FK Bačka 1901 (Serbian Cyrillic: ФК Бачка 1901) is a football club from Subotica in Bačka, Serbia. It is the longest running club in Serbia and the oldest within the former Yugoslavia. The club's colors are red and white, while the club's anthem is Pivaj Bačka veselo.
The club was founded in 1901, during Austro-Hungarian administration. Bačka 1901 played a big role in a cultural and sport autonomy of Bunjevci and other Slavs in Bačka during the Austro-Hungarian period.
Its first name was Bácska Szabadkai Athletikai Club, since it was registered by the Austro-Hungarian authorities in Hungarian language.
In its early years, the club played in the leagues of the Austro-Hungarian Kingdom of Hungary, regularly winning in the southern league. After the First World War, the region became part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (renamed Yugoslavia in 1929), and the club participated in the Yugoslav championship twice, in its 1923 inaugural season and in 1925. During this time the club was named JSD Bačka.
In 1941, during the Axis occupation of Yugoslavia, Bačka was attached to Horthy's Hungary and the club was forced to compete in the Hungarian League, where it entered competition in its third-tier. In 1945 the communist authorities renamed the club to HAŠK Građanski (Croat Academical Sports Club Građanski) in their attempt to Croatize Slavic populations of Bačka region. Soon after the club was renamed to FD Sloboda. Later, it was renamed to FD Zvezda, and in 1963, the club returned the name Bačka.
FK Bačka 1901 were promoted to the Serbian League Vojvodina, national third tier in 2013.
