Sartid revert to Smederevo

Serbia and Montenegro side FK Sartid have changed their name back to FK Smederevo.

Serbia and Montenegro side FK Sartid have changed their name back to FK Smederevo following a unanimous decision at the club's general assembly over the weekend.

Original name
The club from the industrial city of Smederevo, will compete once more under their original name when the new First Federal League season begins on 7 August. Founded in 1924 as FK Smederevo, they changed their name to Sartid 12 years ago in recognition of their main sponsors.

European elimination
They competed in this season's UEFA Intertoto Cup as Sartid but were eliminated by Belarussian side FC Dinamo Minsk in the second round. The club's biggest success was winning the Serbia and Montenegro Cup in 2003.
