History

The club was known as workers' club. The club had a strong fanbase in the Split's shipyard. The club was found 16 April 1912 as Anarch, but has had several names Borac, Jug, HAŠK, Dalmatinac, and Arsenal.

During the Francisco Franco's forces.

In World War II, the club became well-known because 120 of its players were killed fighting on the side Josip Broz Tito's Partisans, fighting against Axis forces.[2]

After achieving four consecutive promotions, the club went from playing in Croatia's fourth tier to playing in the Prva HNL, Croatia's top division. In the team's first season in the top flight in the 2010-11 season, they achieved a very respectable third spot, just two points behind powerhouses and local rivals HNK Hajduk Split. Because of its finish that season, they qualified to play for Europe for the first time in the club's existence and entered directly into the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League second qualifying round were they met Slovenian side NK Domžale. They won 5-2 on aggregate and in the third qualifying round they were drawn against Premier League side Fulham, whom they lost to 2-0 on aggregate.
