The league was played for the first time in 1985. In its early years and throughout the 1990s, it was dominated by the Tórshavn teams, with HB winning it seven times and B36 four; other teams to be crowned champions in the period were Skála, two times, and ÍF, once. KÍ also won their first title during the successful period of the Tórshavn duo.
The KÍ era
In a interview in 2005 after winning the league for the sixth consecutive season, KÍ midfielder Malena Josephsen stated: "We know when we go on the pitch that we will win the match, the only question is [by] how much we will win. We are not getting any better by playing in this league."
A new champion and sponsorship deal
For the 2018 season, the league gained its first sponsorship deal, when the FSF announced that Betri, a bank headquartered in Tórshavn, would sponsor the men's and women's leagues, thus changing 1. deild kvinnur's name to Betri deildin kvinnur.
In 2019 the league will be contested by five teams, playing each other four times for a total of 16 matches. A second division exists, but there is no promotion and relegation between the two divisions.
