Nogometni Klub Malečnik (English: Malečnik Football Club), commonly referred to as NK Malečnik or simply Malečnik, is a Slovenian football club, which plays in the town of Malečnik, near Maribor. The club was established in 1960.[1]


They play their home games at the Berl Sports Centre.[2] In November 2012, the Drava flooding completely destroyed their football pitch and all the equipment.[3] In a charity event, organised by the 7 dni newspaper, all money from an auction was donated to NK Malečnik.[4] Many notable Slovenian and foreign footballers, including Luka Krajnc, Rene Krhin and Lionel Messi, donated their football shirts for an auction.[5]
