“1. We demand active communication of the FSS with all clubs of the Serbian Super League, and especially with our two clubs which are the bearer and engine of development of club, and thus representative football, in order to avoid repeating last week’s case of making important decisions regarding the national league without any It is also necessary to separate the Communities of Superleague and First League clubs of Serbia, as well as to hold Superleague meetings at least once a month so that all clubs have the opportunity to participate in the decision-making process. also the presidents of our two largest clubs must have a place in all the highest bodies of the FSS.

“5. Abolish the levy on clubs’ income from transfers at a rate of 3%, which violates, inter alia, the rule prohibiting the participation of third parties in transfers.
“6. The FSS should consult our two biggest clubs on all important strategic issues.
“7. The rule of four foreigners should not be limited to the number of foreign players in the protocol but exclusively on the field.
