Description: Stadion Miroslava Valenty

First games on the site of current stadium were played in 1920 and the historical team of Slovácká Slavia (established back in the 19th century) became anchor tenants. The club enjoyed some great moments and crowds at what was then a multi-discipline stadium. With capacity at 11,000 crowds at biggest games were even greater, topping at 12,000 in 1995 (against Sparta Praha).

However, Slavia was disbanded in 2000 and the stadium demolished. A new one, simple and rectangular in layout, was opened in 2003. Running track was relocated just east of the stadium, allowing all stands to be built right along around the field. It boasts some of the most distinctive floodlight masts ever. At the time of opening it was one of the most modern stadiums nationwide, prompting two games of the Czech national team (2006, 2009).
