^A special format tournament was held to re-affirm the newly found Yugoslav unity. The tournament consisted of eight teams: six representing Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia respectively, one representing Vojvodina, an autonomous region within Serbia and finally the Jugoslovenska Narodna Armija team, a selection of Yugoslav People's Army football players.
^The last championship started without clubs from newly independent Slovenia and Croatia, while clubs from Bosnia, with exception of FK Borac Banja Luka, too abandoned competition on a winter break with imminent country's independence, leaving only Serbian, Montenegrin and Macedonian clubs competing in the second half of the season. (See subsection on 1991–92.)
^The Yugoslav FA decided that the last round of fixtures had to be
replayed, after accusations that certain results had been fixed.
Partizan, who had won the title with a 4-0 over Zeljeznicar Sarajevo,
refused, after which the game was awarded 3-0 to Zeljeznicar, which
gave Crvena zvezda the title. Crvena zvezda played in the 1986/87
European Champions Cup. However, after a sequence of legal processes,
the original final table, with Partizan as champions, was officially
recognized, in 1987. Yugoslavia list of champions. RSSSF. 28 May 2008 [2008-06-26]. （原始内容存档于2015-12-08）.
^Ten clubs had started the 1986/87 season with a deduction of 6 points,
among them Partizan and Red Star Belgrade, because of the events in the
previous season. Vardar, who had not been deducted 6 points, won
the title, and participated in the 1987/88 Champions Cup, but the points
deduction was later annulled after more legal proceedings, and the title
was given to Partizan, who headed the table with the deduction. Yugoslavia list of champions. RSSSF. 28 May 2008 [2008-06-26]. （原始内容存档于2015-12-08）.
