History

FK Drina Zvornik stadium

Football was first played in Zvornik a little bit after World War I. The first football match was played in 1924 between a team from Zvornik against visitors from Srebrenica. The first football club was formed in 1933 and named Zmaj od Noćaja. It represented the Serb community of the town. A year later, a Bosniak club named Sloga was formed so the city of Zvornik had two football clubs split between ethnic lines during the period of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, in between the First World War and Second World War. Just before the start of the Second World War the two clubs were dismembered, and a new club named Omladinac was formed.

Just after the end of the Second World War a new club, during the period of SFR Yugoslavia, FK Drina was formed. The first club president was Mr. Nikola Mastilica. The first match recorded by the press and probably the first match in competition was played on 17 May 1946, in Tuzla against FK Sloboda Tuzla. During the period of SFR Yugoslavia the club played mostly in lower national leagues.

During the 1990s, another team from Živinice also represented Drina Zvornik, but played in the Prva Liga Federacije Bosne i Hercegovine. With the break-up of Yugoslavia, in 1992, the Football Association of Republika Srpska was formed. FK Drina Zvornik was a member of the first league season in 1995–96 to be organised by the FAoRS. The league was divided into two groups and the club played in the First League – East. In this first season, the club was relegated, but after only one season the club became champions of the Second League – group Bijeljina, and was promoted into the First League of Republika Srpska in the 1997–98 season. The club suffered a relegation once more but would return to the First League once again in the 2002–03 season, this time staying in the league all the way up until 2010. In the 2009–10 season, the club was league champions, and now being the First League of Republika Srpska part of the Bosnia and Herzegovina league system, the club achieved its greatest result ever and earned a promotion to the Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina. But soon after, it was relegated again to the First League of Republika Srpska, after finishing last in the 2010–11 season.[citation needed]

In 2013–14 Drina Zvornik finished first in the First League of Republika Srpska and was then again promoted to the Premier League.[citation needed]
