Games for the domestic Czech league, the Gambrinus liga, run from August to May with a break in December and January. The games and the fans tend to be somewhat lackluster. Tickets are plentiful enough on match days (except for tournaments). International matches are hosted at Sparta's stadium.
AC Sparta Praha. AC Sparta Praha has an enthusiastic fan base, with the stadium roar to match. Although Sparta has seen its fortunes dip a little recently, the team remains a domestic Goliath and a stone-slinging David in European competition. Long-term construction projects often reroute trams in the area, so check before the game. Generali Arena, Milady Horákové 98, Letná, Prague, Bohemia. 296–111–400. www.sparta.cz. Line A: Sparta.
FC Bohemians Praha. Reduced in the early 21st century to bringing up the rear in the capital are second-division FC Bohemians Praha. Fans are highly enthusiastic. Doliček stadion, Vršovická 31, Vršovice, Prague, Bohemia. 245–005–014. www.bohemians.cz. Tram to Vršovice Nám.
SK Slavia Praha. Sparta's success is much to the chagrin of its bitter rivals SK Slavia Praha, which now plays in the modern Eden Arena. Eden Stadium, 1460/10 Vladivostocká, Vršovice, Prague, Bohemia. 731–126–104. www.slavia.cz. Tram lines 4, 7, 22 or 24 to Slavia.
