About Napredak Krusevac

FK Napredak (Serbian Cyrillic: ФK Haпpeдaк) is a football (soccer) club based in the city of Kruševac, Serbia. The name Napredak means "progress" in Serbian.

History

The club was founded on December 8, 1946, through a fusion of three local area clubs: Zakić, Badža and 14. Oktobar. The club played its first official game against FK Makedonija Ğorče Petrov, a team from Skopje, in January 1947. In 1949, the team became champions of Serbia and therefore joined the Yugoslav First League for the first time. It was immediately relegated the next season. After 1978, Napredak became regulars in the Yugoslav First League and was viewed as a great club. Two years later, the team reached the UEFA Cup 1980-81. They were eliminated in the first round by German Democratic Republic's powerhouse Dynamo Dresden.

In domestic competitions, Napredak's biggest success is reaching the Yugoslav Cup final in 2000, losing to Red Star Belgrade. Their presence in the national cup final earned them a spot in the UEFA Cup 2000-01 the next season. This time, the team had a little more success, eliminating Estonian representants JK Viljandi Tulevik in the first round, but getting eliminated in the second by Greece club OFI Crete. Reaching the second round of the UEFA Cup is their biggest success in history.

Throughout its history, FK Napredak produced some great players such as Vladimir Durković, Ognjen Petrović, Zoran Simović, Dušan Pešić and Dragiša Binić.

On July 19, 2007, the Football Association of Serbia decided that Napredak will be promoted to the Serbian Superliga and replace FK Mladost Apatin who withdrew from the competition after being unable to bear the financial burden of playing in a top division.
