The Serbian First League (Serbian: Прва лига Србије / Prva liga Srbije) commonly known by the abbreviation of PLS, is the name for the second tier in Serbia's football league. The league was formed in 2004, following a reshuffle of the second tier Serbo-Montenegrin divisions. It is operated by the Football Association of Serbia.

Format[edit]

The league is formed by 18 clubs which play all against one another twice, once at home, once away. The top two clubs are directly promoted to the Serbian SuperLiga, while the bottom are relegated to the Serbian League. The Football Association of Serbia announced that in the 2012–13 Serbian First League edition, 6 clubs will be relegated at the end of the season, two more that usually, so the season 2013–14 will be reduced to 16 clubs.[1]

History[edit]

The Serbian First League is the successor of the Yugoslav Second League. With the break-up of SFR Yugoslavia in 1992, the clubs from the newly independent states of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia and Slovenia joined to their own newly formed leagues, while Serbia and Montenegro remained united and renamed into FR Yugoslavia with the clubs from both republics kept competing in the league. In 2003, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was renamed to Serbia and Montenegro and the football league followed suit. Finally, after Montenegrin independence in 2006, the Montenegrin clubs withdrew and formed their own league.

Serbia and Montenegro second tier[edit]

In 2004, a reshuffle of the second tier of the Serbo-Montenegrin football league system saw two parallel leagues set up, for each republic.
