Format

The number of teams promoted between leagues or divisions varies, and promotion is usually contingent on meeting criteria set by the higher league, especially concerning appropriate facilities and finances. The top two levels contain one league each. Below this, the levels have progressively more parallel leagues, which each cover progressively smaller geographic areas. The top two leagues are under direct jurisdiction of the Serbian Football Association. From the 3rd level on, divided geographically into 4 leagues, the leagues are under the jurisdiction of one of the 4 football association subdivisions, Belgrade, East, Vojvodina and West.

In the top of the pyramid is the Serbian SuperLiga containing 16 clubs as of 2010-11 season. Below the SuperLiga is found the Serbian First League containing 18 clubs. The last 4 are relegated into the Srpska Liga, the 3rd level, divided into 4 leagues Serbian League Belgrade, Serbian League East, Serbian League Vojvodina and Serbian League West every one of them containing 16 clubs. Until 2006 the clubs from Montenegro were also included, and the leagues structure bellow and including 3rd level was slightly different because of it.
