2016–17 Serbian First League

The Serbian First Football League (Serbian: Prva Liga Srbija) is the second-highest football league in Serbia. The league is operated by the Serbian FA. 16 teams competed in the league for the 2016–17 season. Two teams were promoted to the Serbian SuperLiga. Four teams were relegated to the Serbian League, the third-highest division overall in the Serbian football league system. Due to extreme financial difficulties, Sloga Petrovac na Mlavi application for 2016–17 season was rejected. On an emergency meeting in the Serbian FA, on 18 July 2016, it was announced that Sloboda Užice would, as a consequence of Sloga's relegation, stay in the league for 2016–17 season.[1] The season begun in August 2016 and ended in May 2017.
