Radni?ki Nogometni Klub Split commonly known as RNK Split, is a Croatian football club based in the city of Split.

History

The club had a strong fanbase in the Split's shipyard. The club was founded on 16 April 1912 as Anarch, but has had several names like Borac, Jug, HA?K, Dalmatinac, and Arsenal since then.

During the Spanish Civil War, RNK Split organized an unsuccessful expedition of his volunteers for the fight on the side of the anti-fascist coalition against Francisco Franco's forces.

In World War II, the club became well-known because 120 of its players were killed fighting on the side of Josip Broz Tito's Partisans, fighting against Axis forces.[2]

After achieving three consecutive promotions from 2008 to 2010, the club went from playing in Croatia's fourth tier to playing in the Croatian First League, Croatia's top division.

In the team's first season in the top flight in the 2010-11 season, they achieved a very respectable third spot. Because of its finish that season, they qualified to play for Europe for the first time in the club's existence and entered into the 2011-12 UEFA Europa League second qualifying round where they met Slovenian side Dom?ale. They won 5-2 on aggregate and in the third qualifying round they were drawn against Premier League side Fulham, whom they lost to 2-0 on aggregate.

In the 2014-15 season, the club managed to reach the Europa League playoff round after defeating Mika, Hapoel Be'er Sheva and Chornomorets Odesa, but lost 1-0 on aggregate to Italian Serie A side Torino.

Logo and colours

Founded as HR?D "Anarch", the club's first colors were black (the color of Anarchists). HR?D stood for Hrvatsko radni?ko ?portsko dru?tvo (Croatian Workingmen's Sports Society). In 1933, as influence of "red" (organized labour, Social democrat and Communist) youth grew stronger, the club changed its colors to all red and its name to Radni?ki nogometni klub Split (Workingmen's Football Club Split).

During SFR Yugoslavia RNK Split played in the top football division four times, but did not win a Championship or Cup title. The biggest success in the Yugoslav Cup was in the season of 1960-61, when they lost in the semi-finals against the Macedonian team Vardar in the game on Vardar's home stadium.
