Update: 15.09.2022 07:41

Prague – A spicy fight for several actors will start the new season of the Tipsport extraleague hockey today. In the first round, Brno and Karlovy Vary will meet, between which several transfers took place in the summer. Coach Martin Pešout returned from West Bohemia to Kometa’s substitution team, who also took national team forward Jakub Flek with him. Defender Tomáš Bartejs headed in the opposite direction. In the past, a number of other players, led by Kometa captain Martin Zaťovič, wore the opponent’s shirt.

“I’m already looking forward to Thursday. It will be special, but even if it wasn’t Vary, I’d still be looking forward to it. It’s the start of the season and I’m looking forward to the Brno fans who will push us forward,” said Flek, who spent practically entire senior career.

“I’m in contact with a few guys from Vary. I also have a girlfriend from Vary, but now she’s with me in Brno, so she has to support Kometa,” smiled the 29-year-old striker. “There will probably be some heckling, but it doesn’t matter who we play. The match against the Vars would come one day anyway. It’s just a bit more spicy that it’s in the first round,” added Flek.

Even coach Pešout, who led Energia for five seasons, is trying to take the game with an open mind. “I was in Vary on Friday, where the home team played the last warm-up match. Of course, I also heard something. One player even called me, I won’t say who, that he was writing a premium on us. But we will probably do the same with Cuba in Brno.” said Pešout.

His successor on the Karlovy Vary bench was David Bruk, who will make his extra-league coaching debut on Thursday at the age of 53. “I’m looking forward to it. It’s the premiere for me with a new team and in a new competition. I would of course be very happy if we had a successful start to the season,” he said on the club’s website.

Even Bruk realizes that the match will have a special charge for many participants. “However, I don’t take it completely personally. For me, the adrenaline and emotions will rather consist in the fact that it will be my first extra-league game. We want to enter the season well. If the start goes well, then of course the players can breathe better, they play more freely and also implement the team is calmer,” said Bruk.
