MFK Chrudim is a Czech football club located in Chrudim. It plays in the Bohemian Football League, which is in the third tier of the Czech Republic football league system. The club played in the second level of football in the country during the 1998–99 season.

In January 2011, a merger took place between AFK Chrudim, a club founded in 1899, and SK Chrudim. This new club became known as Městský fotbalový klub (MFK) Chrudim.[1] In June 2011, Chrudim were promoted to the third-tier Bohemian Football League, despite only finishing second in the Czech Fourth Division's Divize C, due to an extra place becoming available following the withdrawal of České Budějovice B from the division above.[2] It was also confirmed that from the start of the 2011–12 season, the club would be known as MFK Chrudim.[2]

Chrudim won the Bohemian Football League in 2012, however due to the condition of their stadium, second placed FK Pardubice were promoted in their place.[3]
