History edit

The first football club in Radanovići, which existed only few seasons, was founded in 1970. After many years, the club was refounded in June 1995[1] and in their first season the team gained promotion to the Montenegrin Republic League for the 1996-97 season (third tier of the FR Yugoslavia football system). After only three seasons in the Republic League, in the summer of 1999, OFK Grbalj (OFC Humpback) became a member of the FR Yugoslavia Second League, which was the biggest success of the team until 2006.[2] OFK Grbalj spent four seasons in the Second Yugoslav League.
After Montenegrin independence, OFK Grbalj became a member of the Montenegrin First League. In the 2006-07 season, the team achieved third place, just behind the two of the most successful teams in national competitions, Zeta and Budućnost Podgorica. Over the next two seasons, OFK Grbalj finished as a fourth-placed team. During subsequent seasons, the team didn't achieve the same successes as in their first seasons in top-tier competition, but they were never relegated from the First League.
OFK Grbalj holds two all-time records in the Montenegrin First League. On 29 May 2010 they defeated Kom 11-0, which is the biggest margin of victory in the history of league. Five years later, on 23 May 2015, OFK Grbalj beat Mornar in Bar 7-0, which is the biggest away victory in league.
In the 2016-17 season, OFK Grbalj had the greatest success in their history by reaching the Montenegrin Cup final. They lost game against Sutjeska 1-0.
After 14 consecutive seasons in top-tier, OFK Grbalj finished as a last-placed team in 2019-20 Montenegrin First League. After the campaign full of disappointing results, team from Radanovići was relegated to Montenegrin Second League.
