TeamsEdit

YUBA was founded to promote professional basketball in Yugoslavia independent of political situation and when the draw was held in June 1991, following 12 clubs were supposed to contest the league: Pop 84, Partizan, Cibona, Zadar, Vojvodina, IMT, Smelt Olimpija, Bosna, Crvena Zvezda, Sloboda Dita, Oveco Zagreb and Rabotnički.

Later, due to Yugoslav Wars, all teams from Slovenia and Croatia abandoned the competition and were replaced with new clubs from the Yugoslav 1. B Federal Basketball League. An impromptu entry tournament for four 1.B Federal League teams—KK Prvi partizan Titovo Užice (soon to have its name changed to KK Užice), KK Spartak Subotica, KK Čelik Zenica, and MZT Skopje—was organized during October 1991 in Titograd.
