Since 1886, gymnastic classes in the highschool Solajter, introduced English football, with some other games. Janos Jako, Károly Juhász and especially Geza Kalman, were responsible for the popularity of the new game by 1903. It becomes the favorite entertainment for the afternoons between college students. All these were good conditions for a successful start and development of football at the first sports society created in the city in 1909 and named NAC (Nagykikindai AC). As until 1918 the city was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the club competed until then in the Hungarian league system.[1] From the very beginning, the football section was quite successful and NAC plays as equal against already reputated clubs in Hungary, and the junior football team was probably by that time the best in Serbia. In the period prior to 1914 our city was host to many famous football clubs, among which are emphasized: TAC from Timișoara, SAK from Szeged, HAŠK from Zagreb, Velika Srbija from Belgrade, ATE from Arad, etc. The matches against this well-known teams, especially the visits from Belgrade, significantly contributed to the promotion of football in Kikinda and the Banat region.

The period between the First and Second World War, with the club now competing in the Yugoslav league system, is abundant in many football events. The following important football clubs also emerge: KAC (1918–1919), Srbija (August 31, 1919 – March 20, 1932) and Sloga (1932–1941). Together with NAK, these clubs were the forerunners of today's OFK Kikinda. In addition to them, other clubs also are created: VSK Kosovo (1920–1941), SD Radnički (1926–1933), SD Rapid, which is in fact succeeded SD Radnički (1933–1941), FK Trgovačka omladina (1926–1930), TSK Slaven (20/06/1930-20/03/1932), SK ŽAK (1931–1941) and FK Banacija (1925–1933), however, the last club was not officially registered. In fact, by the 1930s, our city had even six registered clubs, more than ever in its history. Beside the mentioned, football in the local high schools was very active, and from 1926 there is one youth team worth mentioning, GLK Sloga.

All this potential made the clubs from the city achieve many successes, and most of them regularly played in the First and Second Leagues of Banat (second national tier divided by regions). Before the league pause during World War II, the most successful clubs were AK Serbia, VSK Kosovo, AK Sloga and SK ŽAK. All the best footballers were not concentrated in one club, but in several, and the ones usually considered the best are: Franja Bošnjak, Arnold Kemelj, Pavle Dajc, Franja Bucko and Bela Sendi in the period prior to 1914, Radoci, Somodji and Komolosi in the period from 1920 to 1929, Petar Lisul, Franja Jakab and Petar Sandić in the period from 1929 to 1934, and Miloš Ostojin, Petar Cvetković, Petar Živić and Božidar Sandić in the period between 1935 and 1941.[2]
