FK Zeta: Official Thread








Formed in 1927, FK Zeta has made great strides in the past decade. Once a semi-professional side, FK Zeta earned promotion to the Yugoslav Second League in 1996 and achieved the unthinkable in 2000 by earning promotion to the Yugoslav First League.

In 2004/05, Zeta had its best season in club history by finishing third in the First League of Serbia and Montenegro behind super clubs Partizan Belgrade and Red Star Belgrade. Through this, they earned a spot in the UEFA Cup were they put up a decent fight.

The future is bright for FK Zeta as they continue the fight for Montenegrin supremacy.

With their capacity crowd being so low, and their history being so anonymous, it's quite amazing how they have risen to become one of the very best Montenegrin teams. Do you think it's a temporary thing, or is Zeta there to stay?

I honestly think they are here to stay. They have people at the top who are committed to winning and now they seem to be building a huge rivalry with Buducnost Podgorica and I doubt they would want to let themselves fall far behind them.

They need a new stadium, definitely, because 3000 is just too small. Hopefully they can have some success in the next few years so they can get some funding. A decent adventure in Europe would help A LOT.

My dad is also astonished at how far they have come. He used to play for Zeta when they weren't a pro team, so it's easy to see why he thinks that way.

Scouts come up trumps for Zeta
Wednesday, 18 April 2007
by Aleksandar Radović
from Podgorica
UEFA.com article


Ten years ago, FK Zeta – from the Podgorica suburb of Golubovci – were playing in the third division in the former Yugoslavia. However, they were a team on the up, winning promotion to the top flight in 2000 and competing in the 2004/05 UEFA Cup and the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup prior to the break-up of Serbia and Montenegro.

Double chance
Now Zeta are set to claim their first league and cup titles. With eight games to go, they are level on points with FK Budućnost at the top of the table with their rivals tiring, and they will look to claim a place in the Montenegrin Cup final as they take on FK Sutjeska in the last four. The key to all of this progress has been the club's ability to scout out talent from all across the former Yugoslavia. "We have a good scouting system in every country in the former Yugoslavia," said sporting director Ilija Vukčević. "People watch lower league games and find us interesting players."

Marić coup
Zeta's best find to date has been midfielder Miloš Marić. Spotted playing in his home town, Uzice in Serbia, he moved to Zeta in the 2001/02 season and spent three seasons with the club, earning a place in Serbia and Montenegro's Under-21 squad before joining Olympiacos CFP and becoming a Serbian international. Marić was not Zeta's only discovery - brothers Nenad and Bojan Brnović, Branimir Petrović, Nikola Trajković, Milanko Rašković, Mitar Peković and Branislav Vukomanović have all found success at bigger clubs since leaving and have helped provide the finances for the club to discover new talent.

Rich pickings
The current squad represent rich pickings for other club, and Vukčević was proud that Zeta currently boasted the captains of the Montenegrin U21, U19 and U17 national sides. He said: "Nenad Žurović with the U21s, Zarija Peličić with the U19s and Srdjan Ajković with the U17s – not only good players but good people. Zeta are small club. We give young players a chance because we can survive in professional football by selling them on but we also get good results. Our aim now is to win a double in Montenegro, but if we fail it won't be end of the world. We will continue to work in the same way."





Scouting is definitely a great asset to have. In any sport, if you have great scouting, you have a much better chance of winning.

Thank you. It seems that they will play play-off for promotion.
However, it's sad that to know that "Lovcen" games are set up.

nice. If you have the opportunities to make some pics, would you please consider posting them here :embarass: ? To see what the support is like?

Bokelj has been invested in by some Russians lately right?

Yeah, and there are 3-4 Russian players in the squad. Also, there is a project for the new stadium.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pics from Bokelj's matches. The fact is there is no need for them, supporting is quite "calm" and not organized well. Only match against Lovcen brings more "passion". However, if Bokelj manages to promote to 1'st league, there will be some nice supporting against old rival- Grbalj.
If I get some pics, I will surely post them.

That means you'll be up there, if not this year then surely in the near future. And let's be honest, Kotor deserves that. Good luck anyway

Zeta one step from Montenegrin first
Friday, 25 May 2007


The inaugural Montenegrin title will be decided on Saturday with FK Zeta looking to hold off FK Budućnost Podgorica on the last day of the season.

Final day drama
Zeta go into their final game at bottom side FK Berane boasting a two-point lead over Budućnost. The capital team also end their campaign by visiting supposedly weaker opponents in the form of FK Dečić. "We need three points and we are ready to get them," said Zeta coach Dejan Vukićević. "We are a better side than Berane but they will be doing everything to avoid relegation. This is a match between teams desperate for victory and that is why I expect a tough game."

Budućnost decline
Budućnost were three points clear at the winter break but their stuttering form since has allowed Zeta to take command. Coaches Miodrag Božović and Branislav Milačić have both resigned subsequently, with Božo Vuković now at the helm. "Our destiny is not in our hands but we must stay positive, beat Dečić and hope Berane pull off a surprise," said Budućnost captain Mirko Raičević.

Zeta claim first Montenegrin title
Saturday, 26 May 2007


FK Zeta become the first champions of Montenegro on Saturday after a comfortable 2-0 win against FK Berane in the last match of the season earned them the title and a place in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.

Korać strike
It was a particularly good day for Žarko Korać, who broke the deadlock on 25 minutes when Berane's defence reacted slowly to Slaven Stjepanović's cross and the striker pounced from close range to score his 16th goal of the season, earning him a share of first place in the goalscoring standings along with FK Rudar midfielder Damir Cakar. It was also a memorable occasion for the youngest player on the pitch, Žarija Peličić. The Montenegrin Under-19 captain profited from more good approach play by Stjepanović to settle the match in the last minute, clinch the inaugural title and confirm Berane's relegation to the second division.

Milić consolation
Overwhelming favourites at the outset of the season, FK Budućnost had to settle for second place and a UEFA Cup place after their 1-0 win against FK Dečić in Tuzi. The only goal of the game arrived on the half-hour mark, when forward Bogdan Milić converted a measured cross from Mirko Raicević. Dečić and FK Jedinstvo Bijelo Polje will now contest a relegation/promotion play-off against the second- and third-placed sides from the second division.



I am so happy...Zeta is in the CL qualifying .
