The First League of Montenegro (Montenegrin:Prva crnogorska fudbalska liga1. CFL; pronounced [pr̂ːvaː t͡srnǒɡorskaː fûdbaːlskaː lǐːɡa]) is the top football league in Montenegro. It is headed by the Football Association of Montenegro. 12 teams participate in this league. The winner of the Montenegrin First League starts the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League from the second round. The second placed team and the National Cup winner play in the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Europa League. The last placed team are relegated to the Montenegrin Second League.

History[edit]

While Montenegro was part of socialist Yugoslavia, its top league was the Yugoslav First League. When SFRY dissolved, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was formed in 1992 and the Serbian and Montenegrin teams played in this league, although it was still named Yugoslav First League. In 2003, the FR Yugoslavia was renamed to Serbia and Montenegro and the football league followed suit. The First League of Montenegro was formed in 2004, as one of the state's two second division leagues, along with the Serbian First League. In 2006, Montenegro split from Serbia and Montenegro, thus making the First League of Montenegro its top national competition.
