The club was founded by a group of students from Split in a pub in Prague and officially registered with the authorities on February 13, 1911. While trying to come up with a name for the club, the students went to an old teacher Josip Barač for advice, and according to accounts he told them to take the name “Hajduk” which symbolized “that which is best in our people: bravery, humanity, friendship, love of freedom, defiance to powers, and protection of the weak.
So if you are not sure what the club means to the city and its people, then the club’s latest promo video, released today, does well to capture the passion and importance of the club. (photo / Hajduk.hr)
