HistoryEdit

The club was founded as FK Hejčín Olomouc in 1919, playing in the national top league for the first time in the 1982–83 season as Sigma ZTS Olomouc.[2] The club next played in the Czechoslovak First League in the 1984–85 season, remaining in the top level of football for the rest of the Czechoslovak era.[2] Olomouc reached the quarterfinals of the 1991–92 UEFA Cup, their best result in the competition.[2] In the following season's competition, the club beat Turkish side Fenerbahçe 7–1 in the second leg of their second round tie and 7–2 on aggregate,[3] before going out of the competition at the hands of Italian team Juventus.

The club qualified to play European football in 1996 after finishing as runners-up in the 1995–96 Czech First League.[4]

Olomouc finished fourth in the 1998–99 Czech First League, again qualifying for European competition.[5] The club was fined 5,000 Swiss francs in October 1999 for racist chanting in a UEFA Cup match against Real Mallorca's black players.[6]

In August 2011, the club was fined 4 million Czech koruna and deducted nine points as a result of a corruption enquiry by the Football Association of the Czech Republic.[7] Olomouc won the Czech Cup that season, but were banned by UEFA from competing in the subsequent UEFA Europa League due to the corruption sanctions.[7] In 2014 the club finished 15th in the league, resulting in their relegation after 30 years in the top level of competition.[8]
