Red Star and Partizan have dominated Serbian football since the break-up of Yugoslavia. And when these two meet, you can guarantee a battle of epic proportions.

Walking Belgrade’s streets on derby day will give you the shivers. And this only intensifies when you reach the stadium. Where the flags, smoke, and fireworks combine to create a unique football setting. 

It’s a warzone. It’s hell on earth. This derby is simply amazing.  

As you can imagine, this derby is best seen with a local. And we have the very best network of Belgrade football guides waiting to guide you on this weekend and help you experience Belgrade like a local. Plus you will share the experience with a small-group of like-minded sports fans to create a more enjoyable, memorable and connected experience.

You’ll spend 4 days in Belgrade with accommodation included in the Mint Hotel or similar.  This allows plenty of time to explore Belgrade’s rocky history and get the inside track on the incredible sports culture here. Your itinerary includes behind-the-scenes tours at both the Red Star and Partizan stadiums, a Serbian dinner, the Derby itself, and plenty of time to discover the city of Belgrade.

  • Experience the famous Eternal Derby
  • Learn about the rivalry and visit stadiums
  • Explore the Serbian capital with best local tips and guidance
  • Try authentic Serbian food and beers


Day 1 - Arrivals and Pub Night
Day 1 - Arrivals and Pub Night

Welcome to Belgrade, a city rich in history, warm-hearted people, delicious food, hectic football culture, and of course - the allmighty rakija. Day one is arrivals day at the Hotel Mint (or a similar one). Meet & greet with the local hosts and the rest of the group, check in and refresh.

In no time our first group activity starts - the Pub Night. Get ready for a welcome beer from Homefans, and probably some more local beers to follow.

Day 2 - Stadium Tours and Serbian Dinner
Day 2 - Stadium Tours and Serbian Dinner

Who's up for some stadium tours at vintage grounds for breakfast? First we head to the legendary Rajko Mitić stadium (still called Marakana informally) where we get a fantastic firsthand experience on a private tour which includes an official guide, trophy hall, pitch tour, and some surprises along the way. After coming by both the official club shop and the ultras shop, we continue our journey to get to know the Partizan stadium, an old school temple of football.

Learn about the club's history in the trophy hall, take awesome photos on the pitch, touch the grass, feel like a Partizan player for a moment. A fully immersive football experience like no other. After visiting the club shop, you'll have some spare time for sightseeing and free activities. Make sure you have some rest and your stomach empty, because in the evening we meet in one of the oldest streets in Belgrade, the renowned Skadarlija, for an authentic Serbian Dinner (optional as an extra). This gastronomic experience includes finger-licking food, inevitable Serbian rakija drink, and also local music bands to heat up the atmosphere even more. Feel the spirit of Belgrade and it's people!

Day 3 - Match Day
Day 3 - Match Day

Wake up and try to picture the madness that's coming up. This is not your regular match day. So spend your free time in the morning wisely. In the early afternoon, the group meets in a cozy pub for the warm up. Beers, expectations, tension in the air.

The locals will share the latest news about the game, and also their own views and feelings about it. We will head early to the stadium to join the pre-game vibe and maybe catch a corteo.

In the stadium, take a seat from where all the action will be perfectly visible and at the same time close enough to keep your goose bumps for a while even after the last whistle. After the derby, we'll go back to the hotel or city centre for those that want to have a drink afterwards! In a mood for more action (after the Eternal Derby, we doubt it)? No problem, you'll get the best tips, Belgrade has a lot to offer on any given night.

Day 4 - Time to say Goodbye
Day 4 - Time to say Goodbye

Back to normalcy. You will wake up still feeling the blast from the day before. And that's fine, trust us. Time to bid a farewell to your local host and fellow travellers and exchange contacts. Hopefully some new friendships for life. Time to say goodbye...until the next football adventure with Homefans.

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting, we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking. However, our destination managers and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

Homefans is for everyone!

If we can accept children, there will be an option to do so in the booking flow. However, for some trips, our local hosts take the decision to open this up to adults only, based on the content of the tour. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I extend my stay / upgrade my hotel?

Yes, you can extend your stay by clicking on the EXTRAS section at checkout, choosing the number of extra nights you wish to extend your stay.

For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!

Magnificent experience

It wasn't just an ordinary football experience. We also had the opportunity to experience the local culture and soak up the amazing atmosphere during the whole match day, which was enchanting. The stadium tours were very interesting and we were given some interesting details. At the end, we had a fantastic dinner together at the best place we have ever visited. I would like to thank our wonderful hosts for their pro-active approach and much advice. This derby was an experience of a lifetime we will definitely want to come back - it's worth it 10/10

Brilliant weekend

An amazing derby experience - the atmosphere in the ground was unbelievable and the spectacle on the terraces from both sets of fans was incredible. Our hosts, Andrija, Egor and Jovan, are all great guys who told us a lot about the football culture of the city and were always there to help whenever needed. Belgrade is beautiful city and I was glad I had time to see a few of the sights while I was there. Hopefully I'll be back again soon to see the derby again but this time at Partizan's ground.

Best Match on EARTH

Best football experience of my life!! If anyone is on the fence about booking this experience, simply DO IT. Press the button and get to Belgrade! Andrija, the host, is the perfect man for this experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of both clubs in the city as well as Serbian football in general. He knows it all, whether it's niche details like the graffiti in and around the stadium or the history of either club. Additionally, he goes ABOVE and BEYOND to make sure each guest has the perfect experience. From giving instructions on booking taxis to recommending the best museums or Chinese takeaways in Belgrade, it's clear that Andrija truly cares about his guests. He also takes you on tours of both stadiums, allowing you to see every corner of both grounds, which is amazing. He is a genuinely kind and caring man, someone I'm happy to now call a friend. Finally, the atmosphere at the actual match is something I won't forget for the rest of my life. From the singing to the pyro displays, it was beyond incredible. I recommend this trip to each and every football fan, and I'm so glad to have the memories I made in Belgrade for the rest of my life.

Incredible experience

It was truly the most incredible experience in terms of football I have ever witnessed, if you only go to one game you must go to this, the atmosphere is on another level. Our hosts were also incredible, Andrija, Egor and Jovan could not do enough to assist and educate us in the culture and politics of the rivalry between the clubs and were always available if we needed anything. overall 10/10 and will definitely go back again



Fantastic Football Match and Fantastic Experience

This was simply the best footballing experience of my life. The pyro, the flares, the noise, the athmosphere, the chants, the whole aura of the stadium was so intense. This is a must-do for any football fan. Additionally, our host Andrija was great: he took great care to make sure we had the best possible experience, with his knowledge of the clubs and the city, and his friendliness and willingness to help. I absolutely recommend it.

Rob Morgan


Book it. You won't regret it

I'll start by saying that the whole trip was great. Though I went primarily for the match, actually there was so much more. Andrija organised loads of other stuff for us to do, including a couple of other matches (super cheap to get into) and great meal out with the whole gang. It was really interesting to get an insight into the way football works in Serbia, and I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Owen Gaughan


Fantastic time in Belgrade

An enjoyable trip with a great host. Andrija is a really good guy who knows his stuiff. Organised everything perfectly. There was a couple of extra football games in addition to the derby (which i'd recommend to anyone looking for an old school atmosphere). Belgrade itself is an interesting city with good food and cheap beer, well worth a visit. It was my second trip with Homefans and it won't be the last. They even covered the cost of the extra night hotel when the Serbian FA moved the game at short notice. Great value for money for all you get.

I've been to a lot of stadiums in Europe, seen a lot of big teams, experienced a great atmosphere. But this derby is great cinema. This is unique! An incredible atmosphere, very fanatical fans. I would like to book again through homefans. The hotel was very good, located near the stadium. And Andrija took really good care of us, showed us a lot.

Adam Carlquist


Fantastic Experience

Andrija guided us in Belgrade's football scene. We had some very interesting day's. The extra trips to RADs match and the visits to local clubs Zemun, Radinicki and OFK was outstanding. Adrija really cared for the group. Big thanks!!!

Matt Barnes



Wow, what can I say? We all do this for the football, and this derby needs no introduction, but a trip is so much more than 90 minutes. Andrija greeted us more like old friends. He went above and beyond, helped us organise a trip to Novi Sad, listened to what we wanted, and tailored it to us. He showed us his Belgrade, the real culture of the country. I was sceptical at first but I will be booking again with Homefans.

Andrija - What a Host!

The derby is great as expected but what really made the trip was Andrija the local host. Not only did he organise literally anything we wanted or needed he got us into stadiums we didn't know existed and introduced us to loads of amazing people! Would honestly go back just for a night out with Andrija!

Juan Ghibesi



The best Derby on the World. Very good organazied. Nice Hotel in the near from the Stadium. Belgrad lovley City to discover. We did a old school Stadium Tour with the host Andrija. The best Stadium Tour in my Life. Serbian Diner very amazing. I can wait the next Trip with Homefans.



Belgrade Derby

Wow! This trip was certainly worth the wait as last years planned trip couldn’t go ahead due to Covid. Firstly, I would like to give my appreciation to Andrija, he was brilliant and showed me so much and fitted in 2 extra matches. He made it a fantastic and enjoyable experience for me. Belgrade was absolutely lovely to see and as for the match it completely blew my mind it was an incredible atmosphere from both sets of supporters. Highly recommend The Eternal Derby trip!

What a trip!

This trip managed to go above and beyond my already high expectations! Especially with the addition of a Euroleague basketball game. The Eternal derby is something from another era of passionate football, pyro show, correo, flares, non-stop singing and amazing atmosphere. Every true football fan needs to experience this. Andrija and Djuka, our hosts, and their friends & family made sure that we all had the best time, absolute legends. Highly recommended football (and not only) experience. Hvala Vam Belgrade & Homefans.

We missed some information as the hosts forgot to add us in the group chat. Furthermore, Andrija en Djuka were really helpfull and we got a great time Serbia! The passion of the Eternal derby is what you should have seen! I would definately recommend this trip



A must for the football lovers

A well organized trip. Smooth airport transfers, very nice good located hotel. Our group asked for an extra game in Novi Sad and a basketball match on top and the guides organized it! The derby was like a high-class piece of theatre and not dangerous at all. Don't hesitate to do this. Our life is to short. Just do it!

A dream experience

I couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Andrija and Djuka made us all feel so welcoming and gave a both fantastic and balanced insight into the two teams. The game was everything and more from the atmosphere to the performance on the pitch with several added bonuses. Would absolutely recommend to anyone thinking of going. This was also the first trip I have done abroad on my own and I’d urge anyone who is worried about it to do the same, you won’t regret it

An absolutely amazing experience

This tour exceeded my already very high expectations. We couldn't have hoped for better local hosts than Andreja and Djuka who will be friends for life! They made us really welcome, arranged additional matches to visit and kept us informed and smiling at all times. The hotel was excellent and in a great location. And The Eternal Derby blew my mind!! Everything I hoped for and more. Firecrackers, flares, fires, non stop deafening singing, riot police galore. Unfortunately Partizan lost :-( I would recommend this trip, I will be back and will do it again and other trips with Home Fans. The best trip and experience ever. Thanks!!!!!

Fantastic weekend in Belgrade!

We head a fantastic weekend in Belgrade. The hosts, Andrija and Djuka, were really great. They gave us a lot of information and arranged everything we needed. Great guys with passion for the game and their clubs! They even arranged an extra game for us on saturday at Vojvodina. The game was also great with an amazing atmosphere. The hotel was good, the group was nice and the beer was cold. I can recommend this trip to every footballfan. Thanks Homefans!

Amazing experience!

We have just returned from an amazing trip in Belgrade. It was four days with three games. Our guides, Andrija and Djuka, were on hand at any time. They arranged everything for us from football related questions to advice on nightlife. Everything to give us that crazy time in Belgrade. On Thursday a great match in the Conference league of Partizan, a bonus to go to Novi Sad and see Vojvodina and on Sunday the derby! What a match, it couldn't have been better. The Eternal Derby, through this experience it will stay with us forever!

Great experience!

Had a great time in Belgrade. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful.

Amazing Experience!

This game has been on the bucket list for a long time but it was absolutely worth the wait! First and foremost Andrija and Djuka (Serbian hosts) were first class and pulled out all of the stops to ensure our group had an excellent time. They both went above and beyond and absolutely nothing was a hassle for them. The game itself was out of this world and football games back home are going to be a difficult watch now! A phenomenal experience that has to be done by anyone who has an passion for football and fan culture.

An unforgettable experience!

A must-do bucket list game for any football fan. Hosts Andrija and Djuka were both fantastic, with them - as well as their close circle of friends and family - going beyond and above to look after us. The derby is unbelievable! You get a good balanced view of both teams from the tours and hosts. Also booked this during the pandemic and as a result was cancelled twice. Homefans were great at their comms/reassurance throughout. Have done DIY games abroad before but would recommend doing this one via Homefans for a proper authentic experience!

Great weekend in Belgrade

I joined the first Belgrade trip with my brother via Homefans. We had a great time in Belgrade with Ivan. He showed us around and made us welcome in his city, the seats in the stadium were great, the Serbian dinner was amazing and the group was also fun. Definitely recommended!

What a derby!

I went with Homefans to the Belgrade derby hosted by Ivan in 2018 and I absolutely loved it. An incredible city and amazing experience all around. Ivan was a great host and we enjoyed every minute of the trip!

Unbelievable atmosphere and a great city break

Had a tremendous time at March's Eternal Derby at the Marakana. I had always wanted to experience the atmosphere at this fixture and it didn't disappoint- one for any football fan's bucket list. The hosts were knowledgeable and genial and we really enjoyed exploring the city-the nightlife is really good and really cheap. The only thing missing was a goal so we will definitely be back to see how things measure up at the Partizan stadium!

The Eternal Derby > Eternal Memories

Our group attended the Eternal Derby with Homefans in March 2020 for the game at the Marakana stadium. The hosts were an encyclopedia of not only local, but international footballing knowledge and constantly answered our questions around the stadium, fan culture, the city of Belgrade etc. Belgrade has ranked as one of our favourite European cities with great bars and restaurants , whilst the private stadium tours and derby itself were superb. We've since booked for more trips with Homefans and will return one day for the Eternal Derby at the Partizan Stadium to see how it compares
