A man passes by empty Red Star soccer stadium in Belgrade, Serbia, Tuesday, March 19, 2013. They turned football stadiums into battlegrounds and then fought real wars. Now, nearly 20 years after the wars ended, the Balkan states are mulling the formation of a joint football league, hoping to give a new life to the once-thriving competition. Europe's football governing body, UEFA, is considering a league that would comprise the former Yugoslav states _ Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Macedonia _ plus maybe Bulgaria and Hungary.
