FK Vardar

FK Vardar (ФК Вардар) is a football team from Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, that currently plays in the Macedonian First League. The club plays at the Gradski Stadion Skopje (capacity 18,104).


The club was founded in 1947. Vardar's most glorious moment came in 1987, when the team lead by Darko Pancev, Ilija Najdoski, Dragan Kanatlarovski, Cedomir Janevski and Vujadin Stanojkovic won the Yugoslav First League 1986-87 title. By winning the league Vardar became the first and only Macedonian club to win the national Yugoslav Championship, temporarily breaking the dominance of the big four of Yugoslav football at that time; Red Star Belgrade, Partizan Belgrade, Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split. They won the title due to 12 teams starting the season with -6 points. The title was later rescinded and awarded to FK Partizan when the points deductions were successfully appealed to the Yugoslav Constitutional Court. Still FK Vardar got to represent SFR Yugoslavia in the 1987-88 UEFA European Champions' Cup. See Yugoslav First League 1985-86. Following the breakup of Yugoslavia and the formation of the Macedonian First League, Vardar established itself as the dominant club in the new competition, winning three consecutive league titles and two Macedonian Cups. For the next six years however the club experienced a relative dry spell, yet still winning two national cups. The club's fortunes looked up with the return of coach Gjoko Hadzievski, who led the club to another two titles.
