SK Benešov is a Czech football club located in Benešov. The team currently plays in the Bohemian Football League, the third tier of the Czech football system.

History[edit]

In the 1994–95 season the club played in the Czech First League, the top flight of Czech football.[1] The club started with three wins and a draw from the first six matches,[2] but was beset by financial problems. The owner and only sponsor of the club, Miroslav Švarc, was taken into police custody on charges of financial criminality,[3] team coach Jaroslav Hřebík left after the first half of the season, and the players were not paid between October and February.[3]

Benešov's results did not improve and club captain Tibor Mičinec cited the club's financial situation as the reason for a run of 24 games without a win.[2][3] As a result, the team were relegated to the Czech 2. Liga for the 1995–96 season, but fell further, spending the 2000s in the Czech Fourth Division.[citation needed]

In June 2014 the club was promoted to the Bohemian Football League under coach Luboš Zákostelský.[4]
