Fudbalski Klub Budu?nost Podgorica (Cyrillic: , pronounced [bud?:tno:st], "Future") is a football club from Podgorica, Montenegro. It is competing in the Montenegrin First League. Its colours are blue and white.
Founded in 1925, Budu?nost was the Montenegrin club with most appearances in the Yugoslav First League, debuting in 1946. Due to the city being renamed during the communist rule in Yugoslavia, Budu?nost was known as Budu?nost Titograd throughout that era. Since Montenegrin independence in 2006, the club has won four Montenegrin First League titles and two Montenegrin Cups. They are the Montenegrin club with the most games and seasons in European competitions, winning the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 1981.
The team produced many European top-class players among whom are the UEFA Champions League winning strikers Dejan Savi?evi? and Predrag Mijatovi?. FK Budu?nost is a part of Budu?nost Podgorica sports society.


Period 1925-1941

The club was founded in June 1925, as a Workers' sports club Zora (RSK Zora). After two years, club was named as RSK Budu?nost. Historically, the first ever team of RSK Zora / RSK Budu?nost, in period between 1925 and 1928, played Musaja ?elebi?i?, Vaso Vukadinovi?, Be?o Abdomerovi?, Vaso ?arapi?, Vlado Kirsanov, ?or?e Ke?eljevi?, Vaso Kuli?, Bla?o Prelevi?, Duljo D?aferad?ovi?, Bla?o ?utulovi?, Buto Krkanovi?, Luka Bulatovi?, Tahir ?elebi?, Ilija Ivanovi?, Milo Pajovi?, Milovan Radulovi?, Vuko Vuksanovi?, Du?an Krcunovi?, ?or?ije Vu?elji?, Branko Rajkovi?, Smail Bibezi?, ?e?ir Kapad?i? and Arso Markovi?.[2] The first coach was Slovenian-born Karlo Vugrinec, who served in Podgorica as an electrician.
The first game in the history of FK Budu?nost was a friendly match against local rival GSK Bal?i?, played in 1925. Budu?nost won the game, with result 2-1.[3]
In the late 1920s, RSK Budu?nost played their first games in official competitions. Their debut in Montenegrin football championship occurred in season 1927 (under the name Zora), when they were eliminated at the First stage of competition against GSK Bal?i? (0-3).[4] Next season, Budu?nost made their first win in official competitions, defeating GSK Bal?i? (2-1), but were eliminated in Championship semifinals against Lov?en (2-3).[5]
In the next two years, Budu?nost was eliminated in the early stages of Montenegrin Championship, and in spring 1931, for the second time in history, played in the semifinals. After elimination of GSK Bal?i? (4-1) and Berane (3-0), the team from Podgorica lost the semifinals against Obili? Nik?i? (3-5).
In autumn 1931, Budu?nost for the first time played in the finals of the Montenegrin football championship, but lost against SK Crnogorac Cetinje (1-2). In previous stages of competition, Budu?nost eliminated GSK Bal?i? (6-2) and Gor?tak Kola?in (3-1).
The Podgorica side played their first international game in 1932. Budu?nost was hosted by KS Vllaznia in Shkoder and won 1-0.
In autumn 1932, Budu?nost won their first title of Montenegrin champion. In the finals, the team from Podgorica defeated FK Lov?en (6-3).[6] During that season, FK Budu?nost played their first official game against FK Sutjeska (2-1)[6] and that was the first edition of Montenegrin Derby--the greatest rivalry in the history of Montenegrin football. In spring 1933, Budu?nost defended the trophy--their opponent in the final game were, again, FK Lov?en (2-0; 2-2).[7] FK Budu?nost won their third Montenegrin championship in 1934. Their opponent in the finals, was FK Lov?en (2-0, 1-1).[8] The last time Budu?nost played in a Championship final was in 1935; in that year FK Lov?en won the title (1-2).
At the beginning of 1937, as a team which supported workers' ideas, together with FK Lov?en, FK Budu?nost was abandoned by the regime of that time. During the next years, the club, under the temporary name RSK Crna Gora, only played a few friendly, illegal games, against Lov?en and FK Vele? from Mostar.
With the beginning of World War II, all sports' activities of the club were suspended. All the players joined the Partisan movement and 19 died during the battles. Outside of Podgorica City Stadium (Western stand), there is a memorial tablet commemorating all FK Budu?nost players who died or participated in the war.

Period 1945-1975

After the war, the club was refounded under the name FK Budu?nost. Their first game was played on 1 May 1945, against FK Lov?en at Cetinje (4-2). In January 1946, Budu?nost played its first international friendly game after the war--against KF Tirana (6-1) in Podgorica. Soon after that, the team from Podgorica won the first official football competition after World War II--in the Montenegrin Republic League for the 1946 season, which meant placement in the inaugural season of the Yugoslav First League (1946-47). During the six matches, Budu?nost hadn't a single defeat and made one of the biggest official victories in the team's history--against Arsenal (8-0).
The historical first game in First Yugoslav League, FK Budu?nost played on 25 August 1946 against Dinamo Zagreb (2-2),[9] in front of 5,000 spectators in Podgorica, which was equal with town population of that time. On 16 March 1947, Budu?nost defeated NK Nafta 9-0. Until today, it remained the biggest ever home victory of Budu?nost in the First League.
Until 1955, FK Budu?nost played three seasons in Yugoslav First League, four in Yugoslav Second League and three in Montenegrin Republic League. For all that time, their head coach was Vojin Bo?ovi?, who still holds two records in the club's history--manager with most seasons (10) and with the most official games (199). In the season 1953, FK Budu?nost made the biggest victory in official games history, against Iskra away (13-1).
From 1955 to 1960, team from Podgorica was a permanent participant of Yugoslav First League. Their best performance of that era occurred in 1956-57 and 1958-59, finishing as a ninth-placed team.[10]
The most important moment in the next decade occurred in season 1964-65. Budu?nost was a member of Yugoslav Second League, but they surprisingly participated in the final game of 1964-65 Yugoslav Cup. They lost a game against Dinamo Zagreb (1-2). In their first Cup final, Budu?nost played with following team: Hajdukovi?, Foli?, Garda?evi?, Pavlovi?, Savkovi?, Kova?evi?, ?akovi?, Todorovi?, ?orban, ?eri?, Franovi? (coach: Bo?idar Dedovi?). The only goal for Budu?nost scored Franovi? in the 35th minute. In previous rounds, FK Budu?nost eliminated Sutjeska (3-2), Radni?ki Beograd (1-0), OFK Beograd (3-2) and Vardar away (2-0) in semifinals.
Of the other side, during the 1960s, FK Budu?nost spent only one season in the top tier (1962-63).
From 1969 to 1974, FK Budu?nost was among the best Yugoslav Second League sides, as they were title holders three times and twice runners-up. But, in all five seasons, they failed to gain a promotion to Yugoslav First League via playoffs. Rows of playoff losses started in 1969 against Sloboda Tuzla (0-3, 1-1), and continued in 1970 against Sloga Kraljevo (2-0, 0-2; lost on penalties), 1971 against Vardar Skopje (1-1, 0-3), 1972 against Spartak Subotica (1-0, 1-2; lost on penalties) and in 1973 against Maribor (1-0, 0-1; lost on penalties).
Finally, in season 1974-75, Budu?nost gained their first promotion to top flight after 12 years. They won the Second League title with 14 points more than second-place Sutjeska and prepared for their comeback to the Yugoslav First League.

Period 1975-1992

The period known as a golden era of football in Podgorica is 1975-1985. Budu?nost was a permanent top-tier member, finishing two seasons as six-placed team.
A big comeback of FK Budu?nost to Yugoslav First League occurred in season 1975-76. Budu?nost avoided a relegation and during the season few attendance records were made. The third week game between Budu?nost and Hajduk Split (1-2) was attended by 20,000 spectators, which is the highest number in the history of Budu?nost home games, but the Podgorica City Stadium, too. Otherwise, 1975-76 First League games in Podgorica averaged 12,765 supporters, which is another all-time record.
In season 1976-77, FK Budu?nost had another performance in the Yugoslav Cup final game. Their rival was Hajduk Split and the team from Podgorica again lost the trophy. This time, they were defeated in extra-time (0-2). In the final, Budu?nost started out with the following team: Vuja?i?, Jankovi?, Foli?, J. Miro?evi?, Vuk?evi?, Milo?evi?, Kova?evi?, Bo?kovi?, Radonji?, A. Miro?evi?, Ljumovi? (coach: Marko Valok).[11] In previous rounds, Budu?nost eliminated Pobeda Prilep (3-1), Rudar Kakanj (1-0), Sarajevo (3-2) and Radni?ki Ni? away in semifinals (1-1; Budu?nost won the penalties). Two appearances in the Yugoslav Cup finals (1965, 1977) are considered as the greatest achievements of FK Budu?nost in the era of SFR Yugoslavia.
At the same time, in spring 1977, Budu?nost debuted in the Balkans Cup, finishing second in the group with Panathinaikos (1-2, 2-2) and Vllaznia (2-0, 1-1).
Seasons 1978-79 and 1980-81 were remembered as best performances of FK Budu?nost in Yugoslav Second League. Both times, the team from Podgorica finished in sixth place. In season 1978-79, no one from the big four of Yugoslav football (Hajduk, FK Crvena Zvezda, GNK Dinamo and FK Partizan) won a game in Podgorica.
With sixth place in 1981, FK Budu?nost qualified for Intertoto Cup. They had a successful campaign in international competition, finishing among nine group winners. In Group 4, Budu?nost played against Odense (4-2, 1-1), Östers (3-1, 0-0) and Wacker Innsbruck (1-2, 3-1).[12]
After the First League season 1981-82, all-time top-striker of FK Budu?nost Moja? Radonji? signed to their biggest rival Sutjeska. Radonji? played for Budu?nost from 1972, with overall 84 scored goals, and among them 52 in the Yugoslav First League.
During the 80s, Budu?nost never relegated from the First League, but another achievement of the Podgorica side was producing great players. So, in 1983 for FK Budu?nost debuted Dejan Savi?evi?, who would later win two UEFA Champions League titles,[13] with one scored goal in the final.[14] Savi?evi? played for Budu?nost from 1983 to 1988, including the 130 games in Yugoslav First League with 36 goals scored. For most matches in his career, Savi?evi? played for Budu?nost.
Another great talent of FK Budu?nost, Predrag Mijatovi?, debuted in 1987 and would later win and score a goal in one UEFA Champions League final.[15] Mijatovi? played two seasons in Budu?nost senior team, with 73 appearances and 10 scored goals.
Other players who started their careers in FK Budu?nost during the 80s were Branko Brnovi? (100 games / 13 goals for Budu?nost in First League), ?eljko Petrovi? (59/6), Ni?a Savelji? (98/8), Dragoljub Brnovi? (183/12) and Dragoje Lekovi? (133/0); they all were members of national teams SFR Yugoslavia and FR Yugoslavia.
In the period 1985 to 1991, FK Budu?nost continued to play in Yugoslav First League. Their best finish at that time occurred in season 1986-87--the team from Podgorica was seventh-placed, equalised on table with GNK Dinamo Zagreb, and were only one point less than fourth-placed Rijeka.
The 80s were also remembered for the founding of organized Ultras group. Varvari (Barbarians) was founded in 1987. It was the strongest organised supporters group in Montenegro and among the well-known in former Yugoslav territories.
On 28 May 1989, FK Budu?nost played their first game under the floodlights in Podgorica City Stadium, against Rad (3-0).
FK Budu?nost made their third international performance in 1991. They represented Yugoslavia in the Balkans Cup. That was a very successful campaign for Budu?nost, who played in the finals. In the quarterfinals, they eliminated KF Tirana (2-0, 0-0). FK Budu?nost made a huge surprise in the semifinals, eliminating Galatasaray (0-0, 1-1). In the final, FK Budu?nost lost to FC Inter Sibiu (0-0, 0-1).[16] From 1946 to 1992, FK Budu?nost played 26 seasons in Yugoslav First League. With 261 wins and 188 draws from 789 games, they are among the top 14 teams on the all-time list of the Yugoslav football championship.

Period 1992-2006

After the breaking of SFR Yugoslavia, Montenegro stayed in federation with Serbia, in the successor state called FR Yugoslavia. So, FK Budu?nost became a member of the new top-tier competition--the FR Yugoslavia First League.
Until the end of the 90s, First League had two groups (A and B) and FK Budu?nost played the majority of seasons in the higher one.
FK Budu?nost had its first success in the new football system in 1994-95. They finished as a champion of First B League and gained participation in international competitions. In the playoffs for UEFA competitions, Budu?nost played against Vojvodina; the winner took the spot in the UEFA Cup and were defeated in the UEFA Intertoto Cup. While FK Budu?nost won the first game in Podgorica (3-1), Vojvodina won 5-2 in Novi Sad, so Budu?nost played in the 1995 UEFA Intertoto Cup. They finished fourth in Group 7, so didn't qualify for further stages. FK Budu?nost won an away game against Tervis Pärnu (3-1), but were defeated by Bayer in Leverkusen. As Podgorica City Stadium didn't meet new UEFA rules, they played home games against Nea Salamis (1-1) and OFI Crete (3-4) in Belgrade.
At the beginning of 2000, FK Budu?nost performances were weaker, so they were relegated after season 2000-01. Budu?nost lost the battle against Rad, so they were moved to lower rank after the 26 consecutive seasons spent in top-tier.
Another surprise came during the next two seasons, when FK Budu?nost failed to gain a quick promotion to First League. Finally, promotion came after the 2003-04 Second League edition, when FK Budu?nost with a young, homegrown team, dominated in competition.
They made a great top-tier comeback in season 2004-05. Among many significant results, FK Budu?nost defeated Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade (2-1) for the first time after 18 years. At the end of the season, Budu?nost finished sixth and gained a polace in the UEFA Intertoto Cup. In the first leg of 2005 UEFA Intertoto Cup, they eliminated Valleta (2-2, 5-0) and in the next stage their opponent were Spanish giants Deportivo La Coruña. The first game at Estadio Riazor finished 3-0 for the home side. But, in the second match, FK Budu?nost held a 2-0 lead in front of 10,000 supporters. At the end, Deportivo finished 2-1 and went on to the next stage.

As a Montenegrin champion, for the first time in history, Budu?nost played in UEFA Champions League qualifiers. But, their debut wasn't successful, as Budu?nost was eliminated by Tampere United (1-1; 1-2).
From 2008 to 2011, Budu?nost finished every single season in Prva CFL as runner-up, while they had another performance in the Cup finals on season 2009-10. Once again, they missed opportunity to win the trophy, and this time Budu?nost was defeated by FK Rudar (1-2).
In that period, Budu?nost played another three seasons in UEFA Europa League and most successful was their performance from season 2010-11, when they played in third qualifying leg, but defeated against Brøndby (1-2; 0-1).

Supporters and rivalries


Varvari at a Montenegrin First League home match
Varvari at a Montenegrin First League home match

Budu?nost fans are known as Varvari (Barbarians), a group founded in 1987.[21] The group's traditional colours are blue and white, which are also the colours of all the Budu?nost sports clubs. For FK Budu?nost Podgorica home games, Varvari occupy the northern stand (?ever) of the Podgorica city stadium. They also have a reserved stand at the Mora?a Sports Center, as supporters of KK Budu?nost basketball club.[22] The focal point for the group during the late 1990s was the basketball club, which started investing heavily while the football club toiled in the lower half of the table.
Since its foundation years, Varvari gained a reputation of a violent group, and in the recent history they caused some of the biggest accidents that occurred at football matches. At First League 2004-05 game Budu?nost - Partizan Belgrade, flares, blocks, construction materials and similar objects were thrown from the North stand to the pitch and the match was abandoned for 15 minutes. The following year, the home game against Red Star Belgrade was suspended for two hours after home supporters (Varvari) sprayed tear gas on the pitch and, after that, attacked visitors' ultras.[23][24] In spring 2006, there was crowd violence at the local rivals game Budu?nost - Zeta.[25] In the Montenegrin First League, numerous matches of FK Budu?nost were suspended due to crowd violence or crowd invasion of the pitch. During the latest seasons, there has been an escalation of violence at the Montenegrin Derby games.
They have the best organised and largest fan group in Montenegro. According to many fan magazines from the Balkans they are the only fans in Montenegro who are at the level of the largest ex-Yugoslavian fan groups.


FK Budu?nost participated in the biggest game in Montenegrin football--the Montenegrin Derby, a match against FK Sutjeska from Nik?i?. The first official game was played 9 October 1932.[6] As a match of main and strongest clubs from two biggest Montenegrin cities, The Derby became popular from its earliest days. Some of the highest attendance in Montenegrin football were recorded at the games of the Montenegrin Derby. Since the 80s, both clubs have organised groups of supporters, which gave to the Montenegrin Derby a new and often violent dimension.[26][27][28]

Except Montenegrin Derby, in period 1925-1935, there was a big local derby in Podgorica, between FK Budu?nost and GSK Bal?i?. As Budu?nost was officially workers' club and Bal?i? the team of that-time regime, Podgorica derby had big social dimension. Together with Cetinje teams Lov?en and Crnogorac, rivals from Podgorica were among the top four teams in Montenegrin Football Championship (1922-1940).
