OFK Backa

OFK Backa (Serbian Cyrillic: ОФК Бачка) is a football club based in Backa Palanka, Serbia. In 2016, the club achieved promotion to the Serbian SuperLiga. It is known as one of the most successful football clubs in Serbia at the all time table of the Yugoslav Second League.

Stadium

The Backa stadium, known as Stadion Slavko Maletin Vava, was inaugurated on the date the city of Backa Palanka celebrates its slava, July 7, 1951. It has a capacity of 5,500. The west stand is completely covered while the east stand is not. The stadium is located in downtown of Backa Palanka.

The first field where FK Backa played was where the old railway station was located. As the club was growing and gaining popularity, a decision was made to relocate the stadium from the outskirts to the city center where it still stands. Its location is in an exclusive part of the town, 20 meters from the city center and the pedestrian area.

The stadium is known for its high attendance. The biggest one recorded was on March 12, 1969, in a Yugoslav Cup quarter-finals game against Hajduk Split, when 10.000 spectators were present inside.
