Nogometni klub Zagora Unešić (English: Football Club Zagora Unešić), commonly referred to as NK Zagora Unešić or simply Zagora Unešić, is a Croatian football club based in Unešić. They currently play in the Croatian Third Football League.

The club has 400 members, in spite of being from a village of only 1500 people.[1]

History[edit]

NK Zagora was founded in 1948.[1]

One of the club's most significant moments came in its cup runs in 2007–08. Zagora won the 2007 County Cup, in which scorer Ivo Šupe was given a lamb for his efforts.[2] The county cup qualified them for the national cup, where Zagora made a run to the quarterfinal. Šupe, a postman, would score twice in Zagora's 7–2 two-legged quarterfinal loss against Dinamo Zagreb. Šupe would clarify that Zagora "did not play for lambs."[3]
