Perhaps the strongest rivalry Atomic Bitola have is that with cross-town rival F.C. Bitola Stars. The teams share a strong, yet special, rivalry because the clubs managers are best friends, but are very competitive when it comes to the crunch. Kremkovci and FK NAJDOBRI and Atomic Bitola also share a fierce rivalry for the same reason, but the stakes aren't as high when Atomic's face Bitola Stars.
