Stevan Stevanovic is a Serbia Rugby League local hero


Of the many social influencers playing rugby league around the world, Belgrade, Serbia may not be the obvious place to look. But you would be wrong, Serbia rugby league captain, Stevan Stevanovic is exactly that - he has 153,000 followers on Instagram!


Stevan is a life-long rugby league player having taken up the game as a 13-year-old and having made his senior debut at 16 years old. He originally played for RC Dorcol in the Serbian Championship. Whilst at the Spiders, Stevan received his first call up to represent the national team and he has never looked back and is now the captain of his country.


He now plays for Partizan Belgrade and has a very successful career both on and off the field. He is a graduate of Economics from the University of Belgrade and has started several business ventures including Rice Kings, a healthy bar with over 30 flavours and a gym called Supernova. Last year he and his partners opened a Portuguese restaurant in the heart of old Belgrade.


All of which added together makes Stevan an influencer in more ways than one. His Instagram account has over 150,000 followers and he puts it to excellent use promoting not only his business interests but also his rugby league activities.


“Rugby league is my first love. Throughout my life I have always tried to enjoy my sport. My Instagram platform allows me to stay in sport.


“It’s a big platform that offers a lot, if you know how to use it. “
