Football in the Czech Republic
Sport fans in the Czech Republic are spoiled. They can look forward to watching a world-class team competing in every season of the year - in summer, their national football team that has been a member of the European and world elite for decades and, in winter, their revered ice hockey team. It is not therefore clear which sport holds the upper hand in the region. Both types of sport enjoyed generous government support in years gone by, sprouting a series of impressive triumphs and a flurry of players around the world. Some players who earned their spurs in Czech clubs still play for major teams, especially in Europe.  This high standard is a legacy that has been fine-tuned by taking part regularly in major final competitions and notching up several victories in various categories. The resultant success story propels them to even greater exploits.
The second Goal project
As a result of delays in purchasing a site, the Czech Republic's first Goal project was not launched until 2009. Once this obstacle had been overcome, the Football Association of Czech Republic wished to undertake a second project in order to complete the construction of the complex housing the administrative headquarters and technical centre. The Goal Bureau approved the second project which will involve the modernisation of the association's infrastructure.
