Košarkaški klub FMP (Serbian Cyrillic: Кошаркашки клуб ФMП), commonly referred to as KK FMP or as FMP Soccerbet due to sponsorship reasons, is a men's professional basketball club based in Belgrade, Serbia. The club plays in the ABA League, the Basketball League of Serbia, and the Basketball Champions League.[1] Their home arena is the Železnik Hall.

The club was founded in Novi Sad in 1970 as KK Radnički, and was later relocated to Belgrade. The club considers itself as the successor of the 'original' FMP.[2][3][4]

History[edit]

The Radnički era (1970–2013)[edit]

1970–2009: Based in Novi Sad[edit]

The club was formed in 1970 as KK Radnički from Novi Sad. The club had played in regional leagues until 2006, when new sponsors on board, Invest Inženjering and Park Hotel.[5] The club moved to the top-tier Serbian League in 2007 and played in that competition in their last two seasons (2007–08 and 2008–09). During the 2008–09 season, guard Zlatko Bolić led the league with 22.8 points per game.

2009–2013: Based in Belgrade[edit]

In 2009, Radnički was relocated to Belgrade and changed its name to KK Radnički Basket[6] to distinguish it from well-known Radnički Belgrade. Two years later, the club changed its name to KK Radnički FMP.[1]

FMP (2013–present)[edit]

In the 2016–17 season, FMP made a debut in the ABA League and finished in 9th place in the end of the season. Power forward Jonah Bolden was awarded the ABA League Top Prospect title after averaging 12.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game in his rookie season.[7]

In December 2020, the club became a shareholder of the Adriatic Basketball Association, following a transfer of shares from Metalac Valjevo.[8] On 18 November 2021, the club changed its name to FMP Meridian for the 2021–22 season due to sponsorship reasons.[9][10] In June 2022, FMP confirmed to join the Basketball Champions League for the 2022–23 season, hosting a qualifying round in Belgrade.[11][12]
