Montenegro first league
Montenegro was independent from the late Middle Ages until it declared its union with Serbia in 1918 and subsequently became part of various incarnations of Yugoslavia and the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro. During this time, football in Montenegro was part of the wider Yugoslavian structures. As a result of the Montenegrin independence referendum on 21 May 2006, Montenegro declared independence two weeks later, on 3 June, and formed its own football association.
Following the independence of Montenegro in June 2006, the Serbian team was considered the successor of Serbia and Montenegro. However, at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, which took place in the second half of June and in July 2006, Serbia and Montenegro continued to play as representatives of the two independent states of Serbia and Montenegro. Despite an impressive record in qualifying for the tournament, the team struggled in a difficult first round and had to retire after not having won any matches, scored ten goals and scored only two goals. After the tournament, the team broke up and was replaced by Serbia.
The Montenegrin Football Federation had been a sub-body since March 1931, but on 30 June 2006 applied for independent membership of FIFA and UEFA. Full UEFA membership was awarded in January 2007 Conduct the Montenegrin First League as the country's premier football competition. The winners of this competition will enter the European competition in 2007. The new national team was organized and their first match took place on March 24, 2007 in Podgorica against Hungary. The Montenegrin team won the match 2-1.
The exclusive national competition was held in Montenegro when the Cetinje Football Association started its regular championship in 1931.
Nowadays the Montenegrin First League is the most important football competition in Montenegro. It is at the head of a pyramid of three leagues, the lowest, the Montenegrin Third League, divided into three regional competitions (North, Central, South). Since 2007, the champions of the Montenegrin First League have qualified for the UEFA Champions League. The runner-up and third-placed team enter the UEFA Europe League like a Montenegrin cup winner.
