Until 2013/14 the top level league was called Prva Ženska Liga (First League). For that season the Super Liga was created on top of the league system. The second level league is now the prva liga.

Current FormatEdit

Until 2012/13 the league played a double round robin. The winner was the champion of Serbia.

From 2013/14 onwards, with only eight teams in the league there are two stages. In the first stage, each team plays the other teams two times for a total of 14 matches. After that, the top four teams play a Championship play-off and the bottom four a relegation play-off (play-out). Matches against the teams from the other play-off group are deleted from the standings, thus only matches against teams from the same play-off group make the final standings. In each play-off teams meet each other twice again for a total of 20 matches per season, of which 12 are taken into account for the final standings.[1] The winning team of the championship play-off is Serbian champion and qualifies for a spot in the UEFA Women's Champions League. The bottom placed team of the play-out is relegated to the second league. When tied on points, better results with tied teams decide the rank.
