Fudbalski Klub Budućnost Podgorica (English: Budućnost Podgorica Football Club), Montenegrin Cyrillic: будућност, pronounced [budǔːt͡ɕnoːst]) is a football club from Podgorica, Montenegro, currently competing in the First League of Montenegro. Its colours are blue and white. FK Budućnost is a part of the Budućnost sport society.

Founded in 1925, Budućnost was the Montenegrin club with most appearances in the Yugoslav First League, debuting in 1946. Due to the city being renamed during communist rule in Yugoslavia, Budućnost was known as Budućnost Titograd throughout that era. Since Montenegrin independence in 2006, the club has won two Montenegrin First League titles and one Montenegrin Cup. They have also qualified for the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League, but have never reached the group stage of either tournament.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1925, and in 1946 started to play in the Yugoslav First League. The club reached two Yugoslav Cup finals, losing in 1965 to Dinamo Zagreb and in 1977 to Hajduk Split.[2] These two appearances in the Yugoslav Cup finals are considered the greatest achievements in the history of the club.

Budućnost played in the Rapan Cup (Intertoto Cup) in 1981, when they came first in their group. They would go on to play in the Intertoto Cup in 1995 and in 2005. The most notable achiviement of the club on the international stage was reaching the final of the Balkans Cup in 1991 which they lost to FC Inter Sibiu, after being eliminated by Galatasaray S.K. in the previous round. Another notable result was the 2–1 win over Deportivo La Coruña in the Intertoto Cup in 2005.

Budućnost has enjoyed greater success since Montenegrin independence in 2006, finishing second three times and winning the 2007-08 and 2011-12 Montenegrin First League. The club has also reached three Montenegrin Cup finals (2007–08, 2009–10 and 2012–13), losing the first two appearances but winning the third time against Čelik Nikšić 1-0.

Notable Budućnost players include Branko Brnović, Dejan Savićević, Predrag Mijatović, and Simon Vukčević.
