In 2009 they withdrew from European competition for financial reasons,[1] after being unable to secure sponsorship. However, they returned to European competition in 2010, playing in the 2010–12 European Nations Cup Third Division.

In 2015, Rugby Klub Bratislava has settled to provide support for then national team, by providing to the national squad, adults and youths. The new dynamic has been support par the city of Bratislava, and the Government of Slovakia.
