Sydney Football Club Prague, commonly known as Sydney Prague or just Prague, was founded by Czech migrants in 1957. The club amalgamated in 1973 with Sydney Soccer Club Yugal and became known as Yugal-Prague. However, the late-1950s and early-1960s were the club's glory days.
Prague had Australia's best goalkeeper in Ron Lord and was the team where Les Scheinflug would make his name before establishing a coaching career. In March 1958, Austrian internationals Leopold Baumgartner and Karl Jaros joined the club and were later followed by Andy Saghi, Erich Schwartz, Walter Tamandl, Herbert Ninaus and brother Erwin.
Other notable players include Geoff Sleight, Roy Blitz, David Zeman, Raul Blanco, Gary Manuel and Jimmy Rooney. Prague was briefly coached by Jozef Venglos, who led Australia from 1967 to 1969 and later went on to manage Sporting Clube de Portugal, Aston Villa, Fenerbahçe and Celtic. He also had stints as national team coach of Czechoslovakia, Malaysia, Slovakia and Oman.
Prague finished as premiers in the New South Wales First Division in 1959 (also champions), 1960, 1961 and 1963. They were a great cup side, winning the Ampol Cup in 1959, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1965 and 1969. This design pays tribute to one of Australia's pioneering football clubs and its iconic red, white and blue stripes.
