History[edit]

Period 1958-2000[edit]

FK Kom is founded at 1958 in Podgorica suburb Zlatica, named after Kom Kučki, the top of Komovi mountain.

During their first seasons, Kom played at the lowest-tier rank in SFR Yugoslavia - Fourth League - Central region. First success came at season 1969-70, when the team won the title of fourth league champion and gained first promotion to Montenegrin Republic League.[1] After two seasons in Republic league (third-tier competition), Kom was relegated to lower rank. After 17 consecutive seasons in Fourth League, FK Kom became a member of Republic league again at season 1989-90. Only two years later, FK Kom won the title of Montenegrin Republic League champion (1991–92), but didn't succeed to gain a promotion to Yugoslav Second League, after the playoffs defeat against Jedinstvo Bijelo Polje.[2]

At that time, FK Kom played few successful seasons in Montenegrin Republic Cup, which gained them participation in national Yugoslav Cup competition. Best result FK Kom made in Yugoslav Cup 1992-93, with eliminating Borac Čačak (2-1) in First round, but defeated against Zemun (0-1; 0-5) in Round of 16. On Yugoslav Cup 1996-97, FK Kom hosted famous Belgrade-side and former European champion Crvena Zvezda (0-4), in front of 3,000 spectators at Stadion Zlatica.

Period 2000-[edit]

Era of significant successes in team's history started with beginning of the 21st century. In season 2001-02, FK Kom won the title in Montenegrin Republic League with 106 goals scored in 34 games.[3] During the season, Kom defeated Županica 17-1, which was a record-high win, not only in the team history, but in the history of Montenegrin Republic League too. With that success, Kom gained first-ever promotion to Yugoslav Second League.

In season 2002-03, as a member of Second League, FK Kom became the greatest surprise of Serb-Montenegrin football. On their debut in second-tier competition, Kom won the champion title, in the same league with the most-known Montenegrin team Budućnost and strongest rivals like Lovćen, Bokelj or Mladost. Most surprisingly were invincible games against league main favorite - FK Budućnost (1-0; 0-0; 0-0).[4] So, with 76 points earned, FK Kom unexpectedly gained historical promotion to First League of Serbia and Montenegro 2003-04.

Once suburban bottom-league member on season 2003-04 became the sixth club from Montenegro which played in Yugoslav First League since 1946. On their historical debut in top-tier, at 9 August 2003, FK Kom was defeated against Obilić in Belgrade (1-3).[5] Next week, FK Kom played first home game - a big local derby against Zeta (1-2). Because their Stadion Zlatica didn't met the criteria, game was played at Podgorica City Stadium in front of 6,000 spectators, which is the biggest home attendance in team's history. At 13 September, Kom hosted former European champion and national title winner Crvena Zvezda (0:2).[6] Biggest sensation during the season, Kom made at 6 March 2004, with the draw against favorited side Partizan (0:0). But, with the score of only 4 wins and 2 draws at 30 games, Kom was relegated to Second League at the end of season.

Kom made a come-back to the top-tier after the independence of Montenegro. At 2006–07 Montenegrin First League, the team made few significant results including games against Budućnost (1-1) and Zeta (0-0) and finished in the middle of the table. During that season, member of FK Kom first-team was former RCD Espanyol star Branko Brnović.

Next year, opened with four invincible games and wins against Budućnost (1-0) and Zeta (2-1), FK Kom finished at position nine. The team made similar result on season 2008-09.

On season 2009-10, FK Kom finished as a last-placed team, with poor performance od 5 wins and 3 draws in 33 games. Except that, on 29 May 2010, they were defeated against OFK Grbalj with result 0-11, which is biggest defeat in the history of Montenegrin First League. So, after four consecutive seasons in top-tier, FK Kom was relegated to Montenegrin Second League.

Next period, FK Kom spent mostly in Second League, with one season (2012–13) in Montenegrin Third League.
