FC Baník Ostrava

Among the nicknames of the club are Baníček or Chachaři. The club's colours are blue and white, and they wear mostly white jerseys at home and blue away. At home they are now at the Municipal Stadium in Ostrava-Vítkovice, which has a seating capacity of 15,123. It is not only a football stadium, but also an athletics stadium and hosts events such as the Golden Treble. Baník has been playing here since the 2014/15 season, until then its home stadium was Bazaly.

Banik's regional rival is SFC Opava, and at the national level it is AC Sparta Prague. Baník has long been one of the most visited clubs in the Czech Republic and is also known for its loyal fans, including radical ones who do not always show their support in accordance with good behaviour. On the other hand, the chants and wide repertoire of chants that accompany every Baník match are legendary.

The name of Milan Baros is especially associated with the club in modern history and in the present. Other famous names that have passed through the club are Marek Jankulovski or Tomas Galásek.

The club's origins and achievements

The club is based in Ostrava and was founded in 1922, then under the name SK Slezská Ostrava. The name of the club has been changed several times in its history, and the current one has been used practically since 1990, when it also twice bore the surname of the current main sponsor.

The club had its golden era in the 1970s and 1980s, when it became the winner of the former Czechoslovak Football League three times, in the seasons 1975/76, 1979/80 and 1980/81. During this period it also finished second several times and won the former Czechoslovak Cup 3 times, which it won a total of 5 times, the last time in the 2004/05 season as the Czech Cup. In the modern history of the 1st league, they has only one title from the 2003/04 season.

On European soil, it won the now-defunct Central European Cup in its golden era, and has also been in the quarter-finals of the European Champions Cup (now the Champions League) and the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League). They played the semi-finals in the Cup Winners' Cup.

Financial problems

The club has struggled with finances since the early 1990s after the fall of communism. In 2011, the stadium at Bazale was even sold. The club played in the 2nd league between 2015 and 2018 and underwent significant changes and rejuvenation of the squad. Later, Milan Baroš also returned to Baník at the end of his career. Coach Bohumil Páník brought a result improvement and the club finished the 2018/19 season in 5th place.
