Preliminary round[edit]

A preliminary round was held in order to reduce the number of teams competing in the next round to 32. It consisted of 4 single-legged ties (due to the fact that Smederevo was dissolved leaving a vacancy in the preliminary round), with a penalty shoot-out as the decider, if the score was tied after 90 minutes. The bottom 5 teams from the 2013–14 Serbian First League took part, as well as the 4 regional cup winners and a Kosovo and Metohija representative. The draw contained seeded and unseeded teams. The bottom 5 teams from the 2013–14 Serbian First League (Inđija, Timok, Dolina, Teleoptik and Smederevo) were set as unseeded teams, with the 4 regional cup winners (Dorćol, Semendria 1924, Moravac Orion and ČSK Čelarevo) and the Kosovo and Metohija representative being set as seeded teams. The draw was held on 30 August 2014, and was regionalised to minimise expenses for the participating clubs.
