July 2 – The Serbian FA (FFS) has started a major project to replace the pitches in eight stadiums in eight different Serbian cities, with renovation works on the facilities, used by Serbia’s professional clubs expected to be completed by the autumn.

The official announcement of the Serbian FA did not indicate how much the project was costing, or where the funding was coming from.

Along with the preparations of our clubs for the new season, work is also underway on the reconstruction of the grass pitches at the stadiums in Subotica, Novi Sad, Kruševac, Niš, Lučani, Novi Pazar (pictured), Ivanjica and Surdulica,” said an FFS statement.

“As from autumn, this great project will give a new, more beautiful and modern look of Serbian football and it aims to improve the conditions and raise the quality of football at all levels of competition.
