Nk Istra 1961 concluded an agreement on mutual partnership cooperation with Nk Rudar Labin. The official signing of the contract was attended by Mr. Vitomir Butorac, head of the football academy of Istra 1961, and Mr. Sandi Dobrić, president of NK Rudar Labin. This joint activity is aimed at the exchange of football experience and the development of teams of all ages that are represented in both clubs. With this cooperation, we want to work together in the sports-educational field, various camps, tournaments, logistics and further training of coaches.

I had a big wish to enter into a partnership with NK Rudar. They have a new president with new ideas and a vision of the club that I support, and I sincerely believe that we will cooperate for many years to our mutual satisfaction – Mr. Butorac.

We are honored by this cooperation and I am sure that both clubs will benefit greatly in terms of football, as well as togetherness and mutual understanding. For me personally, this is a nostalgic return to the club where I spent a large part of my playing career, Mr. Dobrić agreed.
