Club careerEdit

Štilić began his playing career with Željezničar in 2005. After three seasons with Željezničar, he moved abroad for the first time in his career, signing a 4-year contract with Polish club Lech Poznań in June 2008.[4]

On 23 July 2012, he joined Karpaty Lviv,[5] He stayed in Ukraine for only one season, as he left for Turkish club Gaziantepspor in August 2013.[6][7]

On 23 January 2014, he went back to Poland and signed one-and-a-half-year deal with Wisła Kraków.[8]

On 13 June 2015, he signed a three-year contract with Cypriot club APOEL.[9] He made his APOEL debut on 21 July 2015, in his team's 1–1 away draw against FK Vardar for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.[10] He scored his first goal for APOEL on 22 August 2015, in his team's 5–1 away victory over Ermis Aradippou for the 2015–16 Cypriot First Division.[11] On 26 August 2015, Štilić scored from a long-range free kick against Astana at GSP Stadium, in APOEL's 1–1 draw for the play-off round of the UEFA Champions League.[12] On 19 September 2016, his contract with APOEL was mutually terminated.[13]

On 4 September 2017 he moved from Wisła Kraków to Ekstraklasa club Wisła Płock.[14] In May 2019, almost two years after signing for Wisła Płock, Štilić decided to leave the club.[15]

On 2 August 2019, eleven years after leaving the club, he returned to and signed a three-year contract with Željezničar.[16] His first match for Željezničar after eleven years was a thrilling 5–2 home league match, Sarajevo derby win against Sarajevo on 31 August 2019.[17] Štilić scored his first goal since his return to Željezničar on 25 September 2019, in a 6–0 home league win against Zvijezda 09.[18] He was named man of the match in Željezničar's 1–3 away league win against Sarajevo in the city derby on 30 November 2019, scoring two goals and earning an assist.[19]
