Famous Croatian football club Hajduk Split turns 105 on 13 February…

In honour of the big occasion the group Torcida Stari Plac (Nesvrstani), together with the firm Jadro, have purchased and planted 105 olive trees at the club’s Poljud stadium headquarters in Split.

“HNK Hajduk wishes to thank to the initiator of the idea and to our business partner ‘Jadro’,” the club said on its website.

Moving forward the club will plant one new olive tree every year to keep up with the age of the famous club which has a cult following in Dalmatia.
