Hrvatski Dragovoljac History
The club was once known as NK Trnsko 75 when it was established in 1975. In 1976, it became known as ONK Novi Zagreb, and in 1990, it became known as NK Novi Zagreb. After the outbreak of the Croatian War of Independence in 1991, a significant number of the club’s members volunteered for military service. When they started playing again in 1994, the club was renamed Hrvatski Dragovoljac, which translates to “Croatian Volunteer,” in memory of those who died fighting in the war and those who fought for their country. In addition to this, they went with a new team logo that included black as the primary color.
The team was able to win promotion to the then-current Croatian First B-League in 1995, and after placing first in that competition, they qualified for the championship play-off of the Prva HNL in 1996, where they ultimately ended sixth.
The team repeated their achievement of finishing in the top three of the Prva HNL and earning a spot in the UEFA Intertoto Cup the next two seasons, despite finishing in fourth and fifth place respectively. This accomplishment was accomplished in 1997.
