Changes from 2014–15Edit

Structural changesEdit

The competition has been split into two stages, regular season and playoffs.[1]

Regular seasonEdit

Each of the 16 competitors in the SuperLiga hosts every other team once in the regular season, for a total of 30 matches. A win earns three points and a draw earns one point. Teams are ranked by total points, then by total wins and finally by goal difference, number of scored goals, number of away goals and number of away wins. If teams are still level, a test-match is played in two legs to determine the final order in the standings. A playoff phase is then played from March to May.[1]

Championship playoffEdit

The point system in the championship playoff is the same as during the regular season, except that each team starts with half of the points they won in the regular season, rounded up to the nearest integer.[1]

The top eight teams from the regular season enter the championship playoff, with the first-placed team winning the championship of Serbia. Each team plays their opponents once. In the case of a tie, the number of points won in the regular season will be used as a primary tie-breaker.[1]

Relegation playoffEdit

Teams ranked 9 to 16 after the regular season enter the relegation playoffs, with the last two placed teams will be relegated to the Serbian First League. Each team plays their opponents once.[1]

TeamsEdit

Location of teams in 2015–16 Serbian SuperLiga

The league contains 16 teams: thirteen teams from the 2014–15 Serbian SuperLiga, two new teams from the 2014–15 Serbian First League and the winner of the play-offs between the 14th placed team from the 2014–15 SuperLiga and the third placed team from the 2014–15 First League. Radnik, the 2014–15 First League champion, joins the top level for the first time in its history. Runners-up Javor are back just one year after their relegation. Metalac won the play-off against Napredak Kruševac and returns to the top level after three years.
