Nogometni Klub Travnik, often known more simply as Travnik, was first established back in 1922. As the name suggests, the club is based in the city of Travnik. The team have traditionally spent much of their history in the lower divisions of both Yugoslavia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, but have risen to greater heights over the course of recent seasons. Throughout the years, the team have also developed a reputation for producing talented young players, many of whom have enjoyed successful careers away from the club.
Prior to the Bosnian war, Travnik competed in the Yugoslav league system. Although they were never able to reach the Yugoslav First League, the team did enjoy a spell in the country's second tier. However, since Bosnia and Herzegovina gained independence, the team have been able to push on further.
In 2003, the team were crowned as champions of the First League of Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a result, they gained promotion to the Premier League for the first time in history. After suffering a relegation back down to the second tier, they were once again crowned as First League champions in 2007 and returned to the top flight. To date, their best performance in the division has been a 5th place finish, which they achieved in the 2004-05 season. As a result, they should have gained entry to the UEFA Intertoto Cup, but the club failed to get a license from UEFA to play in continental tournaments and were instead forced to miss out.
Some of the club's most notable players from years gone by include names like Velimir Dolić, Emir Hadžiđulbić, Adis Nurković and Adi Adilović.
The team play their home matches at the Stadion Pirota, which is located near the city centre of Travnik. It is capable of holding up to 5,000 supporters for football matches.
