They are known as Shoemakers because their town is connected with the shoe industry thanks to the legendary local entrepreneur Tomáš Bat'a. The club colours are yellow and blue, which you can also find on the home jersey. They play at Zlín's Letná stadium, which has a capacity of 6,315 seats.
The club was founded in 1919 in Zlín, then as SK Zlín. It played its first matches at the Za sýpkou pitch, which it rented. When it was evicted from this land, the Bata company entered the club's history for the first time by renting the football field in Deštěnka for 5 crowns per year. The company continued to be involved in the club, so in 1924 the name was changed to SK Bata Zlín. Two years later, the club was playing in a new stadium near the railway station and in 1932, it recorded its first local success when it became the champion of Moravia.
Two years after this success, the club again changed the stadium to the new sanctuary U elektrárny. In 1938, the club celebrated its first ever promotion to the top competition. Together with Sparta and Slávia, Zlín was one of the best league clubs during the Protectorate period. It played in the highest competition until 1947, when it was expelled for influencing the results of matches.
After that, there were other name changes, and quite radical ones, due to the change of the name of the town during the communist regime, so came Sokol Svit I Gottwaldov. However, the name changed several more times and for one season the club also appeared again in the 1st league. The club has had its name FC Zlín since the 1990s, when it was continuously added according to the sponsor. FC Fastav Zlín has been the name since 2012.
An interesting success came in the 1969/70 season, when the club won the then Czechoslovak Cup. It was later won again in 2016/17, then as the Czech Cup. It also holds the Czechoslovak Super Cup from the same year, 2017. This is played between the winner of the Czech and Slovak Cups before the start of the new season. Currently, the club has been playing in the 1st league since 2016, when it was promoted to it again, and is hovering around the middle of the table, with the best position being 6th in 2017.
