Sparta Prague

The Prague derby (Czech : Pražské derby) or Derby of the Prague S (Czech : Derby pražských S) is a football match between local Prague rivals SK Slavia Prague and AC Sparta Prague. The two clubs are considered to be the most successful in the Czech football, having won league and cup titles multiple times. The two were both founded in the late 19th century, Slavia one year before their rivals in 1892, though Slavia did not play football until four years later. The first match between the teams was played on 29 March 1896, with the game finishing 0–0. [1] The two clubs are the most successful and famous in the country and their dominance has led the derby to be referred in a similar way as the Scottish Old Firm.[ citation needed ]


As of 5 May 2021 the fixture has been played 299 times. Sparta have won 133 of those matches, 72 ended as a draw and Slavia have won 94.

This derby occasionally also includes FK Dukla Prague or Bohemians 1905.
