NK Osijek confirmed that there were no Osijek footballers on this bus. The first league team from the Drava uses five different buses owned by APP Požega that bear the same characteristics. 

NK Osijek will be making their way to Sankt Pölten in Austria where they will play their return match of the Europa League playoffs against Austria Wien this week. 

When these buses are not used by the football club, they are used to transport passengers on standard routes.
