Upon finishing the 2014 season  

I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to our valued fans and supporters for their passionate and strong support again throughout the season this year.

The team had their third season under the leadership of Team Manager Mihailo Petrovic this year and they solidified their team tactics to be in with the chance of winning the league title until the very end. It is deeply regrettable that the team finished the season in second place although they were in the top position of the league until the last two matches.

The club was sanctioned to run a match without any spectators earlier this year and has been working on rebuilding a safer environment for our stadium. Our fans and supporters have extended their ungrudging support to the club and for such initiatives. I feel terribly sorry that we were not able to repay them for their dedicated support by falling one step short of winning the league title.

Fortunately, the team has been given the opportunity to play in the AFC Champions League in the 2015 season after two years of absence. The team has been building themselves up solidly. We will make humble efforts as a challenger to progress further in the 2015 season.

The club will continue to work towards achieving the three pillars of becoming a strong and fascinating team, being the pride of the region as well as to be an independent and responsible team. We will continue to make our stadium safer to create a comfortable and fun place to be in.

The AFC Champions League will open in two and a half months. We would like to ask for your ongoing support again in the 2015 season so that we can fight together.

Thank you again for the dedicated support during this season.
