History

This was the first club competition on a national level for clubs from Kingdom of Yugoslavia (named the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes until 1930). The league started out in 1923 and the first four seasons had a cup tournament format. In 1927, the league went into a league competition with Hajduk Split winning the first league competition. During that season, it was also a qualifier for the Mitropa Cup which lasted until 1992.

The league competition would be the main part of the league going from 1927 all the way up until the second World War. During the 30s it was all about BSK Belgrade who stay in the top 4 all through the 1930s with a title in 1931 and 1936 and the last three titles before World War II started around Yugoslavia.
