Yugoslav Second League (Croatian: 2. Savezna liga, Serbian: 2. Caвeзнa лигa) was the second tier football league of SFR Yugoslavia. The top clubs were promoted to the top tier, the Yugoslav First League.

The Yugoslav Second League was played between 1946 and 1991. Although the Yugoslav First League was played since 1923, in the period prior of 1945 the league system was different and a Yugoslav Second League never existed as such.

League format[edit]

During time, the league changed its format:

  • In 1946-47 each one of the 6 republics had its own league (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia)
  • Between 1947-48 to 1951 there was the "Unified league" (Jedinstvena liga)
  • In 1952 each of the republics played its own league (Republičke lige)
  • 1952-53 an "Inter-republics leagues" were played (Međurepubličke lige)
  • Between 1953-54 and 1954-55 an "Unified league" were played again
  • Between 1955-56 and 1957-58 the league was divided in 4 "zones" (zone, singular zona) with a total of 5 groups.
  • Between 1958-59 and 1967-68 two groups geographically divided existed: East and West (Istok and Zapad)
  • Between 1968-69 and 1972-73 it was divided in four groups: East, West, North and South (Istok, Zapad, Sever/Sjever, Jug)`
  • Between 1973-74 and 1987-88 the league returned to 2 groups system: East and West (Istok and Zapad)
  • Between 1988-89 and 1990-91 an "Unified league" was played (Jedinstvena liga)
