FK Kabel (Serbian Cyrillic: ФК Кабел) is a professional football club based in Novi Sad, Vojvodina, Serbia. They currently compete in the Serbian First League, the second level of the national league system.
The club was founded by the workers of the local cable factory Kabel in 1932. They competed in the lower leagues of Novi Sad over the next few years. In 1945, following the end of World War II, the club was refounded by the factory's workers and given its original name. The name was briefly changed to FK Metalac in 1947, but reverted back after just a few months.
In 1983, the club earned promotion to the Vojvodina League for the third time in just a few years. They eventually won first place in the third tier in the 1986–87 season, getting promotion to the Yugoslav Second League (Group West) for the first time in their history. However, the club suffered relegation after just one season and continued competing in the newly formed Yugoslav Third League (Group North).
After the breakup of Yugoslavia, the club placed third in the NATO bombing-shortened 1998–99 Serbian League Vojvodina and gained promotion to the Second League of FR Yugoslavia (Group North). They spent three consecutive seasons in the second tier, before being relegated in 2002. Subsequently, the club competed in the Serbian League Vojvodina for two seasons, before suffering relegation to the Vojvodina League West in 2004.
After finishing as runners-up in the 2016–17 Vojvodina League South, the club won the title in the following season and took promotion to the Serbian League Vojvodina. They subsequently placed first in the third tier and gained promotion to the Serbian First League in 2019.
