FK Velež v HŠK Zrinjski

For the absolute enthousiast we offer this unique, exclusive trip to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2019 Velez returned to the top league which means the return of the second city derby of the country. Definitely one to experience. A rivalry on high voltage. The beautiful city of Mostar will be fully controlled by the derby, dividing the city in two with the Neretva river as separation between the two sides. This trip has limited availability.


Mostar is founded in the 13th century and thrives as a trading city in the Ottoman empire. Thanks to its strategic location the city is the connection between the Balkans and the Adriatic sea. In 1566 the famous Stari Most (Old Bridge) is completed. During the civil war in 1993, the bridge is completely destroyed. Thanks to Turkey, Stari Most is rebuild en opened again in 2004 and is now UNESCO world heritage. The bridge and the Neretva river are still separating East and West, which makes it also the separation between the Croats and Bosniaks. The small, historical city center is definitely worth the visit.

More than a neighborly fight

As said, this is a rivalry on high voltage. Zrinjski was forbidden after the second World War, because of its Crotian origins. Croatia cooperated with nazi-Germany at that time. The club returned after the civil war in the nineties and they were assigned to play in the stadium of Velez. Not only because it is situated in the Croatian part of the city, but also as some sort of revenche. So Velez had to find themselves a new home ground and as they were opposing fascism, their rivalry with Zrinjski has much more to it than just a neighborly fight.
