The Eternal derby (also called the derby of Southeast Europe) is the local derby in Belgrade,Serbia, between fierce city rivals Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade, two of the biggest and most popular sports societies in Serbia. The rivalry is present in a number of different sports but the most intense matches are between football, basketball and handball sections of both multi-sport clubs. It started immediately after the creation of the two clubs in 1945 and the two clubs have been dominant in domestic football since then.
According to a 2007 survey, Red Star and Partizan are the most popular clubs in Serbia.They also have many supporters in the other former Yugoslav republics and in the Serbian diaspora.
In September 2009, the Daily Mail ranked the Eternal Belgrade derby 4th among the 10 greatest football rivalries of all time.The highest attendance for a Red Star–Partizan match was about 108,000 spectators at the Red Star Stadium.
