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 most popular Macedonian football clubs, the Skopje-based FK Vardar and Bitola-based FK Pelister,[1] which been supported by Komiti and Čkembari, at times infamously engaging in hooliganism at the time of the derby.[2][3]

The rivalry can be traced back to the 1989–90 season and 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.

However, the rivalry is playing at the stands but not much at the ground because Vardar there are many more honours than a rival from Bitola. In a present time there is a small number of attendance so the rivalry has lost its formerly importance.[4] As of October 2015, there have been 61 derbies played in total since the establishment of the Macedonian championship in 1992, with Vardar winning 33 and Pelister 14 games, while 12 matches ended in a draw.
