History[edit]

First football club in Ulcinj is founded at 1921[1] under the name Ulcinj. In the period 1921-1941, the team played only non-official games.

After 1945, in SFR Yugoslavia era, club played under the name Bjelogorac. Since 1970's, they played in Fourth League - South (lowest rank). At the season 1977-78, under the old name - Ulcinj, the club made biggest success until that period, winning the second place in the Fourth League. That meant promotion to Montenegrin Republic League.[2]

From 1978 to 2006, FK Otrant played numerous seasons in the Republic League, with often relegation to lower rank. At the start of 90's, club was defunct. Few years after that, the team was refounded under the name FK Otrant.
