HistoryEdit

The league was formed as a second-tier league in Czechoslovakia. Before the dissolution of Czechoslovakia it consisted of 16 teams. Upon dissolution, six teams were promoted to the then newly formed Corgoň Liga. The league was expanded to 18 teams in 1996-97 season, but back to 16 in 2001-02 and 12 in 2006-07.

For 2014/2015 & 2015/2016 seasons the league became known as DOXXbet liga as part of a sponsorship agreement.[1]
