FK Viktoria Žižkov ranks among the oldest football clubs in the
It was founded by a group of students in 1903 in the town of
Žižkov(since 1922 part of Prague). Viktoria's main successes fall into the period between the world wars — until 1948 it was the third most successful Czechoslovak club, winning the Czechoslovak championship in 1928. After the second world war and the beginning of communism in 1948 it descended to the lower leagues where it remained until 1993 when it was promoted again to the highest league. Viktoria achieved much success between 1993 and 2003, winning the national cup in 1994 and 2001, competing in four European cups and finishing 3rd in the league on two occasions.
In 2002 Viktoria Žižkov famously knocked Scottish champions Rangers out of the
UEFA Cup. [ [http://football.guardian.co.uk/UEFA_Cup/Story/0,,804349,00.html Rangers fall to extra Czech strike | UEFA Cup | Guardian Unlimited Football ] ]
In 2004, after a string of poor results and a corruption scandal, the team was relegated again to the second league. In 2007 the team successfully made it back to the Gambrinus liga, finishing the season as runaway champions of the 2nd league.
Žižkov's first season back in the Gambrinus liga proved to be one of successful consolidation, the team finishing in a creditable 10th place, whilst also reaching the quarter final stage of the knock out cup. One of the highlights of the season was a 3-0 away win at Slavia, inflicting their only home defeat on the eventual champions. A 1-1 pre-Christmas home draw with Slavia was perhaps just as important however, the point being gained with a last minute Richard Kalod goal.
Žižkov's home form was the mainstay of their season, indeed they won 5 of their 7 post-Christmas matches. The final game of the season saw them gain a 1-0 victory over Mladá Boleslav, with another Kalod goal, thereby gaining their only double of the season, having also gained a 1-0 win against Boleslav on the opening day of the season. Top scorer for the season was
Petr Švancara, who scored 6 goals.Fact|date=September 2008
