Professional career[edit]

Mustapić played for the youth selections for his hometown club Cedevita. He started his professional career in the same club, but was loaned twice: once to Zabok and once to Kvarner 2010. After the second loan his contract with Cedevita was terminated and he spent the next three seasons playing in the Croatian League for Split, Jolly and Vrijednosnice Osijek. The 2017–18 season he spent for the first time abroad in Miasto Szkła Krosno of the Polish League.[1]

In October 2018 he returned to Vrijednosnice Osijek, but spent only a month there before returning to his youth club Cedevita.[2]

On June 21, 2019, he has signed a deal with Wilki Morskie Szczecin of the PLK.[3]

Personal life[edit]

He is the son of Ivan Mustapić, Croatian record-holding javelin thrower and the nephew of Tihomir Mustapić, a basketball player, but also a javelin thrower that holds the second best Croatian result. Tihomir went on to be an assistant coach at Zrinjski Mostar. His other uncle is Dragan Mustapić, a former discus thrower.[4]
