History[edit]

The club was founded in 1920 as Budva FK, changing to its current name in 1991.

Mogren have been ever-present in the Montenegrin First League since its inception in 2006, finishing 5th in its inaugural season.[1] In the second season of the league, (2007-08), the club finished in third place on 66 points, losing out on the title on goal difference to Buducnost.[2] The position allowed Mogren to compete in the 2008-09 UEFA Cup, where they played Israeli club Hapoel Ironi Kiryat in the first qualifying round. Despite a 1-1 away draw in the first leg, Mogren went out 4-1 on aggregate.[3] On May 7, 2008, Mogren won their first silverware by defeating Buducnost 6-5 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the Montenegrin Cup final at the Stadion Pod Goricom in Podgorica.[4]

Mogren won their first league title in 2008-09 with a four point margin over Buducnost, and qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the first time.[5] Their Champions League campaign in 2009-10 opened with a 6-0 aggregate victory over Hibernians of Malta before a 12-0 aggregate defeat to FC Copenhagen of Denmark in the second qualifying round. In the 2009-10 season, Mogren finished third in the league to qualify for the first qualifying round of the next season's UEFA Europa League, where they won 5-0 on aggregate over UE Santa Coloma of Andorra. The second leg saw Mogren take on Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv and lose the first leg 2-0 away. The subsequent 2-1 home victory for Mogren saw them eliminated 3-2 on aggregate.[6]

Mogren gained their second league title in 2010-11 on goal difference after both they and Buducnost finished level on 73 points.[7] On 28 May that year, Mogren played in their second Montenegrin Cup final, but were defeated 5-4 on penalties by Rudar after a 2-2 draw.[8] The league triumph allowed Mogren to enter the 2011-12 UEFA Champions League, which saw them eliminated immediately in the second qualifying round after losing both legs to Litex Lovech of Bulgaria.

Stadium[edit]

The club play at Stadion Mogren, which has a capacity for 4,000 people. It is scheduled to be demolished replaced with a hotel, with its roof serving as the club's new 17,000-seater stadium.[citation needed]
