Hajduk Football Club, Split: 9 reviews and 14 photos

The local soccer team has been around since 1911 and is one of the country's most successful clubs. They won Yugoslav championships many times over the years and became Croatian champions in '92, '94 and '95 and '01.

Not bad, eh? But perhaps they are even more famous for their loyal and rowdy fans, the torcida. The name was lifted from the Brazilian fans who the Hajduk supporters saw in film footage of the 1950 World Cup (if you're from Uruguay you know what happend in that one!). They loved the Brazilians' passion and decided to bring that same fervor to Croatia.

Tickets are available at the stadium (Poljud Stadium, north of the Old Town). See the Hajduk website for details.
