History of Zrinjski Mostar

The history of a nation, although often reduced to them, is not made up only of rebellions and wars, victories and defeats of governours and kings. History is a mosaic of all kinds of details and colours, characters and events which we, sometimes, at a certain time distance, unjustly rank by their significance, giving something or somebody an important role and only a marginal one to another in creating identity and (self) consciousness of a nation. This can also be said of the rich history of the Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina, most specifically in Mostar. To raise the Croatian national being devotedly, to persevere in this intention in an environment which, by the concurrence of historical circumstances (400-year-long Turkish rule, almost four decades of the anational Austro-Hungarian policy, ostenibly pro-Yugoslav but essentially Greater-Serbian rule brtween the two world wars and nearly 50 years of Communism ingloriously fallen together with the vampire Serbian hegemonism), has always been reserved, and in certain periods openly intolerant of the needs and national interests of the domiciled Croats, was equal to long battles in the battlefield. That is why the effort and the achievements of thenational Croatian fighters in B-H, and in Mostar, too, in the times past should be appreciated, and every name mentioned with due respect, It was just thanks to the self-denying, proud brave and persistent Croats of Mostar that this town – at the end of the past and at the beginning of this century – was the centre of the Croatian thought. This is illustrated by the awagening of the national consciousness and the creation of cultural clubs. As early as in 1873 the city national leaders asked – inorder to get together the Croatian youth – for a permission to found the Croatian singing and music club ''Kosaèa''. The Osmanli rule was at its last gasp, but still strong enough not to allow the birth of ''Kosaèa''. The permit came 15 years later, this time from Austria-Hungary, but with a restriction which affected the essence: the club must not have in its name any national connotations! The prohibition of the Osmanli and the generosity of the Austro-Hungarian rule, ofcourse, could not hamper the Croats of Mostar in their intention to develop intheir youth a sense of belonging to a special nation and faith: as in centuries past, the Church gabe a helping hand. A church choir was founded. The things turned for the better with the birth of ''Hrvoje'' (1888), of ''Napredak'' 81902) and other Croatian associations which in the times past were sometimes falsely fondled, but morwe often obstructed or forbidden by the then authorities. If culture, as an unbordered expense of spirit of individual and collective potentials, is already respected as a runner-up of historical chronology, austere historians and even less scientisized chroniclers do not recognize sport a major importance in the foundations of the self-cognition of a nation. This is unjustified and unjust in relation to a large number of enthusiasts who, fully aware of the goal of gathering under the shelter of sport ( The competition fever even in the developed countries of the West got into full swing only about the middle of the past century.), did their best for the subsistence and benefit of clubs. Huistorical events, as contrasted with other parts of Europe, have always lagged behind in the Balkans.

And as Pierre de Coubertin in 1892 actuated and in 1896 renewed the idea of modern Olympic games, invoking Olympism as a possibility of restoring the virtues of the Hellenistic society not only in sports but also elsewhere, the authorities in the Balkan states looked with suspicion at sports clubs. The voice of Coubertin, specifically in Bosnia and Herzegovina, wiould not be heard. Although the renewer of the Olympic games published his ''Philosophic Suppositions of Modern Olympism'' after World War l, foreign masters, even before this publications, seem to have anticipated what sport, beside possible compeetition results, brings:

Faith is the first and basic characteristic both of the old and the new Olympism. By moulding his body, just as a sculptor does with a statue, the ancient athlete ''praised gods''. By doing the same, the modern athlete extols his homeland his faith and his banner'', Coubertin wrote. All the obove had to be said in order to present the circumstances in which our CSC ''Zrinjski'' c ame into being and, with frequent ups and downs, subsisted. Its present, phoenix-like rise, by no means accidentally coincident with the crumbling of the Communist rule and the victory over the Greater-Serbian hegemonism, is a proof of the indestructibility of the will of a people even in such an unobligatory segment as sport is.

The emorgence and the life of ''Zrinjski'' in already indicated unfavourable conditions have as a result a very scanty documentation about the history of the club. The material available is all right for the lovers of illustrated history, but wrinkes the eyebrows of historians. Namely, in the humble heritage of ''Zrinjski'', gleaned exclusively from personal albums of rare living footballers of the former club, there are far more photographs than written documents. The Club Calendar for 1993 is in fact the first attempt to save the traces preserved from oblivion. This photomonography wants to extend the knowledge up to the boundaries of the material available. Its full efficiency will be reached if the undeniable voids during the club events are filled up with new photographs, preserved documents or the testimonies of the living, or still inaccessible notes of the dead members of the Club ''Zrinjski'', the available documentation shows, has a notable place in the history of the Mostar sports, especially if one bears in mind that the Club is a continuation of national activity among the youth of the Mostar Croats through sports. So, as early as in 1896, some distinguishead Croats of the town asked for a sports club of the Croatian youth named ''Hrvatski sokol'' (The Croatian Hawk) to be founded, which, of course, was not granted, so that ''Prvo hercegovaèko koturaško društvo'' (The First Croatian Roll-Skating Club) was founded instead. Almost a deceade later, moreexactly in 1905, in the premises of the Mostar ''Hrvoje'', the Croatian zouth, with Prof. Kuštreb at the head, founded ''Ă

FC STEAUA BUCURESTI was founded following to a decree signed off by Mihail Lascar on the 7th of June 1947, on behalf of the National Ministry of Defense of Romania. In the summer of 1946, a few generals and high officers of the Romanian Army were seriously considering starting up a military club and an Army"s football team. A few months later, in the spring of 1947, their endeavors led to the formation of the so called "Sports Association of the Romanian Army".
The first leader of the football team was also its skipper, Stefan Septville and the newly emerged team had its first ever training camp. Despite the fact the new team had to take a play off for promoting to the second Division, it was brought up to the top Division, as a replacement for the team Carmen, which was excluded form the top football of Romania. The first coach of the team in its first season in the top Division was Coloman Braun-Bogdan.
Soon the team was named CCA and won its first ever domestic title in Romania in 1951, under the helmet of Gheorghe Popescu, one of its honorary founding members.
Between 1951 and 1961, CCA won 5 more domestic titles, till its name was changed to STEAUA, in the summer of 1961.
What did STEAUA bring as an innovation to Romanian football?
Steaua has always promoted the skillful, free flowing and spectacular football, played at an amazing pace, which brought the nickname "The Speedsters" for the mid 80`s team . That STEAUA team became the first ever Eastern European club to win the highest trophy of the European Football, the "Cup of the European Championships" (or UEFA Champions League as it is known today).
In the 1990?s, our club`s team won the domestic championship of Romania for 6 times and represented the country 3 times in a row in the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE competition.
(In dark contrast to our Bucharest archrivals, Dinamo,) Our club has always fought tooth and nail against the so called "Cooperativa", an association of clubs which allegedly fixed games towards the mutual benefit of all the parties involved and brought a poor reputation to Romanian soccer in Europe, especially after the communism was abolished in our country (December 1989).
All together, STEAUA BUCURESTI trophy cabinet is by far the richest in the country, as our team won 23 domestic titles, 20 National Cups and 5 Romania`s Supercups

The STEAUA stadium is arguably the most fancy football arena in the whole country. Situated in the south-west of the capital city, Bucharest, in the “Ghencea” neighborhood, it is part of the sport complex with the same name. It is a typical football only ground, with no athletic track. The building was unveiled in April 1974, when our team drew level with a Serbian team, STEAUA- OFK Belgrade, 2-2. In the early 1990’s, the floodlighting was set up and the first game played with the arena fully lit was STEAUA-FC Bacau, 4-1, on the 14th of August 1991.
Five years later, in 1996, the whole arena was fully refurbished, all the places are seated since then and the players’ hotel is a four star establishments, with all the facilities required.
Our club stadium used to be the home ground of the Romanian national football team, which enjoyed here a great spell in the mid 90’s.
All the STEAUA fans are deeply proud of our team stadium, as a high degree of comfort and safety is provided, so games can be played and watched at the highest standards, as the World and Europe governing football bodies, FIFA and UEFA respectively, demand from the top clubs.
A closed circuit surveillance system is fully operational all the times. There are 7 fixed and 9 mobile cameras, which can follow all the fans and spectators right from the entry gates. Another surveillance camera system is installed and fully functional at the so called “Official Stand”, to be used by the security forces in emergency situations.

The Europeans Champions? Cup- the big hit of STEAUA in 1986

On the 7th of May STEAUA very deservedly wrote its major piece of history. A year before, when our football needed mostly, a brand new team was born, destined to become a year later the Queen of the European Football: STEAUA BUCURESTI.
In the summer of 1985, coaches Emeric Ienei and Anghel Iordanescu made up a team, with a few young players, a few experienced ones, but all hungry for glory. That team made history for both our club and Romania. All of us should know this line-up by heart like a sweet piece of poetry: Duckadam, Iovan, Bumbescu, Belodedici, Barbulescu, T. Stoica, Boloni, Balint, Majearu, Lacatus, Piturca, Stangaciu, Weissenbacher, Balan, Pistol, M. Radu.

"Who are these Romanians?"

The sixteen players from above started the most successful yet campaign for the club on the 16th of September 1986, in the country of Prince Hamplet, denmark, again Vejle Bold Klub (including the former Barcelona player, Alan Simonsen). Our team put up a decent away performance and the game ended up with a hopeful 1-1 draw, M. Radu II being responsible for our goal that night.
A couple of weeks later, on our home ground, our team trashed the Danes, 4-1 and went through. This was the first maturity test for our rising ?star? team.
Next came the champions of Hungary, Honved Budapest. The away game, on the 23rd of October 1985, was our team?s first defeat of the campaign, 0-1, despite of a very attacking display from our players. Justice was done a couple of weeks later, when ?The Speedsters? beat the Hungarian champions 4-1, much to the delight of a capacity crowd on Steaua stadium.
The next round STEAUA seemed to take a more approachable Finnish champion team, Kuusysi Lahti. The first game, played on our stadium on the 5th of March 1986, on a muddy pitch, ended up with a disappointing goalless draw and a warning about the strength and abilities of our opponents. In the away game, played on the Lahti stadium, with the prominent statue of the legendary athlete Paavo Nurmi watching from above, STEAUA won 1-0 and made the semifinals of the competition.
At this level now, we could not hope for an easy draw at all. When the strong clubs of Europe saw that STEAUA went already so far up in the contest, they raised their eye browses and asked themselves:? Who are these mighty Romanians?? The draw was made and the next name out of the hat for STEUA was the Belgian champions, Anderlecht of Brussells. On the 2nd of April 1986, on the ?Constant van den Stock? arena, a lucky 1-0 scoreline, through a 75th minute goal of Enzo Scifo, really flattered the home side. In spite of the final score, STEAUA played a game to be proud of.
On the next day, the headlines of ?Les Sports? daily newspaper were:? We have warned you, Anderlecht. You should have not overlooked the Romanian champions. Even though they do not have much history in Europe at the moment, as other dark horses like Bayern Munich and others, STEAUA played a very smart game on the Astrid park arena: they were able to impose their short passes game pattern, closed all the lanes to their box, played the game at their own pace, with a smile on their face, no panic and no complexes at all in front of their more illustrious opponents. Even the local crowd was delighted with their performance?.
The second game of the aggregate encounter really made its way into the golden book of our club history. On the 16th of April, in front of a boisterous 30000 capacity crowd, a dream came true: 3-0 to STEAUA and they booked a place in the Champions Cup final.

Sevilla 1986 ? a landmark for our Club and for the Romanian football

Now STEAUA were regarded as the hot team of the European football, following to their amazing run in this campaign. Only the simple act of presence, alongside FC Barcelona, for the most prestigious European Cup final in Seville, was above the wildest dreams of any Romanian fan.
7th of May 1986, stadium "Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan" in Seville, FC Barcelona- STEAUA Bucharest in the European Champions Cup final.
70000 fanatics of the richest club in the world at that time were ready for a ?fiesta?. None of them were even thinking their Spanish favorites will miss the chance in front of the king of Spain, Juan Carlos and his royal family. Sincerely, not even ourselves, glued on our TV sets in Romania, were expecting for too much, let alone to win the trophy. We just wanted STEAUA to put up a decent performance and go down in glory. It was only our players and coaching staff who believed in their chance and played the game of their lives. They just confided in themselves, played and won, mere and simple. After a 0-0 in the normal time (we all thought that the scoreline might have been the same even if the game was played for the rest of the night), two halves of 15 minutes extra time followed and then the penalty shoot-out which STEAUA duly won, 2-0, goals from Balint and Lacatus.
After that game, STEAUA made its way into the history of the European football, just as its wonderful actors involved in the play. STEAUA also become the first European team from behind ?The Iron Curtain? to win the ultimate European Clubs trophy.
Sevilla 1986 is still the landmark of our Romanian football, everything is reported to it even now. STEAUA win against Barcelona was also the dawning of a new generation of players, who starred for the ?Golden Generation? of the Romanian national team.
The 7th of May 1986 will be the day to remember for all our STEAUA fans, the time when our golden boys produced the supreme satisfaction (we can hardly imagine to reproduce that now or in the near future) of winning the European Champions Cup

Already 1904. an initiation cropped up on Kispest on his front onto the acclimatisation of the football. Kispesti Sport Club was formed on a name a sports club's team consisting of students was entered it youth at a football league, you would eat more but not to know about the club's fate. An enthusiastic teacher onto dr. Varga Bálint initiation Éder Kispesti Athletikai Club formed it in a restaurant with his companions-ot* 1908. August on 10. The athletics, gymnastics and the football was inserted between the sports after a smaller debate beside the fencing. The president dr. Varga Bálint, the club administering Bede István the fencers, and Mayer Béla from the footballers' part Latvian. The fundamental rule but the members did not accept it, Varga Bálint took offence and resigned. The association's cases a year Bede István, who was biased towards the indoor sports primary, arranged it. The debate sharpened continual between the two parties, the club was tormented by the material difficulties moreover. Onto the alleviation of this 1909. February 1. KAC you direct a ball, for the income of which (100 crowns) his distribution raised a newer debate. 1909. the footballer started up on his spring life on Katona réten (Fő u and sandlot between Batthyány u). The first unofficial matches Erzsébetfalva, Lőrinc, they were against Rákos liget and Rákoscsaba teams. The contrasts between the two parties the two patrons, Schmoch Károly and Szűcs László tried to settle it, not with many successes. 1909. the danger of the disintegration threatened KAC in his July. Szűcs László gave up the association because of the many inner debates vice president and Krausz Jenő, the footballer a department's leader.1909. August on 3, Kispesti was formed finally on the committee for re-election assembly after the first initiation with almost a year Atlétikai Club with football,box,atletics,tennis,bicycle,gymnastics,wrestling and fencing.

The 1911 year brought serious changes in the association's life. One of Kispest richest citizens, Csimár Károly KAC president was an architect and donated 1000 crowns to the club immediately. This was extraordinary help for poor KAC in those days. The 1911-12. yearly III. class Kispest finished in a championship on the 8. place. Performs his first international match in this year in Brünn, which one 2:onto 1 wins it against FC Brünn.

The team celebrates his first championship title in 1913 the III. in a class. The association's own orbit gets to passing in the same year in Sárkány utcában which the adversaries dubbed a later dragon cave appropriately.

It 1913-14-es in a championship year the high increase of the popularity of the football, the rapid spreading of the sport the Budapest associations' staff numbers from 55 onto 71 enriched it. Because of this it MLSZ reorganizing the championship was obliged. It MLSZ - the much entry, and not it broke because of minor warring between associations finally - pausing the championships temporary was obliged and it left organizing the different prize contests and his transaction to associations.It MTK guided it camp (the truth party ones) was playing for the Hungária goblet, it FTC köré rallied peace party though for the Auguszta goblet. On 1915 of his springs - after the reconciliation of the two camps - one-turn Amatőr Liga championship it was issued with a sick-note, with 14 participants. For Kispest the II. class would have come next, but on an incomprehensible manner Pestkörnyéki goblet the association assigned it to a championship where he got the 2. place. Since it is MLSZ rather disorder in that time and reorganized the championship steady, it did not inspire a surprise that KAC got into the first class in that manner in the next year, that only was not playing once in the second line!

1914. autumn a world war broke and was not a championship because of this. Instead for the best teams it MLSZ issued Auguszta Serleg with a sick-note. It at this time played match KAC got the 4. place. The mobilisation KAC full first lost his team. Marched in onto military service novae, Kollarik, Simon, tailor, treasure, Kiliti, Boldog, Jurcsó II., Schiller II., his Kóny and Papek. Only Krausz Jeno for his enormous work, that the team did not go downhill.

Autumn in 1915,the got it the

Finally 1916. a September played it on 13 first NB I-es championship match on KAC Kispest, in Sárkány utcában. The result of this:

Kispesti AC - III. district TVE 0:3 1919-20. sensational starts! The 7. turning 100%-os KAC gives a performance, the champion but stops the march and 5:2 res beat our team. The next Kispest figures in a turning brilliant again already and Ülloi steals a dot from a road. On the end of the championship onto a big surprise 2. on place completed the guard. The silver medal winning team of the championship: cobbler, Saguly (Krebsz), Túri, Buda, Blasnik (Tóth), Stallmach, Boldog (Norik), Kiszely (bony), Jeszmás, Eisenhoffer, Jeny Rudolf.

1921. bursts out on his end the kispesti professional lawsuit. Because of the big poverty the players dresses, shoes and other things were accepted, and this was a sin then. As a result of denunciation - although all teams did the same one - the certain professional lawsuit that ruined this next begins the onto much meant team. Our best players are forbid, the big associations take them away then. finds Kispest way away in this manner between many people bony, Jeszmás, Jeny and Eisenhoffer.

1926. his December with golden letters is written into the association's history book. Repeated mtch - 1:it was 1 first derby - the kispesti boys overcame it in 160 minute fierce fights BEAC-ot* 3:onto 2, and Hungarian Cup was won. The cup winner team: Balla, Cesznák, Grohmusz, Mádi, Gregor, Marton, peppery, shepherd, Jurassic, Hecktl, Mátéffy.

An era finished with the end of the 1926 championship season in the story of the Hungarian football. The amateur ended, or rather ál-amatőr era. The thirty-fold years an economic crisis at the beginning of aggravated the situation of the Hungarian football, which is newer in taxes on the one hand, long on the other hand it ál-amatőrizmus appeared in his dangerous form. That fact hurried this process, that the adjacent Austrian ones - first in Europe! - the professionism was introduced on 1925 of his autumns already. It MLSZ - studying the situation of the Austrian football - declared it: the Hungarian football is reorganized and reason the professionism is introduced. 1926. the separation occurred on his summer, and with this the transformation of the organism of our football. The was formed professional associations grouped themselves into two leagues, the rest of the amateur teams played Budapest and country for the district championship in different groups.

Firat in 1938 Kispest enters the Central European cup. His adversary Internazionale (on his then name Ambrosiana).

In Milan: AS Ambrosiana Inter - Kispest FC 4:2 (0:2) on Budapest: Kispest FC - AS Ambrosiana Inter 1:1 (0:1)

Although our team was eliminated praise concerned it for the firmness after all.

1940-41. Hungarian Cup semifinal we were left.

In 1944 after the defeat of Nagyvárad and the gamma, saint László Fradi cannot stop Kispest in the final of a cup yet! The victory enhances his value, that we overcame the green ones on Ülloi street! The cup winner team: Mindszenti, Olajkár I., Perjési, Bozsik, Gazdag, Zalai, Egresi, Béres, Nemes, Mészáros, Puskás. Coach: Sen. Puskas Ferenc.

1946-47-ben the spine of the big HONVED team of the future takes shape: Kiss Mihály - Szalay István (Sipos I), Herédi (Rákóczi) - Bozsik, Patyi, Bányai (Simonyi) - Béres (Cserjés), Budai I, Mészáros, PUSKAS, Babolcsay compilation team on the 2. place makes.

1949-50. The Golden Team was eaten for his development. The Honved won it by big superiority for his existence first his championship. Quasi with the same one the the team won the championship by eleven, since altogether 15 players had an opportunity to speak in the course of the championship. Puskás Öcsi was the top goal scorer. One of the happiest days of my life the today's. There is not a more valuable gift for Edzo, than it, if his team gains a championship. - made a statement to it Puskas Sen.

1950. his autumn. Because of the political changes at this time already Bp. Honved the team denudes everything on a name (championship title, gunner again top goal scorer with 25 goals, and the player of the year who would be something else, than junior). He did not manage to win Night Cup final simply, the textile maker 3:onto 2 triumphed over us.

1951. Only silver in the championship, but the top goal scorer title gets onto Kispest again, one for which thank you can be said to a coachman this time.

1952.Honved locked the championship with altogether five tie ones! With his dynamic team game and to fight surpassed the bastion with his knowledge. The team was able to innovate always in the second half-time, since was able to translate from a losing position repeatedly. Merchant Jenő put 18 players on stage. Kocsis Sándor was the top goal scorer. The Olympic champion's chosen spine the Hungarian soldier players got it, legendary Bozsik Cucu was the player of the year though.

1953. Again only silver, mutual Puskas again top goal scorer. A newer triumph is born in this year, the Honved was Húsvéti Torna winner, defeating Austria and Rapid. In this year August Népstadion is inaugurated on 20 where we defeat Szpartak Moszkva 3:2 res.

According to many people Wolwerhampton played in 1954-Honved a match gave the last shove to the champions' league!

The Hungarian championship the much tour and chosen matches were squeezed into background a little bit (World Cup). It may have occurred in this manner that the 1954 championship ended in 1955. The kispesti orbit it was built up in this year, because of this the Honved where the népligeti Vasas stadion, where on Üllő úton, where performed his domestic matches in Népstadion though.The legendary 9:a 7 title bout overran to the next year. The kispesti a team shot 100 goals first inside a championship, and won it naturally. Coachman Sándor denuded everything because he is the top goal scorer title beside it the player of the year was gathering it in title.

In 1955 the championship title two of our top goal scorers became a breast (Czibor and Mach 20-20 obtained a goal equally). We lost Hungarian Cup in return for the ironworker in the final mutual 3:onto 2 .

1956. The year of the revolution, the championship is interrupted. Although our team depends on the edge and gained it presumably would be, a champion is not advertised. Húsvéti Torna we won it again. CEC but does not bring a success, Bilbao knocks the Hungarian soldier , but the team is heading towards the collapse already at this time. Against the Spanishs both we were playing abroad (Bilbao 2:3, Brussels 3:3). The team goes to make raids into Brazil then where more matches are played. The Honved beats it Botafogo (4:2) and Flamengo (3:2,6:4).

The power quelling the revolt participant Honved imposed punishments on players on the tour.

After the revolution Puskas,a coachman and Czibor did not return into the country which was a huge blow onto the number of Honved and the whole Hungarian football.

The audience did not turn away from the team in the future, since...

...the 1957-58-as they were playing before many spectators in the future in Népstadion in a championship (against an ironworker in spring 45, in autumn 80, it they were 65 thousand people on a sign against MTK). The Hungarian soldier gathered himself up and the champion was behind with altogether a dot behind MTK. Tichy Lajos, who is gathering in this title four times yet, is the new top goal scorer's name for himself in 1959. The Honved gains the final of the Central European cup.

One of the best Hungarian players of times said goodbye to the active game in 1962 on all of them, Bozsik József. I do not say goodbye finally, everything subjects me to Kispest. The football and I would not be able to live simply without Kispest! - Bozsik said it after the farewell with with eyes full of tears.

1963. on his autumn hair híjján* the team was a champion, but the second needed place with goal average. In the next year 1926. Magyar wins it again cup BHSE. The cup winner team: Takács, Dudás, Sipos, Marosi, Nógrádi, Vági, Nagy A., Komora, Tichy, Tóth K., Katona. Edzo: Kispéter Mihály., . coach: Kispéter Mihály. This was not a bad year since in the championship the 2. the team, and the top goal scorer title gets onto Kispest in Tichy Lajos person.

In 1965 only single Húsvéti Torna a victory gets to the glory list.

A new team is being built in 1969. With the little conductor's command, na and with Kozma Misi goals the silver medal the team marches. In the championship and Újpesti Dózsa can stop it simply in the cup Honvedot.
The Central Europa Cup Kispest 3-1 beat it with summing up who Italian SS Lazio.

In 1971 burn will be a top goal scorer (this yet in 1974 and does it in 75), and the player of the year gets out from Kispest, the all sucks in Szűcs Lajos person.

In 1976 in UEFA Cup Internazionale-Kispest 0-1,on the second match though 1-1-es tie in Népstadion.

The team wins the champions' gymnastics against old rival Újpest in 1977, the purple ones win the championship by 1 dot before Honved mutual.

In 1978 the star team of the age, Ajax visited onto Budapest.the In Népstadion 4-1-es you suffer defeat.the second match 2-0-ra Ajax gained it,we were left long in this this year entirely the quarter final we marched!

The championship title waited for for a long time came in 1980. 25 years it was necessary to expect it for this success. Legendary Tichy Lajos was the team's trainer. His work laid the foundations for the later successes.
The octogenarian years in the club's life, the second aranykorszak was. 3 championship golds and a cup victory enriched the treasure house with Komora Imre command first. 1988-89-ben we may have been glad with the Bicske leadership of two championship golds and a goblet of success. A trough of a sea followed this, the wind of the falling out touched our team yet really, since we dropped from the first class almost on the classifier.In the next year but we are on the peak again, this time with Mezey György command. From Champions League one of the best teams of the age Italian Sampdoria made our team say goodbye. On Kispest 2-1 re we overcame the Italian ones, on the rematch, in Genova but 3-1 es we suffered defeat. This this far our last championship title in 1993 for a Finnish master, Martti Kuuselának we may say thank you for it. We managed to fish big fish out again in Champions League, Manchester United stood in the our way this time.
The club got into a landing branch then unfortunately. A Hungarian goblet of success enriched our glory list yet in 1996, but Kispest started decline slowly. Évről-évre the team battled against the falling out. We were not able to keep our good players. A political pressure weighed heavily on the association beside the troubles, was not a surprise in this manner, that the darkest year of the club's story ensued in 2003. What is our existence occurred yet never, we were eliminated it from NB I.
We were disposed towards it near in this year, that the legendary kispesti let a team come to an end finally. The squad was replaced totally quasi. Gálhidi György took over the team's control, and did a miracle to the boys under short time. The second-class start aim we won it by a victory, and we qualified for Hungarian Cup finals. We lost the final though, but we obtained a right in this manner UEFA Cup onto a departure.
The almost the nadir of our centenarian history, after the second-class performance but we sticked in the forefront again - in 2005 the 11., onto a year onto him on the 13. place completed it already Budapest Honvéd on a name character kispesti team. Changes with an earthquake implement were going on next on 2006 of his summers: the club onto country Italian chief proprietor threatening with moving him, Piero Pinit Hemingway Group relaid it obtaining 100 percentile property parts.George F. Hemingway deciding on his sense on the dugout Aldo Dolcetti Supka Attila observed it, after a six-month grace period thorough vérfrissítésen the framework went through, than it till then neglected, but record Bozsik stadium was renewed in full whole one's with velocity. The successful spring the renewed, Bozsik stadium with an European standard initiating began an parade, on a match with many goals on which he is the guest of Vác into 6 splendid a set goal may have been booked into their net. The vernal big march for the calm material background, for the ordered circumstances, was due for the good vocational work. Under some months from the team battling against falling out till then - based on the vernal results - was vanguard. The apex of the season the May 9, Hungarian Cup was his final, on which he is 11 after a year again,Kispest he had a triumph begot!

HNK Hajduk Split is the most famous and successful Croatian football club, one of two most popular football clubs in the country.Hajduk is based in the city of Split, Croatia. Its main rival is Dinamo Zagreb.
The club was founded in the famous, centuries old pub Flek in Prague (then also a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) by a group of students from Split (Fabijan Kaliterna, Lucijan Stella, Ivan Šakić and Vjekoslav Ivanišević). They went to the pub right after a match between Sparta and Slavia and decided it was high time their own town founded its professional club. They all knew how popular the sport was back home, and how well their friends back home played. The club was officially registered with the authorities on February 13, 1911. The name originates from the hajduks, romanticized bandits that fought the Ottoman Turks. The founders subsequently designed the club's emblem, and a group of Catholic nuns from a monastery in Split created copies which were distributed to fans.

Hajduk gathered the pro-Croat party of citizens of Split, Croat unionists or puntari. That is why the club specifically has the name "hrvatski nogometni klub" (Croatian football club) and has the Croatian coat-of-arms in its logo. The club itself was against the Austro-Hungarian government's policy of not allowing the unification of Croatian provinces and keeping them separated (the government and the emperor did not allow the reunion of Dalmatia with the rest of Croatia). Hajduk reached its first period of glory in the late twenties, when it won two Yugoslav championships, breaking the domination of clubs from Belgrade and Zagreb. Particularly interesting is the club's war episode. After the Italian occupation of Split during World War II, the club ceased to compete in defiance, and declined an offer to join the Italian first division. In 1944, the team and staff clandestinely joined the Yugoslav partisans on the island Vis and continued to play as an official partisan army team. After the war, the partisan leader and later president of Yugoslavia, Tito, (impressed by the club's proficency and its unique Dalmatian spirit) invited Hajduk to move to Belgrade and become an official army team. But, Hajduk's players refused this lucrative offer and continued playing in their hometown. The club, however, continued to be Tito's favorite long after the war. Hajduk had its best years in the 1970s. The so-called "zlatna generacija" (Golden Generation) won five consecutive cups and three championships in the 1972 to 1979 period. It was the second most successful club in Yugoslavia far outstripping the third, its present day rival, Dinamo Zagreb. In the summer of 1991, Hajduk restored its traditional emblem including the Croatian chequy and removing the red star from it.

The Hajduk kit is white shirt and blue shorts.

Hajduk won two Yugoslav (kingdom) championships, seven Yugoslav championships, eight Croatian championships, as well as nine Yugoslav Cup titles, four Croatian Cups and six super cups.

Abroad, the club has reached the quarterfinals of the Champions Cup (now UEFA Champions League) three times (last time 1995), and two European semifinals: Cup Winners' Cup 1973, and UEFA Cup 1984.

Hajduk is famous for its youth school. It is one of the most prolific producers of high quality footballers which often continue careers in famous European teams. Some of Hajduk's former players include: Alen Bokšić (ex Juventus, Lazio, Middlesbrough), Robert Jarni (ex Juventus, Betis, Real Madrid), Slaven Bilić (ex Karlsruhe, Everton), Igor Štimac (ex West Ham, Derby County), Milan Rapaić (Perugia, Fenerbahçe, Standard Liege), Igor Tudor (Juventus), Ivica Šurjak (ex Paris SG), Luka Peruzović (ex Anderlecht), Aljoša Asanović (ex PAO), Ivan Buljan (ex Hamburger SV) and Zlatko Vujović (ex Bordeaux).

When the Croatian national team won third place at the 1998 World Cup in France, amongst the first 11, there were 5 former Hajduk players.

Since 1979, Hajduk plays at the Poljud stadium. It was built by the Yugoslavian federal government for the 1979 Mediterranean games that were held in Split. Thanks to lavish federal funding, the stadium is quite impressive, not so much in size (though it is large) as it is in architecture, having one of the most distinctive and beautiful designs in the world at the time of its construction.

Before that, Hajduk played its games at the "Kod stare plinare" stadium ("By the old gas facility"), also known as "Stari plac" ("Old Square") or "Staro Hajdukovo" ("Old Hajduk's"). Before the transformation that area into the football pitch, the area was known as "Kraljeva njiva" ("King's Field") and it was part of a military camp.

The fans are called Torcida (since 1950) as they took their name after their idolized Brazilian fan groups, which are named torcidas, from the Portuguese 'torcer', to cheer on. Supporters popularly call the players of Hajduk bili (dialect for 'bijeli', plural form of white) and are the oldest organized supporters' group in Europe.

Hajduk is by far the most popular sport team in the Croatian region of Dalmatia. Hajduk also has a strong fan base throughout the rest of Croatia, especially in littoral areas, as well as in Slavonia. Hajduk is also a very important part of the region's identity.

In the former Yugoslavia, Hajduk was the team that had supporters all over the country, among all national and religious communities (not only among the Croats); no other club achieved that. It is important to mention the big popularity of Hajduk among Albanians in socialist Yugoslavia, especially in Kosovo, where the popularity of Hajduk can be compared with that in Dalmatia.

Outside of Croatia, Hajduk also has many supporters throughout the rest of the world. It is said that Hajduk has never played a single game anywhere in the world without at least a small group of Torcida in the stands. Countries with huge fan clubs membership include Brazil, Chile New Zealand, Australia and Canada - mostly countries with significant Croat immigration from Dalmatia.

Bozsik Stadium

Address: H-1194 Budapest, Ujtemeto u. 1-3.
Capacity: 10.000 (6.000 seated, 4.000 stands)
Pitch size: 105 x 68 m
Training grounds: 1 grass, 1 soil, 1 clay court.


Not far from the present day stadium, at the site of the present cemetery, was built the first own football ground of the club. The supporters gave an estate for KAC at the end of Sárkány (Dragon) Street. A fundraising was initiated among the local craftsmen and tradesmen and it was Ferenc Polacsek (hotel owner) and Ferenc Herbacsek (wood trader) who gave major financial contributions to build the sports complex. The inauguration of the Sárkány Street complex was in 1913, hence the name Dragon's Cave - given later by the visiting teams. On 18 November 1926, Kispest city voted to give 500 million to modernize the Sárkány Street football ground. In the year 1935, the wooden stands and the buildings burned down. The chairman, József Molnár, saved the club from a crisis and in the same year he built bigger and more modern stands instead. The new Kispest AC sports complex was inaugurated on 2 January 1938. The new arena is situated at the terminal of tram no. 42 and it had a capacity of 8.000 (5.000 seats and 3.000 stands). By then, a warm bath was also available, which was a great achievement those days. 12 February 1939, a new chapter begins in the life of Kispest - a modern football ground was inaugurated with a capacity of 15.000. The pitch was already covered by grass.
In 1945, right after the war, the people of Kispest started reconstruction works: restored the grass, mended the concrete roofs of the stadium. They built a training ground on the area reaching as far as the cemetery.
In 1955, the complex was rebuilt and extended; the team even had to play all of its matches away.
20 May 1967, the lights were inaugurated with a friendly match against Szombathelyi Haladás. The stadium had a capacity of 25.000 by then. The team could use a training ground with grass and one with clay.
It was the Kispest stadium first to get its name after a football player in Hungary. Who else would have deserved it better than József Bozsik, a true star of Kispest with 101 caps in the national team? 1 October 1986, a spectacular show preceded the Bp. Honvéd-Bröndby European Cup match to inaugurate Bozsik Stadium. Before the kick off, Lajos Tichy said a few words on behalf of the players, and Chairman Sándor Kiss also held a speech. The show ended with fireworks. The only regret was that the game did not end quite as well as the 15.000 supporters were hoping: 2-2 at the final result, which meant elimination after loosing at the first leg in Denmark.
The stadium was given new, stronger lights for this occasion and the grass was also replaced with a new one. Furthermore, a heating system was installed under the pitch. The field was made longer and wider. A 20-rooms hotel was also built inside the stadium with a restaurant for 200. It was 1990, when significant reconstructions were made for the last time. The lockers, bathrooms were renewed. The old gym-hall was turned into a VIP club.
