The Football Association of Serbia (Serbian: Фудбалски савез Србије / Fudbalski savez Srbije or ФСС/FSS) is the governing body of football in Serbia, based in Belgrade. It organizes Serbian football leagues, namely the Serbian Superliga, the Serbia national football team, as well as the Second Leagues.

FSS replaced the Football Association of Yugoslavia, which was founded in 1919 in Zagreb and inherited the Football Association of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006. Javier Clemente was appointed the first ever coach of the Serbia National team. The current temporarily coach, until a new one is elected, is Ljubinko Drulović.[1]
