The first play-off match against OFK Titograd was lost 1:3, but in the home match at the Stadium near the Morava on July 15, 1962 with six goals in the second half, FK Borac secured a promotion to the Second Federal League.

For many years Borac played in the Second Federal League but the dream of the promotion to the First League of FR Yugoslavia came through in 1994 when Borac got promoted for the first time.
