Hajduk Kula liquidationEdit

In July Serbian SuperLiga club Hajduk Kula went defunct thus leaving an empty place in 2013–14 Serbian SuperLiga. On an urgent meeting in Football Association of Serbia, it was ruled that 3rd placed team from 2012–13 Serbian First League should be promoted to Serbian SuperLiga. It was also announced that, due to shortage of time until the beginning of the season, 13th placed team from last season is going to stay in the league for the current season. Formally, that meant that Voždovac was promoted and Teleoptik stayed in the league.
