The Slovenian First League of Handball (Slovene: 1. A Državna Rokometna Liga), currently named 1. NLB Leasing liga due to sponsorship reasons, is the top team handball league in Slovenia. It was also named 1. SRL (1991-02), Liga Siol (2002-04), Liga Telekom (2004-06) and MIK 1. Liga (2006-10). It is organized by the Handball Federation of Slovenia (Rokometna Zveza Slovenije). The league comprises 14 teams.


The Handball Federation of Slovenia was formed on 11 December in 1949 under the former Handball federation of Yugoslavia. In Yugoslavia, the Slovenian clubs played in the Yugoslavian Handball Championship in I. and II. league, the interrepublic and the republic leagues. Slovan, Celje and Rudar Trbovlje were the only slovenian teams that played in the Yugoslav First League. In the 1991–92 season, just after the Slovenian independence, the Handball Federarion of Slovenia was accepted to the European Handball Federation and the International Handball Federation and the first season in Europe for the Slovenian teams was played in the 1992–93 season.
