Glory Days

The club was one of the main powerhouses already in the former Yugoslavia, where it climbed on top 6 times, during the era of excellent generation led by Ivo Daneu. However, the brightest moment fort he green and white came in 1994, when the club from Ljubljana has beaten Taugres in the final of European Cup Winners Cup in Lausanne, led by legendary head coach Zmago Sagadin from the bench.
