Nogometni Klub Primorje (English: Primorje Football Club), commonly referred to as NK Primorje or simply Primorje, was a Slovenian football club, which played in the town of Ajdovščina. Since the independence of Slovenia in 1991 Primorje was one of the top Slovenian clubs, having spent a total of 18 seasons in the Slovenian PrvaLiga until the club folded, following the 2010–11 season when they were, due to a high financial debt, unable to obtain competition licences issued by the Football Association of Slovenia.[1]

A successor club, which claims rights to Primorje's honours and records, was established in 2011 under the name DNŠ Primorje.[2] However, they are not legally considered to be successors to the original Primorje and the two clubs' track records and honours are kept separate by the Football Association of Slovenia.[2]


The team played their home matches at the Ajdovščina Football Stadium, a 1,705 capacity stadium in Ajdovščina. The stadium was renovated during the 2009–10 season,[3] and was reopened in September 2010.


The traditional colours of the club were red and black.


Primorje supporters were called the Red Devils Ajdovščina. They were mainly active during the 1990s.
