NK MARIBOR

Nogometni Klub Maribor





Nogometni Klub Maribor, commonly referred to as NK Maribor or simply Maribor, is a professional football club based in Maribor, Slovenia. Founded on 12 December 1960 Maribor is the most successful club in the country, having won 13 Slovenian PrvaLiga titles, 8 Slovenian Cups and 4 Slovenian Supercups.

 

Colours

Team uniforms are completely purple, away kit is yellow. At the beginning of the club some officials were favouring the red and white colours. Because of the fact that many football teams in Yugoslavia wore red-white or black-white jerseys, Maribor officials decided for a new and fresh combination. They decided to follow the example of Fiorentina, which at the time was one of the most successful clubs in Europe, and their purple and white combination. Eventually they changed the secondary colour to yellow.
