The 1970–71 Yugoslav First League season was the 25th 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, which ended with Hajduk Split winning their fourth title, club's first in 16 years.

Incidents[edit]

The season featured an incident that occurred in Split's Stari plac Stadium in fall 1970 during the Hajduk vs. OFK Beograd fixture. With the score tied at 2-2, match referee Ristić fell unconscious after getting hit in the head with an object thrown from the stands. The match was stopped and the Yugoslav FA's (FSJ) disciplinary body decided to register it with 0-3 score for OFK Beograd.

The disciplinary measure set off huge days-long, often violent protests in Split that quickly assumed a distinctly anti-Belgrade and anti-Serbian tone. Led by the club's hardcore fans Torcida Split, the practice of seeking out parked cars with city of Belgrade license plates and pushing them into the sea from the docks was especially widespread in Split during the protests.

Due to their political undertones and the potential to undermine the country's official inter-ethnic guiding principle during the sensitive time when MASPOK was gathering steam in SR Croatia, the Split football protests quickly came to the attention of Yugoslav politicians who decided to deal with the situation by pressing FSJ into changing its disciplinary ruling and registering the 2-2 score. FSJ did exactly that, reinstating the score at the moment when the match was interrupted as the official result.[1]
