HistoryEdit

The first ball in Gabela was brought by Andrija Korda and Vidan Krvavac in 1919, from Mostar.[3]

1941–45 the club was dissolved because of World War II. In 1948 the club was formed again. The club was named GOŠK after the recommendations of Milorad Mandrapa in 1958. Under the name GOŠK, the club achieved more and more better and important competitive results. Gabela ranked among the most popular sports village in the former Yugoslavia. In the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, GOŠK mostly played in the Fourth Unfederal League (Mostar zone) in the seasons (1948–60, 1962–63, 1964–66, 1968–92) and three times in the Third League (1961–62, 1963–64, 1966–67).[4]

In the 1990s, the club played in the First League of Herzeg-Bosnia, between 2001 and 2003 in the Second League of FBiH, between 2003 and 2011 in the First League of FBiH, 2011–13 Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2013–17 First League of FBiH, 2017–19 Bosnian Premier League and currently, since 2019, the First League of FBiH.
