What is PIBFAL?
Prague International Biweekly Football League (PIBFAL) is an amateur football league in Prague, Czech Republic. There are two seasons per year Apertura and Clausura. Apertura is running from April to June and Clausura, from September to December. Currently, the league consists of 5 teams: Taverners F.C., IFC Prague, Partisan Old Boys, DHL ITS F.C. and Johnson & Johnson F.C. A team is playing each team in the league twice, home and away, totalling 10 matches in one season. There is no promotion nor relegation. The main objective of the league is to spread the beautiful game among amateur football players in Prague. The main values are friendship, fair-play and respect. Most of the footballers playing the league are expats. As of May 18, there are 231 registered players from 38 countries.
First ever PIBFAL season started in September, 2016. Participating teams were Taverners, IFC, Partisan and DHL. All the matches from first and second seasons were played on Anděl Arena, the same place where Czech Republic national football team is training, located on top of the Mrázková hill. The other pitch is Horní Měcholupy. Started with the third season, a new team joined the league, Johnson & Johnson F.C. and besides Anděl Arena and Horní Měcholupy, some matches were played on other venues: SK Motorlet’s home ground, SK Motorlet 2, Pankrac Slavoj Vyšehrad, Sportovní Areál ČAFC Praha and Sportovní Areál Pražačka. Taverners are the absolute PIBFAL champions winning the title in each season so far.
