They will begin with a game between Sparta Prague and Vítkovice on Sunday and conclude with a clash between Zlín and Hradec Králové on January 13. During the celebrations large-scale fan polls will be conducted to decide on the greatest event in the league’s history and the best five players. The first ever Extraliga game took place on 3 January 1937.
