About Bohemians Praha

Bohemians 1905 (previously named FC Bohemians Praha) is a Prague-based football (soccer) club with over a hundred years of history. It is one of the most popular clubs in the Czech Republic. Its most successful era came in the early 1980s when the club won the Czechoslovakian League Championship and advanced to the semifinals of the UEFA Cup (both in 1983). In the year 2005 it survived a crisis, which was a consequence of bad management. The club was prevented from taking part in the second part of the 2004–05 Czech 2. Liga and its results were expunged. The club was relegated to the 3rd Czech division due to its financial insolvency, but later was saved by its fans who paid off portion of the club's debts. The club was able to advance back to the top flight in 2007, where they currently play.

Its colours are green and white. The home stadium, located in Vršovice, is called Ďolíček. However, from the 2010–11 Gambrinus liga, for a period of five years, Bohemians is playing its home matches at Synot Tip Arena. Ďolíček is only used for the Bohemians 1905 "B" team. This is because the stadium was not at the required standards for the Czech football league.

The most prestigious match is the derby with Slavia Prague. "Vršovice Derby" is the second most prestigious derby in Prague. Slavia and Bohemians are located in the district Vršovice, stadiums are separated by only 1 km. Also derby with Sparta Prague is a big match

The best known player from Bohemians' history is Antonín Panenka. Bohemians' mascot is a kangaroo, the legacy of a 1927 tour of Australia. Following the tour, the club was awarded two live kangaroos, which they donated to the Prague Zoo.
