VK Prostějov surprisingly finished the 2021/22 Czech Women’s Volleyball Championship at the highest step of the podium.
VK Prostějov celebrated the 11th Czech title in club history, and that in a season when no one gave them any chances to achieve so. In the 2021/22 UNIQA Extraliga ženy playoff finals, the team from the country’s historical region of Moravia eliminated TJ Ostrava and the trophy defenders VK Dukla Liberec. Then, in the series for the gold medal with VK Královo Pole, Prostějov won the opening two duels, and after Monday’s defeat on the road, they prevailed at the home 3-1 today, becoming the first team in the modern history of the Czech women’s volleyball to win the title as the 5th team after the regular season.
Prostějov celebrated the title after a four-year break, actually after the end of the golden era (2009-2018). The key factor of the season was the arrival of the two reinforcements, Klára Faltínová and Slovak Karin Šunderlíková, during the season. It was the latter, who came from the Italian second division, who transformed the team. However, there’s no reason for the Královo Pole players to be sad. The team from Brno won the Czech Cup this season.
