History

After the World War II, a very first football club in the town of Plav is founded. Officially, foundation year of FK Jezero was 1948.[1] Club is named after the Lake Plav, on whose shore is built the town of Plav.

First significant success, FK Jezero made on season 1968-69. They won the title of Montenegrin Fourth League - North champion and gained promotion to Montenegrin Republic League.[2] After one season, they were relegated. During the seventies, team from Plav played another three seasons in Republic League. They had similar results during the next decade, which is spent in third and fourth tier of official competitions in SFR Yugoslavia.

An era of successes started in the second half of nineties. FK Jezero became one of the strongest sides in Montenegrin Fourth League, with almost-done promotion in season 1995–96. But, in the match for a title, they lost a home game against neighbouring FK Komovi. The game was followed by numerous incidents in which dozens of FK Jezero players and supporters were wounded.[3]

The team from Plav gained another promotion to Republic League after the season 1997–98. In the higher level, they met eternal-rival side FK Gusinje, which was a permanent member of Montenegrin Republic League. Local derbies between FK Jezero and FK Gusinje played in front of thousands of spectators. The highest one was recorded on the game in Plav during the 1999, which was attended by 11,000 spectators.[4] That was the highest-ever attendance on the single game of Montenegrin Republic League.

One of remarkable results, FK Jezero made in season 2001–02. After the hard struggle with FK Kom, team from Plav finished as a runner-up of Republic League[5] and gained first-ever promotion to Yugoslav Second League.

On their debut in Second League, FK Jezero hosted FK Iskra (1-0), but game of the season was against Montenegrin notable side 2002–03 FK Budućnost (0-2), attended by 5,000 spectators in Plav. At the end, FK Jezero didn't succeed to remain a member of Second League.[6] Following Montenegrin independence, FK Jezero became a member of Montenegrin Second League, where they continued with good results. Notable season was 2007-08, finished with the title of Second League champion. With that result, team from Plav was promoted to Montenegrin First League, which remains a biggest success in the clubs' history.

FK Jezero spent only one season in Prva CFL, and most of their home games played in Berane City Stadium, because of lack of infrastructure in Stadion Pod Racinom. They played only few games at the end of season in their home town, including a new game against FK Budućnost. During the season, FK Jezero made a few surprises like win against FK Sutjeska (2-1) and two draws against Budućnost (1-1; 2-2). After the 33 weeks, FK Jezero finished on 10th position, but defeated in relegation playoffs against FK Mornar (0-0; 1-2).

Since then, FK Jezero plays in Montenegrin Second League, but without significant results.
