History[edit]

Foundation[edit]

The football club Jedinstvo Mali Zvornik was formed on 2 July 1967, 12 years after Mali Zvornik municipality foundation. The club had several predececors with lack of significant success, but in the end foundators united under the name of Jedinstvo (english translation Unity or United). Ethnic structure of the town in club foundation days was specific and based on different nationalities. Choosing exactly this name probably went on that basis.

Successes[edit]

The most successful period was time between 1980 and 1990, when Jedinstvo participated in 4th tier (Druga Srpska Liga) of Yugoslavian football system. During this time the Blues played many friendly games with big and respectable clubs such as FK Partizan and FK Crvena zvezda.

Recent days and club relationships[edit]

Ambitions mainly depend on financial structure made by local municipality management, which is poor in general.

Also there is a slight rivalry against local opponents FK Drina Ljubovija and FK Rađevac. Every summer a pre-season friendly tournament named Čika Aćo i Nenad is held on the Jedinstvo's pitch.
