Football in Serbia
Football has always been the most popular and successful sport in Serbia, the core country of the Yugoslavian federation of states. This fact still applies even after the break-up of the federation despite wrangling over clubs' ownership claims. Nevertheless the Red Star v. Partizan derby is still the highlight of the season throughout the entire area. Serbia has given a great deal to football but also derived enormous benefits - at the Olympic Games as well as at European and world level. Scores of famous players were bred in Serbia, some of whom were equally successful as coaches, including Miljan Miljanic (Real Madrid), Vujadin Bopskov (Sampdoria), Radomir Antic (Atlético Madrid) and Ratomir Dujkovic (national coach of Chile).
The second Goal project
When the Football Association of Serbia's (FSS) first Goal project for the construction of association headquarters was approved in 2006, the intention was to also build a technical centre on the site. The construction work will now be undertaken as part of the association's second Goal project, approved by the Goal Bureau on 1 December 2009. With the new technical centre, the FSS will have a fully fledged House of Football, in keeping with the vision of FIFA President Joseph. S Blatter.
