FK Čukarički Stankom (Serbian Cyrillic: ФК Чукарички) is a Serbian football club from Belgrade that plays in the Serbian SuperLiga.



The club had emerged from Čukarica, a City of Belgrade municipality on the Sava River's right bank, around a factory sugar-house, craft factory of boats. The club was formed on July 4, 1926. From a bar, Majdan, the club was given the name: ČSK "Čukarički sport klub.[1] The club colors have been black and white, it is a tradition which is still present. The first president was Miloš Ilić, the first Serbian aviator. The first players of the club were amateurs, the players organised the pitch, made their own jerseys and nets.

ČSK begin playing in the 3rd level of the Belgrade football league during mid 1920s. After finishing top of their group (Drina) they were promoted in 1928 to the 2nd level (group Sava) and will stay in this level for some time. In the season 1931-32 it acomplished to finish top of the league which was the major archivement until then. In their first season in Belgrade First League B Čukarički finished 5th.[2] In the following season 1932-33 it finished 4th. During the 1933-34 season the league was interrupted due to disagreements among the league system, however in 1934-35 with the league restored, ČSK celebrated its first decade of existance in fasion by winning the Belgrade First League B.[3]

It is in this period that the most famous Čukarički player between the two wars was Aleksandar Petrović - Pikavac plays. Coming from Palilulac in 1932 he played with ČSK until 1936 when he was transferred to one of the major national clubs, SK Jugoslavija. Member of the Yugoslav national team, he is remembered as the best dribbler of the pre-war Yugoslavia.

In 1936 Čukarički enters to the Belgrade First League A, which was one of the Yugoslav Second League´s at that time. Beside the best city clubs which were playing in the Yugoslav First League, it was here that all the other best clubs from the capital competed. In 1936-37 Čukarički finished 7th, however in the following season they finished last, 12th. The generational change in the squad is what is considered to be the reason for such a bad season.[4]

After only one year Čukarički Sport Klub was back and in the season 1938-39 it won the Belgrade First League A. However, in that season the club was merged with FK Istra, a move that was not supported by many members of the direction board, and much less among the players. Because of this, local popularity fall and the vast majority of the players moved to neighbouring clubs Banovac, Makiš and Šećeranac. This made a stagnation in the club and during the following seasons the club didn´t competed in any level until 1942.[5]

Already after the invasion of Yugoslavia, the club returned to competition in 1942 and it was placed again in the First Belgrade League. That season, 1942-43, the club finished 4th this way qualifiying for the Serbian League, top national tier during the years of the Second World War, an remarkable archivement as the club finished in front of the much favourites SK Jedinstvo Beograd or BASK. In that period there was a very popular domestic tournament named "Letnji Pehar" (Summer Trophy), where the best clubs competed in groups with the group winners qualifiying to the quarter-finals where BSK Belgrade, SK Jugoslavija (renamed SK 1903), FK Obilić and ČSK had direct access. ČSK won SK Banovac in the quarter-finals (2-1 ; 0-1) however they lost against SK 1903 in the semi´s (0-2 ; 0-2).[6]

The 1943-44 Belgrade First League season was formed by 10 clubs however after 8 rounds it was interrupted with ČSK placed as 6th. By the end of the war the club didn´t played under its name only restoring its name in 1948 as Sportsko društvo Čukarički (SD Čukarički).[7]

In 1948, playing in the Belgrade Second League, the club finished 4th. It was coached by Jovan Veselinović, and the squad was formed mostly by experienced older players. In 1950-51 with an already renovated squad, it finishes third and qualified to the Belgrade First League where it also finished third archiving promotion to the 1953-54 Belgrade Podsavezna League (national fourth tier) where they finished third, again. Led by the coach Žikica Spasojević and striker Petar Popović they archived the promotion to the 1954-55 Serbian League (third tier). Led by the coach Žikica Spasojević and striker Petar Popović. In summer 1955 Vule Radosavljević was made the main coach, however the club ended the first half of the season at bottom. Radosavljević was replaced by Dragomir Kojadinović and there were also changes at club direction board which may have contributed to a come-back with the team finishing the season in 8th place. This earned them participation in the pley-off for the Yugoslav Second League, however they failed to qualify in a group among NK Dinamo Vinkovci, FK Budućnost Valjevo and FK Jedinstvo Vršac.[8]

In 1955-56 many players left the club, and led by coach Brana Aćimović they finished 2nd in the Belgrade Podsavezna League. 1956 is the year of the beginning of the fall as many important club players retired in this period. Numerous club directions and coaches succeded. The club plays in Belgrade leagues[9]

Great achevament was brought on to the club ten years later in the 1966/67 season when they finished first in the Second Belgrade League and won the Belgrade Cup the same year. They were promoted to the Serbian League where they were constantly on top. They became the champions of the Serbian League in the 1972/73 season. The same was repeated in the Second United League-East.

In the Yugoslav Cup in 1995, FK Čukarički came into the quarterfinals and also competed in the UEFA Intertoto Cup in the 1996 season and the 1997 season. Their biggest recent success came in the 1999/2000 season when they finished 6th in the First Yugoslav League. Later on, a big company called Stankom became the club's sponsor and brought a better organization, increased the stadium capacity to 7,000 and also brought a better financial situation. The future looks good for FK Čukarički. The club competes in the Serbian SuperLiga, after being promoted from the Second Division.

The youth school of FK Čukarički Stankom is one of the most successful in Serbia.
