Preliminary roundEdit

A preliminary round was held in order to reduce the number of teams competing in the first round to 32. It consisted of 3 single-legged ties, with a penalty shoot-out as the decider if the score was tied after 90 minutes.[1] This round featured the bottom 5 teams from the 2015–16 Serbian First League, as well as 5 regional cup winners. The draw was held on 3 September 2016, and it contained seeded and unseeded teams. The bottom 5 teams from the 2015–16 Serbian First League (Dinamo Vranje, Sloboda Užice, Donji Srem, Loznica and Radnički 1923) were set as unseeded teams, with the 5 regional cup winners (Žarkovo, Radan Lebane, Polet Ljubić, Mladost Bački Jarak and Trepča) being set as seeded teams. The draw was conducted with the idea of minimizing expenses for the participating clubs.[1] The matches were played on 7 September 2016.[2] Donji Srem was dissolved after the end of 2015–16 season, so Mladost Bački Jarak, which was drawn against Donji Srem, received an automatic bye to the first round. Furthermore, Sloga PM, which earned a place in the first round via last season's final position in the First League, was also dissolved. Thus, both teams from the proposed tie Radan Lebane - Dinamo Vranje received an automatic bye to the first round. In total, around 1050 spectators attended the games (avg. 350 per game).
