Bosnia and Hercegovina comprises two parts - the Muslim-Croat Federation, with Sarajevo its capital, and the mainly Serb Republika Srpska, whose official capital is East Sarajevo.
Both city administrations say they hope co-operating over sports can have wider implications.
At the moment one of the main things the two sides share is scars of the civil war.
