About Vojvodina Novi Sad

Fudbalski klub Vojvodina (Serbian Cyrillic alphabet: Фудбалски клуб Војводина, English: Vojvodina Football Club), or simply Vojvodina Novi Sad, is a professional Association football club from Novi Sad, Vojvodina, Serbia. The club currently competes in the Serbian SuperLiga. Vojvodina Novi Sad is the third oldest football club in the Serbian SuperLiga and one of the most successful clubs in Serbia.

History

Early years

FK Vojvodina was founded March 6, 1914 on the eve of World War I in an apartment building located at 12 Temerinska Street. The club was founded in secrecy as Austro-Hungarian authorities instituted and closely administered a ban on organized gathering in southern parts of the kingdom populated by Serbs. The club was founded by few students from Novi Sad. The new club played its first match in the village of Kovilj against local club FK Šajkaš, winning 5-0. At that time Vojvodina played in bright blue colours, however, they soon changed it to red-white, inspired by Czech club Slavia Prague.

The club's biggest successes on the national level came during the SFRY when it won the Yugoslav First League in Yugoslav League Championship and Yugoslav League Championship, and was the runner-up in 1957, 1962 and 1975. In 1967, Vojvodina reached the quarter-finals of the European Cup, before being knocked out in dramatic circumstances 2-1 on aggregate by eventual champions, Celtic Glasgow, thanks to a last minute goal by Celtic captain Billy McNeill. After winning the European Cup by beating Inter Milan 2-1 in Lisbon on May 25, 1967, Celtic players said later that Vojvodina was the best side they had faced that season.

It also participated in the Yugoslav Cup and reached the finals in 1951 and 1997. Vojvodina played in the UEFA Intertoto Cup final in UEFA Intertoto Cup 1998 against Werder Bremen. In 2007, the club once again reached the domestic cup final, again failing to take home the trophy. The Serbian Superliga 2008–09 season was a huge step for Vojvodina as the club managed to finish second in the league, behind FK Partizan but in front of Red Star Belgrade. This was the first time a team other than Red Star or Partizan finished in the top 2 since 1998. In 2010, Vojvodina was again one of the cup finalists, but lost to Red Star Belgrade.

The 2011 cup final game was marred with controversy, culminating with Vojvodina players walking off the pitch in the 83rd minute of the game, after several controversial decisions by the referee, with score standing at 1:2 in favour of Partizan. Initially, Partizan was declared winners and awarded the trophy but later this decision was revised pending an ongoing investigation by the Serbian FA. On May 16, 2011 the match was officially registered as a Vojvodina forfeit (0:3 Partizan victory).
