FC Vysočina Jihlava is a football club from Jihlava, Czech Republic, which currently plays in the Czech First League, the top football competition in the Czech Republic. Jihlava played in the top flight for the first time in its history in the 2005–06 season. The club has taken part in the Czech 2. Liga more than 10 times and has also played in the Czech First League.

History[edit]

The club was founded under the name PAL Jihlava in 1948.[1] After the Czech Republic became independent in 1993, the club played in the third-tier Bohemian Football League until promotion in 2000 to the Czech 2. Liga. The club went on to take part in the second division for five years, reaching the semi-finals of the Czech Cup in 2003–04 and winning promotion to the top flight after finishing second in the 2004–05 Czech 2. Liga.[2] Jihlava played in the top flight for the first time in their history in 2005–06,[1] being relegated back to the second league on the last day of the season, after a loss at home against Slavia Prague.[3] Following another spell in the second league, this time of six years, the club won back a place in the top flight having finished second in the 2011–12 Czech 2. Liga.[4]
