GNK Dinamo Zagreb

 

In the spring of 1911 Croatia was still a part of Austria-Hungary. Not happy with its status and position over the years Croats were always looking for ways how to express their wish for independence and its national feelings. Football was just one of them. In the April of 1911 the talk of the town was that a new Hungarian football club (Zgrbi magyar torna klub) is to be formed in Zagreb and was to be a member of Hungarian Football Association, even though all other Zagreb's football clubs were members of Croatian Sports Association which was formed in 1909. As the revolt among Croat sports people grew the feeling was that it is time for another Football club to be established in Zagreb ahead of the Hungarian one, thus Hrvatski Gradjanski Športski Klub u Zagrebu (Croatian Citizen's Sports Club in Zagreb) was founded on 26th of April 1911.

Bad Blue Boys

 

The history of BBB dates back to mid 1980s when the pioneers of the 'coloured blue' had an image of organisation. The name Bad Blue Boys was inspired by the movie Bad Boys starring Sean Penn. All over Europe and former Yugoslavia active supporters were becoming a regular part of the football spectacle. It wasn't enough to stand behind your team on home ground and so the most organised began their journeys. When said organised it doesn't mean organised by the club (there was those, but they were rare), but small groups of people in Zagreb's suburbs started forming their own ways about making themselves heard, and they were heard allright. Troughout the years other cities all over former Yugoslavia were visited in succession, Belgrade, Sarajevo, Ljubljana, Split, Niš, Subotica, Vinkovci, Mostar, Novi Sad, Banja luka, Skopje, Osijek, Rijeka. At every opportunity and in every corner of that country
Bad Blue Boys made it obvious how much they love Dinamo, Zagreb and Croatia....

On This Day...

 

Dinamo's greatest day
By Elvir Islamović uefa.com
Croatia's most successful club, NK Dinamo Zagreb's finest hour came in the 1966/67 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup when they won what remains their country's only European trophy. A talented generation of players that included striker Slaven Zambata and goalkeeper Zlatko Škorić lifted the forerunner of the UEFA Cup.
Friendly success
The signs of success were there in pre-season friendly victories against a strong AC Milan side and Celtic FC - who would become European champions later that season. Nevertheless,what followed surprised even the Dinamo players. "No one, not even us, expected such a brilliant season," said Zambata. "There was a big difference between us and the rich clubs from the west. We played against teams where one player cost more than our entire squad."
