Nogometni klub Zagreb, commonly known as NK Zagreb or simply Zagreb, is a Croatian football club based in the Croatian capital city of Zagreb, currently playing in the Druga HNL. The club was founded in 1908. NK Zagreb's home ground since 1946 is Stadion u Kranjčevićevoj with reduced capacity of 8,850 where they only play their official competitive matches. The team's traditional home colours are white shirts, shorts and socks which is the reason why they are referred to as Bijeli in Croatian, meaning "The Whites". Another, much more popular nickname of the club is "The Poets", Pjesnici in Croatian, due to the location of their home ground at Kranjčevićeva street which is named after great Croatian poet Silvije Strahimir Kranjčević.
So far, NK Zagreb has won the Croatian Football Championship only once, in season 2001–02 which was for the first time since its establishment in 1992 that the Croatian champion was not Dinamo Zagreb or Hajduk Split. Also, NK Zagreb participated several times in the European competitions like UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, UEFA Intertoto Cup and Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
