NK Hrvatski dragovoljac is a Croatian football club based in the Novi Zagreb neighbourhood of the country's capital city of Zagreb. The team's fans are known as the "Black Warriors" (Croatian: Crni ratnici). The club's home ground is Stadion NŠC Stjepan Spajić, which has a capacity of 5,000.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1975 as NK Trnsko 75, with its name being changed to ONK Novi Zagreb in 1976 and NK Novi Zagreb in 1990.

When the Croatian War of Independence began in 1991, many of the club's members volunteered to fight. In honour of those who fought and those who lost their lives in the war, the club was renamed Hrvatski dragovoljac (Croatian Volunteer) when they resumed play in 1994. They also adopted a new logo incorporating black as the team's colour.

In 1995, the club won promotion to the former Croatian First B-League, where they finished first and qualified for the championship play-off of the Prva HNL in 1996, finishing fifth in the end. In 1997, the club reached the third place in the Prva HNL and qualified for the UEFA Intertoto Cup, a success they repeated in the following two seasons with fourth and fifth-place finishes.
