FK Javor Ivanjica is a Serbian club from Ivanjica. The club was founded in 1912, which makes it one of the oldest in Serbia. Javor’s home ground is Ivanjica Stadium with 5,000 seats. Their home colours are red and white.
At the beginning of XX century, Serbia did not know much about football, but Milan Radojević decided to change that and became the first to introduce his favourite kind of sport in Ivanjica in 1912. The locals quickly took an interest in the new game and founded the first club, which was named ‘Jagodina’. After several trainings, learning the rules and pitch marking, the team was ready for the first attended match. However, the club played only friendlies until 1941. After the end of WWII, the club took part in several lower division competitions. They managed to achieve the first notable success in the span from 1958 until 1962, when the club had its first match in the Yugoslav Second League.
However, the most eminent achievement in the club’s history was in the 2001/2002 season, when the club gained the promotion to the First League of the Federative Republic of Yugoslavia.
After being relegated, the club returned to the top division, which changed its name to the First League of Serbia and Montenegro. In the 2007/2008 season, the club gained promotion to the Serbian SuperLiga after an incredible record of 34 rounds undefeated in the Serbian First League.
