HistoryEdit

The football team was established in 1990 as TJ Ozeta Dukla Trenčín and started in the third division of the Czechoslovak competition, finishing one place below TTS Trenčín. Afterwards both clubs merged. Later, the club spent three seasons (1994–97) in the second division in Slovakia.[2] Since 1997, Trenčín has continuously played in the Slovak first division.

In 2002 the club changed its name to FK Laugaricio Trenčín, and one year later became FK AS Trenčín (Araver a Synot Trenčín).

The club's biggest success so far was winning the national title in the 2014–15 season and reaching second place in the 2013–14 season. Trenčín has also made four appearances in the Intertoto Cup (1998, 1999, 2000 and 2002). It is owned by former Dutch international Tschen La Ling.[3] After 11 seasons in the top level the club was relegated after the 2007–08 season.[2]
