FC Zbrojovka Brno

FC Zbrojovka Brno is a local professional football (soccer) club.  Locally, it is known as Flinta (the gun).

This year the club celebrates its 100th year.  In 1913, the club was founded as SK Židenice.

The team is mostly Czech, a couple of Slovaks and individual players from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Senegal and Guinea.  They finished the 2012-2013 season in 13th place in the Gambrinus league.

I still haven't made it to a European football match yet but it is on my list of things to do.  I guess I should see about going to a Zbrojovka match.
