2017–18 Fortuna liga

The Slovak Super Liga is the top level football league in Slovakia, currently known as the Fortuna liga due to a sponsorship arrangement.[1] It was formed in 1993 following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. The record for most titles is eight, held by Slovan Bratislava. The current title holders are MŠK Žilina.

History[edit]

Slovakia was part of Czechoslovakia (1918-1993). First Slovak championship Zväzové Majstrovstvá Slovenska was played between Slovak teams (1925-1933). Until 1935-36, no Slovak team played in the Czechoslovak (professional, state) league. During German occupation of Czechoslovakia Czech and Slovak clubs were competed in their own, separate competitions.[2] The sole Slovak club in the league, ŠK Bratislava, was removed from the league and joined a new Slovak league, the Slovenská liga (1939-1945), in the newly-independent Slovak Republic.

Throughout the Fortuna liga history, the number of clubs competing at the top level in 1996 has increased, in 2000 has been gradually decreased and in 2006 has again increased. Below is a complete record of how many teams played in each season throughout the league's history:

 
  • 12 clubs = 1993–1996
  • 16 clubs = 1996–2000
  • 10 clubs = 2000–2006
  • 12 clubs = 2006–present
