Football Club Osijek is one of the most important football clubs in Croatia due to its overall contribution to Croatian football, most notably in the form of some very successful players that have been raised in the club. FC Osijek was founded in 1947 and entered the First League in 1953. In April 1967 it became an independent football club and started carrying its current name, FC Osijek. During the first few years, the club’s colors were red and blue, which in 1970 changed to white and blue - the colors of the City of Osijek. In 1992, a new Croatian Football League started, in which FC Osijek achieved a range of good results and was a regular participant in the European leagues championships. The season of 2000 is still remembered as one of the best. In that season FC Osijek was the autumn Croatian champion, but ended the season in the third place, because of some less than good games in the second (spring) part of the championship.
Since then FC Osijek has not recorded any significant success. This is because, in addition to the regular transfers of important players, there has also been a bad financial situation that has led the Club to a situation where survival and staying in the 1st Croatian Football League was the biggest possible accomplishment.
After many years of survival, in February 2016 the club was sold into a private ownership to a Hungarian entrepreneur Lorinc Meszaros and his partner, an entrepreneur from Osijek, Ivan Meštrović.
Immediately after the arrival of the new owner, a marketing team was formed. The goal of the marketing team was to create a new image of the Club, as well as of the City of Osijek. FC Osijek has thus hired Studio 33 to work on the redesign of the visual identity and graphic standards for the FC Osijek, which are more than necessary for the functionality of the club and the new marketing campaign, aimed at bringing the fans back to the stands, and bringing life back to the City of Osijek.
