Football in Víska has a long tradition. The football club TJ Sokol Víska was
established in 1962. However, the first enthusiastic footballers had already played football on
the pitch U Filipových before the Second World War. They had often competed in friendly
matches with the teams of the neighbouring villages. This tradition continued during the post war
period. In the fifties some players played for the official team of the neighbouring village - Dynamo

The small size of the pitch and its unsuitable position near the water and gardens
led to the search for a flat place for a new full-sized pitch. At the end of the fifties, after
long discussions and difficult negotiations they started to build the new pitch in the centre
of the village. This area had been used as a public orchard and to tend cattle, therefore, it caused
displeasure on the part of the local residents.
After three years of concerned effort by many enthusiastic people, including the village council,
with the help of JZD Nová Ves - Víska (the local agriculture company) and later the local
road maintenance company, the pitch was completed.
A great stimulation for the volunteers during the building of the pitch was the
success of our national football team, as they competed at the world cup in Chile. (They finished
in 2nd place.) Participants recall as they were listening to the live radio broadcast from the

In the season of 1963/64 the team was entered in the III. třída (at that
time the lowest official league) of the district Havlíčkův Brod. The forty-year-history has
produced a lot of nice moments for everyone, a lot of big successes but some disappointments as well.
The biggest successes are as follows: the victory of the Okresní přebor (the highest district
league) in 1972/73 season and the rise to the I.'B' třída (the lowest regional league).
In years 1985-88, the under-14 used to play the Krajská soutěž (the lowest regional league)
and in the period 1989-92, the same generation in the under-18 team used to play the Krajská soutěž
In 1973, the club formed a friendship with a German club SV Lohmen*
(in the past called Tractor Gerdshagen). Since that time many sportsmen have visited
each other for friendship matches.
For the last three years it has coped with a crisis that culminated about four
years ago and since then the team has returned to the Okresní přebor. A promise for the
future is the improving performance of the under-14 team.
