The origins of modern era sports in Gračanica were recorded in the period between the two world wars. There were several football clubs and sports sections within the so-called Sokol Society.

By the end of the Second World War, during the fall of 1945 a football club named “Bratstvo” was established. The club gathered a large number of young athletes and played in former leagues of northeast Bosnia. Since 2000, the club has been competing in the first division of B&H Federation.

After the construction of Gračanica handball courts in 1955 followed by three years of a dedicated work of enthusiasts, a handball team from Gračanica was included in the first official competition of Tuzla district handball leagues, where it competed from 1958 to 1962, and later it continued to compete in the regional and national handball B&H league. During the most intense aggression on Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1994, Gračanica handball players gather again and start their trainings. The highest score in the history of the club was achieved during the season 1999/2000, with “Bratstvo” winning the champion title in Bosnia.

The first women’s handball club in Gračanica was founded in 1959. Female handball players from Gračanica competed in various national rank leagues. The first official match after the war was played in Gradačac on October 24, 1998.

The first basketball team in Gračanica was established in 1972. Until 1992 it competed under the name BC “Bratstvo” in the national basketball league.
After a break during the war, it started playing again under the name BC “Gračanica” in 1996. Three years later, during the season 1999/2000, the club took 5th place in the first B&H basketball league. In 2004 it goes from the A-2 league into the A-league in which it still competes today.
In addition to these sports, a great importance is given to women’s and men’s volleyball, karate, indoor soccer and chess.
