The 1988–89 Yugoslav First League season was the 43rd season of the First Federal League (Serbo-Croatian: 'Prva savezna liga'), the top level association football competition of SFR Yugoslavia, since its establishment in 1946.

Šajber's penalties[edit]

Two points were awarded for a win, while in case of a draw at the end of the ninety minutes - penalty kicks were taken and the shootout winner was awarded one point while the loser got nothing. The 1988-89 season was the very first to feature this tie-break system, and the Yugoslav FA's decision to implement this caused a lot of criticism and controversy. Apparently, the biggest proponent of the new system was FA president Slavko Šajber and the system was often derisively referred to in the media as 'Šajber's penalties'.
