The Football Association of Yugoslavia (FSJ) ( _sr. Fudbalski Savez Jugoslavije/Фудбалски Савез Југославије, _hr. Nogometni Savez Jugoslavije; _sl. Nogometna zveza Jugoslavije; _mk. Фудбалски Сојуз на Југославија) was the governing body of football in Yugoslavia, based in Belgrade, with a major administrative branch in Zagreb.

It organized the Yugoslav First League, the Yugoslavia national football team, and the Second Leagues of all six former Yugoslav republics.

History

It was formed in 1919 in Zagreb under the Croatian name "Nogometni Savez Jugoslavije". The association dissolved in late 1929 after disagreements between the Zagreb and Belgrade subassociations. This resulted in the association being moved to Belgrade where it adopted the Serbian name "Fudbalski Savez Jugoslavije".

During this time there were several subassociations which organized football on the regional level. These were: [ [http://www.fscg.cg.yu/savez1.php?id=4 History of Montenegrin Football Association] ]

*Sarajevo Football Subassociation

In 1991, the SFR Yugoslavia dissolved, but the republics of Serbia and Montenegro reconstituted a union under the name FR Yugoslavia, and kept the football association along with its membership in FIFA and UEFA. The Football Association of Yugoslavia was replaced by the Football Association of Serbia and Montenegro in 2003, when the nation changed their name to Serbia and Montenegro.
