The Czech Republic is about to change its name

Apparently “Czech Republic” isn’t the easiest thing to print on sports clothes

The Czech Republic is set to change its name to Czechia, to make it easier for sports teams and companies to use it on clothes and products.

Pronounced “Check-ee-ya”, the new name will not replace the old one completely, but will become the official short geographic name.

The country has had its name since 1993, when Czechoslovakia broke in two to form the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
