The Yugoslav Chess Championship is a tournament with great tradition, held to determine the national champion. It was a very strong event which represented players from six federal republics, today independent countries.

Since 1992, the Yugoslav championship no longer represented the players from four newly independent countries – Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republic of Macedonia. Serbia and Montenegro formed the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia which got renamed into Serbia and Montenegro in 2003. In 2006 Serbia and Montenegro separated and formed its own championships.
