FK Voždovac Beograd 0-1 FK Novi Pazar
Jelen Superliga - I
SC Stadion, Beograd
FK Voždovac is a football club based in Belgrade. The club was formed in 1912, under the name FK Dušanovac. In 1929 it is renamed Voždovački SK. In 1973 changed its name to FK Voždovac. During the following decades it competed mostly in Serbian lower leagues. In 2005, top league side Železnik, financially struggling at the time, merged with Voždovac. This way Voždovac gained access to the highest league in Serbia and Montenegro in which achieved greatest success ending the season in third place.  Due to the club’s poor financial situation the following year the club was relegated from Super League to return to Super League this season with a new stadium.
Their new stadium was bulit on the roof of Stadion Shopping Center on the site where before the old stadium and stands can accommodate 5,000 spectators. The stadium is officially opened in September. Its located toward the south-east from the city center and main bus and railway station. Can be reached by bus 26 from the city center. Voždovac along with Monaco in Europe only has the stadium on the roof and it looks beautiful from the air but rather disappointing when you go through the shopping center parking lot to the narrow hallway who lead to the stadium on the roof. On the stands there are plenty of places that are in the "dead" corners, columns that hold the roof also bothered and even from the front row you do not see complete throw-in line. Although I am not inclined to criticize domestic stadiums, I expected much more from Serbian newest stadium. Tickets are available on the stadium box offices on the day of the match. Admission is typically 200rsd (€2) for a seat on any stand. 
The home team was a better rival, had a field initiative and opportunities for goal, but in the end guests were happy along with their fans. Also Voždovac has a very good and organized group of fans which provided support until the very end, but the question remains, is it a bunch of pyrotechnics safe on the roof?
