 45 minute bus ride.  I do not think that I have ever been on such a long bus ride to go such a short distance.

The pitch is about a 5 minute walk from the centre of the village.  Opposite the pitch is a pub which serves beer from Prostějov, which I would recommend as it is not that easy to find.
