The meaning of «fk partizan»

Fudbalski klub Partizan (Serbian Cyrillic: Фудбалски клуб Партизан, IPA: [fûdbalskiː klûːb partǐzaːn]; English: Partizan Football Club) is a Serbian professional football club based in Belgrade. It forms a major part of the Partizan multi-sport club.[2] The club plays in the Serbian SuperLiga and has spent its entire history in the top tier of Yugoslav and Serbian football having won a total of 45 official trophies,[3] finishing in the Yugoslav league all-time table as second.[4] It is named after the Yugoslav Partisans, the resistance liberation movement during World War II.

Partizan was founded by young high officers of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) in 1945 in Belgrade, as part of the Yugoslav Sports Association Partizan.[5] Their home ground is the Partizan Stadium in Belgrade, where they have played since 1949.[6] Partizan holds records such as playing in the first European Champions Cup match on 4 September, 1955,[7] as well as becoming the first Balkan and Eastern European football club to reach the European Champions Cup final, when it did so in 1966.[8] Partizan was the first Serbian club to compete in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

The club has a long-standing rivalry with Red Star Belgrade. Matches between these two clubs are known as the Eternal Derby ("Večiti derbi") and rate as one of the greatest cross-town clashes in the world.[9] Partizan also has many supporters in many of the former-Yugoslav republics and in the Serbian diaspora.[10][11]

Their popular nickname 'The Steamroller' (Parni valjak) was originally used in the press report after the 7–1 hammering of Red Star at the 13th Eternal Derby on 6 December 1953.[12] This nickname was later embedded in the lyrics of the club anthem.[13]

Partizan Youth Academy is one of the most renowned and export-oriented in Europe. CIES (University of Neuchâtel International Centre for Sports Studies) Football Observatory report of November 2015 ranks Partizan Belgrade at the top place of training clubs out of the 31 European leagues surveyed.[14] CIES report of 2019 confirmed Partizan Belgrade as the most productive training club in Europe, with 75 of their academy graduates currently playing across 31 European top divisions.[15]

Partizan was founded on 4 October 1945 in Belgrade, as a football section of the Central House of the Yugoslav Army "Partizan",[16] and was named in honour of the Partisans,[17] the communist military formation who fought against fascism during World War II in Yugoslavia.[18] The club was formed and initially managed by the group of young high officers of the Yugoslav People's Army and veterans of the Spanish Civil War. Among them were Koča Popović, Peko Dapčević, Bogdan Vujošević, Mijalko Todorović, Otmar Kreačić, Božo Švarc and Ratko "Čoče" Vujović - elected the first president of the club.[19] Two days after its establishment, Partizan made its first step on the football scene, with the friendly match against selection of Zemun that ended 4–2. Silvester Šereš entered the record books as the first goal scorer in the history of Partizan,[20] while goalkeeper Franjo Glaser was simultaneously the first club manager.[21] Just three weeks later, Partizan went on the first of many international tours, travelling to Czechoslovakia where they beat the selection of Slovak Army with 3–1. At the time, just months after the World War II in Yugoslavia ended, no organized football competition was yet restored, so Partizan played only friendly games and tournaments both home and abroad. The club's first international engagement was a meeting against another army side, CSKA Moscow from what was then Soviet Union, on 6 December 1945 in Belgrade.[22]
