The Marketa Stadium in Prague is the only venue ever used for the Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix and in 2016 hosted its twentieth annual Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix in 2016.

Directions: Stadium Marketa can be found in the north-west part of Prague, just above the Brevnov Monastry, in a quiet residential area of Brevnov - Prague 6, about 20 minutes via public transport from the city centre. From City Center to Speedway in 15 minutes The newly opened section of the metro line A makes Speedway fans' travels around Prague much easier. Travelling from Wenceslas Square to Petriny takes only twelve minutes these days, with no further need of transfer. The line A heading to the Nemocnice Motol terminal. Marketa Stadium is located in the district of Petriny, therefore it is necessary to get off at a stop of the very same name. Most people would be heading towards the escalators but the speedway fans should aim for the elevators at the opposite side of the platform. Those would bring up the spectators to Brunclikova Street, which leads right to Marketa. It is approximately three-minute walk between the metro and the stadium. There is also a direct bus connection to the stadium, bus No. 191 from the airport. Nad Marketoubus stop is right next to the stadium. The stadium is also still accessible by tram.
