About Inker Zapresic

NK Inter Zaprešić is a Croatian football (soccer) club based in Zaprešić, a town northwest of the capital Zagreb originally founded in 1929. They play in the Prva HNL after they were promoted from Druga HNL at the end of the 2006–07 season. The team are nicknamed Keramičari ('The ceramics makers', because they were sponsored by a ceramics factory through much of their history) or Div iz predgrađa ('The giant from the suburb'). The team's colours are yellow and blue and they play their home games at Stadion ŠRC Zaprešić.

History

The club was originally established in 1929 as NK Sava. In 1932 the name was changed to NK Jelačić. After the end of World War II the club was renamed NK Zaprešić. The club kept that name until 1962, when they were renamed Jugokeramika, after their main sponsor, a local ceramics factory. That same year the club's ground, Stadion ŠRC Zaprešić, was built and opened. The club's first notable success came in the 1980s under the tenure of manager Zorislav Srebrić (1984–1989). Although this meant that Inker had qualified for the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, UEFA didn't let Croatian clubs to participate in European competitions due to the Croatian War of Independence, so Inker missed out on their first ever chance to participate in continental competitions. However, the club holds the distinction of playing the first ever international club match hosted by a Croatian club since Croatian independence, a friendly against SK Sturm Graz played in February 1992, and they were also the first Croatian side to play abroad, when they played a friendly against Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. in England in the summer of 1991. Inter's success between 2002 and 2005 was largely helped by players who were loaned from Croatian powerhouse NK Dinamo Zagreb (such as Luka Modrić, Vedran Ćorluka and Eduardo da Silva), so Inter's fortunes changed again once again after they were recalled to Dinamo. They slipped down to second level again in 2006, but managed to win promotion immediately in the 2006–07 Druga HNL.
