The Serbian League (Serbian : Српска лига / Srpska liga) is the third level football league in Serbia. It consists of four groups, namely Belgrade, East, Vojvodina, and West. The winner of each group earns promotion to the Serbian First League.

In the summer of 1995, after the initial three seasons, the league expanded from three to six groups. The Serbian League East split into the Serbian League Niš and Serbian League Timok, the Serbian League North split into the Serbian League Belgrade and Serbian League Vojvodina, while the Serbian League West split into the Serbian League Danube and Serbian League Morava. In the summer 1997, the Serbian League Kosovo was formed but lasted for only one season.
In the summer of 2003, the Serbian League went through a second major reorganization, when the number of groups was reduced to four.The Serbian League Niš and Serbian League Timok merged back into the Serbian League East, while the Serbian League Danube and Serbian League Morava merged back into the Serbian League West. Those two groups, East and West, previously existed from 1992 to 1995.

The Belgrade offensive or the Belgrade strategic offensive operation was a military operation during World War II in Yugoslavia in which Belgrade was liberated from the German Wehrmacht through the joint efforts of the Soviet Red Army, Yugoslav Partisans, and the Bulgarian Army. Soviet forces and local militias launched separate but loosely cooperative operations that undermined German control of Belgrade and ultimately forced a retreat. Martial planning was coordinated evenly among command leaders, and the operation was largely enabled through tactical cooperation between Josip Broz Tito and Joseph Stalin that began in September 1944. These martial provisions allowed Bulgarian forces to engage in operations throughout Yugoslav territory, which furthered tactical success while increasing diplomatic friction.
