Eternal Derby of Macedonia (Macedonian: Вечно дерби), also known as the Macedonia Derby (Macedonian: Македонско дерби), is the name given to matches between the two biggest and most popular Macedonianfootball clubs FK Vardar and FK Pelister.
Vardar Skopje vs. Pelister Bitola used to be the biggest and most violent match in Macedonia. An important aspect of this match-up is the intense rivalry in the Macedonian Tifo scene between the clubs supporters Komiti Skopje and ČkembariBitola. The rivalry began in the season 1989/1990 at a match in Skopje, between FK Vardar and Red Star Belgrade. A conflict occurred between the "Skopje fans" and a few Bitola fans who went to cheer for Vardar, who at that time was the most popular Macedonian football club in the former Yugoslavia. On 5 August 1990 in Bitola, Pelister and Vardar met in the Yugoslav second league and the first incident occurred. From that day forward, started the big rivalry between Komiti and Čkembari along with the Vardar-Pelister match becoming the Eternal derby of Macedonia.
