HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1945 by members of HAŠK, Građanska and Concordija football clubs, playing entirely in the lower leagues and undergoing a series of name changes.[2]

In 1992, NK Dubrava hosted the Albanian national team in what was only the second appearance of a national team in Croatia. The game finished 0–0.[3]

After winning the 1992 second division title, NK Dubrava appeared in the 1993–94 Prva HNL, the top flight of Croatian football, but were relegated after finishing 17th of 18 teams. They did manage to defeat Dinamo Zagreb 1–0[3] The club was led by future Croatian national team coach Ante Čačić until 1993.[3]

In 2013, Dubrava reorganised their board of directors. They are known for their youth programs and host a youth tournament every year.[2]
