Yugoslav Women's Handball Championship

The Yugoslav Women's Handball Championship was the premier championship for women's handball clubs in SFR Yugoslavia. Founded like its male counterpart in 1953, it was dissolved in 1992 following the breakup of Yugoslavia.

The championship's most successful teams were Radnički Belgrade with fourteen championships (including ten titles in a row) and Lokomotiva Zagreb with ten. Budućnost Titograd follows with four titles, while Spartak Subotica won three, and Lokomotiva Virovitica, Podravka Koprivnica and Voždovac Belgrade clinched two.[1]

The teams from the championship were successful in international competitions, most notably Radnički Belgrade winning three European Cups and three Cup Winners' Cups. ŽRK Osijek and ŽRK Split also won the Cup Winners' Cup and ŽRK Trešnjevka and Lokomotiva Zagreb did the same in the EHF Cup, while Budućnost Titograd won both competitions.[2]
