The 1969–70 Yugoslav First League season was the 24th season of the First Federal League (Serbo-Croatian: 'Prva savezna liga'), the top level association football league of SFR Yugoslavia, since its establishment in 1946. Eighteen teams contested the competition, with Red Star winning their tenth national title.

Match fixing attempt[edit]

Before the league fixture in Ljubljana between Olimpija Ljubljana and FK Sarajevo on November 17, 1969, Sarajevo's goalkeeper Refik Muftić reported to the authorities a bribery attempt by a man unknown to him who reportedly wanted him to throw the match in return for 2,000 Yugoslav new dinars. On advice from the police and club officials, and as part of the sting, Muftić took the money and also took his place between the posts. Sarajevo ended up winning 4-1 that day while Muftić had to leave the match early due to colliding with Olimpija player Radoslav Bečejac. In the end, Olimpija club board member Anton Franetič got arrested - in addition to his post at the club, he was also in the management of Ljubljana Credit Bank (Ljubljanska kreditne banka i štedionica). However, the whole thing was soon forgotten and swept under the carpet.[1]
