The history of organised sport in Montenegro dates back to the 19th century. Back then, tennis, football and golf were the most popular sports, but skating, skiing, cycling and horse racing had also their supporters. By the beginning of the 20th century, the first sport clubs had already been founded. In 1908 Montenegro received an official invitation from the British King Edward VIII to participate at the Olympic Games in London. Unfortunately, it was not a member of the International Olympic Committee, so it was ineligible to participate.
