The name Armada was given in 1987 at a bar in the “Ri” shopping mall in Rijeka, and the first game attended by the Armada was the Final of the Yugoslav football cup against Hajduk Split in Belgrade on the 9th of May 1987.

The group named themselves after the Spanish Armada because of the strength they showed in their support.

Their mottos are; Sami protiv svih – Alone against everybody, and Krepat, ma ne molat – Die but not give up.
