FK Budućnost Banatski Dvor
|Full name||Fudbalski klub Budućnost Banatski Dvor|
|Ground||Stadion Mirko Vučurević|
|League||Opštinska Liga Žitište-Nova Crnja|
The club was founded in 1938. They played mostly in regional leagues during the period before the break-up of Yugoslavia. In 2003 they were promoted to the top national league for the first time. They will finish the 2003–04 First League of Serbia and Montenegro in 13th place out of 16 teams, thus being relegated, but after only a year, they will return to the top tier. In the 2005–06 Serbia and Montenegro SuperLiga they will have a much better performance by finishing in 8th place, however, in late January during the winter break of the season, Budućnost was merged with FK Proleter Zrenjanin and form a new club named FK Banat Zrenjanin.
The major highlight of the club happened when they reached the final of the 2004 Serbia and Montenegro Cup which they lost to Red Star Belgrade by 0–1. This lead them to qualify for the 2004–05 UEFA Cup second qualifying round where they met Slovenian side NK Maribor which beat them in away goals with a 2–2 aggregate.
