On this day 104 years ago founded GNK Dinamo
It will be a club of all stock symbol for locals and some are so named - Civic. With such a guiding principle, exactly 104 years, April 26, 1911, established the first Croatian citizen sports club on whose foundations formed Dinamo.
Three times in its history Dinamo knocked Hungarian MTK, but I was just a people of Zagreb today Druk Administration - MTK. In March 1911, in Zagreb launched on the idea of founding the football club with a strong Hungarian prefix, names Grab Magyar friction club, abbreviated Grab MTK. There was a fierce reaction of citizens and athletes of Zagreb, who, with the then strong HAŠK and Concordia, felt the need to set up another football club, which would also represent all the social estates. HAŠK was leaning on the academic community, Concordia has represented high school youth ... So, on the wings of defiance and resistance objects "mađaronizaciji" and the idea of establishment of the Zagreb MTK, April 26, 1911 established the Civic. The premiere was a public meeting in Zagreb athletes held April 9 in New pivana in Draškovićeva street and there it was concluded that it has to start with the preparations for the establishment of a new club.
But three days later convened the Constituent Assembly foretold the Hungarian club, whose Management Board should form a state railway employees. The idea was to skip and HAŠK and Concordia and thus become the first club of the city. The paradox is that the project is meant to Grab MTK is a member of the Hungarian Football Federation. But the whole this action, due to the great resistance of Zagreb athletes, however, failed. The second public meeting on the topic of preparing for the establishment of the Civic was held April 13 in the restoration Matkovic in Frankopanska 8, in the area of today's theater Gavella. Sam is a constitutional meeting of the club, therefore, held April 26 in Budjejovačkoj restoration of the building of the First Croatian Savings Bank, on the corner of Bogovićeva Street and Flower Square.
One hundred years later Dinamo on a regular election is the annual Assembly and officially became - GNK Dinamo. Name Civic as it formally became part of the club's identity which is so symbolic and leaned against the tradition of the popular pre-war club in Zagreb.
Accord signed five titles of the Yugoslav League and one in the NDH. Dinamo on it leaned Four Cup and the league Yugoslavia, where the fifth, the court recognized the 1979, still leads in the football archives. The HRT is a 16-time champion, and this season has the opportunity to round up a series of 10 titles. Maksimirski club today is among the few in Europe which is a string of a series of eight consecutive participation in groups of European competition. The series is still ongoing, and we hope that in this segment pushed to the "tens". In the former Yugoslavia blue are seven times won the Cup, and 12 times lifted the trophy and the UEFA Champions League with five won the Super Cup.
In history, of course, especially towering Cup Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, the competition from which sprang the UEFA Cup, today's Europe League. Blue won the trophy in 1967, and four years ago has given way to the finals. Citizens, in turn, can boast victories against Liverpool came from 5-1 or 1-0 against Barcelona away
In the Civil trophies we have counted those in irregular-fought contests, such as, for example, titles and the Croatian Slavonia, Cup and Championship of the Zagreb Football sub-federations which later served as a qualifying round to join the national ranking events. Blue, for example, in 1940 won the championship Croatian-Slovenian league whose teams temporarily left the Yugoslav championship. The following season, by agreement with the Alliance, however, and played 10 rounds of the Yugoslav league where he also was a Civil champion.
