FK Željezničar v FK Sarajevo

The Sarajevo Derby is one of Europe’s most intense and fierce derbies. The two biggest clubs in Bosnia and Herzegovina have been fighting it out with each other for decades for the honour of being the top dog in the Bosnian capital. This game has a special rivalry which is further intensified by a turbulent history. Get ready to experience a truly passionate, deafeningly loud and fiery battle on and off the pitch which will very possibly be quite unlike anything else you have ever experienced before in world football. Our Away Days trip to Sarajevo brings you up close and personal with the fans both inside and outside of the stadium as we get to spend time with the local fans before and after the game as well as right amongst it at the Stadion Grbavica. This will be a derby day experience like no other.

Sarajevo – unique and unlike anywhere in Europe

Sarajevo is one of the most colourful capitals in Europe and is quite unlike anywhere else on the continent. This city has historically been at the crossroads of Europe and the East, and its people, architecture, customs and culture have been influenced over the centuries by the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, its time as an integral part of Yugoslavia and the terrible events and trauma suffered by the city during the Bosnian War siege of the early 90’s.

Visiting this city you feel like you have one foot in the East and one foot in the West and yet this proud city feels quite unlike any other capital you will have visited in your lifetime. Even the food feels completely different from that which we experience in other parts of Europe! Sarajevo is a destination which will surprise you in a very positive way.

Remarkable rivalry

A rivalry already existed between these two clubs before they even played each other for the first time. Indeed, it took eight years before the first official derby was played in 1954. These archrivals are often evenly matched and after 150 derbies neither club can claim to dominate these incredibly passionate encounters with ‘the people’s club’ FK Željezničar leading ‘the club of the elite’ FK Sarajevo 46-45 on victories. All of you travelling with us to Sarajevo will experience this derby up close and be part of the passion. Expect singing, chanting, colours, choreography, fire and flags like something you have never seen before, causing the hairs to stand up on your neck, strained vocal cords and goosebumps aplenty.
