FK Varnsdorf is a Czech football club located in Varnsdorf, Czech Republic. On 25 June, 2010, the club was promoted to the second tier of the Czech football league system, despite finishing only 6th in the previous season's ČFL. This was due to FK Bohemians Praha (Střížkov) not being awarded a license for the second tier for the 2010–2011 season, and the teams from ČFL in positions 2–5 refusing the chance to play in the next league.[1] It currently plays in the Czech 2. Liga. In 2011 the club changed its name from SK Slovan Varnsdorf to FK Varnsdorf.[2]

The team's biggest success in recent history was finishing 2nd in the 2014–15 Czech National Football League and earning promotion to the Czech First League for the first time in club history. However, they forfeited the promotion due to their stadium Městský stadion v Kotlině failing to meet league requirements.[3]
