History

Beginnings (1947–1991)

The history of Slovenian association football in the Goriška region goes back to the year 1907, when the first football club "Jugoslavija" was formed by the Slovenes of Gorizia.

October 1947 marks the beginning of the club with the foundation of "Gorica Physical Culture Club" in Šempeter pri Gorici, where it operated until 1963, when the club's activity was transferred to Nova Gorica, which has remained its seat ever since.

Slovenian independence (1991–)

After the independence of Slovenia in 1991, the club played in the 1. SNL under the name HIT Gorica and during the 1995–96 season, Gorica won the Slovenian league title for the first time. In the next season, the club played its first Slovenian Supercup final and won their second trophy with a 3–1 victory over Olimpija. During the league domination of Maribor, the club managed to win two Slovenian cup titles in a row (2000–01 and 2001–02).

On the last day of the 2003–04 season on 30 May 2004, Gorica won its second title after one of the most dramatic rounds in Slovenian league history. Before the last round, NK Maribor was leading the table with 54 points, one point ahead of Gorica. In the final round, Maribor played an away match against their rivals Mura and Gorica played at home against Koper. Both matches were played at the same time, and after the first half things did not look good for Gorica. Maribor was leading 0–1, while Gorica finished the first half with the score 0–0. At the start of the second half, Gorica took the lead. On the other match, the score remained 0–1 up until the 68th minute, when Mura equalised to 1–1. Later, Maribor started to attack in search of their winning goal, but was cut down with yet another goal from Mura in the 89th minute for the final score 2–1. That result meant that Gorica, who eventually won against Koper 2–0, had secured their second title.

The second title started an impressive run for Gorica as the team won another two league titles in a row (2004–05, 2005–06). By now Gorica, a four times Slovenian league champions, was recognized as one of the top football clubs in the country. After the last title, Gorica was a runner-up in the 2006–07 and 2008–09 seasons, while finishing 3rd in 2007–08 and 2009–10.

Since 1991, when the league started, Gorica won the title four times, was a runner-up on another four occasions and finished at the third place five times, which makes Gorica the second most successful football team in the country.

In 2013, Gorica became associated with Parma.[3] On 21 May 2014 they won their first trophy after eight years as they defeated Maribor 2–0 in the cup final.[4]
