Jan Vorel (born 1 September 1978) is a Czech retired football defender who played in the Czech First League principally for Blšany and Dukla Prague. He represented his country at youth level between 1997 and 1998.
Born in Prague, he played for the youth teams of Prague clubs Viktoria Žižkov and FK Dukla Prague before joining the ranks of FK Chmel Blšany youth side aged 14. After a loan spell at FC Xaverov Horní Počernice he broke into the senior team at Blšany where he spent the majority of his career, making 197 appearances for the club, aiding their promotion to the 1st Division in 1998. He served as club captain during his time at Blšany.
After FK Chmel Blšany's relegation from top tier football in 2006, Vorel he was loaned out to Slavia Prague, with the option for a permanent transfer at the end of the 2006/07 season. He made 8 starts, 11 appearances overall, during his stay at Slavia, helping the team to second place in the league. The club however decided against signing the player.
In 2008 Vorel returned to the Czech Republic, signing for FK Dukla Prague, the club he played for as a youngster. Following Dukla's promotion in 2011, Vorel played in the Czech First League for the first time in more than four years on 29 July 2011. He functioned as captain during his time at Dukla.In November 2012, Vorel extended his contract with Dukla until the summer of 2014. In March 2013 Vorel played the shortest match of his life, being sent off after just 20 seconds in a league match for Dukla against Plzeň, which Dukla went on to lose 4–0. Vorel was again sent off in the fourth match of the 2013–14 season, receiving a four-game suspension following a two-footed challenge on Slavia striker Dávid Škutka. In October 2013 he scored Dukla's third goal in a 4–0 Czech Cup victory against Pribram. He left Dukla and ended his professional career, joining amateur side Všenorský SK in the summer of 2015.
