Teplitzer FK was a Czechoslovak football club from the town of Teplice, which played seven seasons in the Czechoslovak First League. It was founded in 1903.[1] The club was the first from Czechoslovakia to travel to the New World, making a 1922 trip to Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil, where the team played six matches, including one against Santos.[2] The club's best result was finishing fourth in the 1933–34 Czechoslovak First League. Teplitzer also took part in the 1934 Mitropa Cup, losing both of their matches against Juventus.[3] Rudolf Zosel was the club's top league scorer, amassing 26 goals.[1] The club later played under the German association, as Teplice became a part of Reichsgau Sudetenland in accordance with the Munich Agreement. The club ceased to exist in 1940.
