The club is nicknamed Karviňáci and their club colours are green and white. These colours can also be found on the home jersey and in the club logo. The environment for their home matches is provided by the Karviná Municipal Stadium, which offers 4,862 seats after the latest expansion in 2016.
Among the club's famous alumni are players such as goalkeeper Jan Laštůvka, Petr Mašlej and Marek Bielan. Many interesting names have also played in the club's history, including Radek Sloncik and Vladan Milosavljev.
The club was founded in Karvina, in the Moravian-Silesian region, only in 2003. However, it was built from the torso of FC Karviná, from which it bought the football licence, and which claimed the legacy of SK Fryšták from 1920. The new club also claims this legacy. When the club was founded, it also merged with another Karviná club, TJ Jäkl Karviná. The previous club, FC Karviná, played in the top Czech league competition for 2 seasons in the 1990s. Specifically, it was in the seasons 1996/97 and 1998/99.
For the new club, MFK Karviná, May 2016 was a historic moment, when the Silesian club finished the second league season with the overall championship. Thanks to this, it was promoted to the 1st league for the first time in its existence. In the first season of 2016/17, Karviná finished in a pleasing 10th position. The very next season, however, the club had to save itself only in the last match, where it played Jihlava 2-0. Even a draw was enough for Karviná, and so Jihlava were relegated to the 2nd league.
Considering the short history of the new club, it is obvious that it has not yet achieved any significant success at the highest level of football. In the Czech Cup, however, there have been some partial successes, for example in 2009 the club knocked out the then still first league Zbrojovka Brno on penalties. In 2010, the club knocked out FC Slovan Liberec in the 3rd round of the competition, and finally fell to Sigma Olomouc in the 4th round. The 4th round was also the final round in 2011 and 2016. In 2017, after defeating Dukla Prague on penalties, the club played in the quarter-finals of the Czech Cup, its biggest success so far.
