HistoryEdit

1984–1995Edit

Slovenian Futsal League dates back to 1984, when the tournament system was used to determine the winner. Talci Maribor have won the first championship in the inaugural 1984–85 season. Talci Maribor and Vuko Ljubljana were the most successful teams of the period, winning five and four titles, respectively.

1995–presentEdit

The competition in its current format was established in the 1995–96 season, when the tournament was transformed into a league system. Juventus from Šentjur became the first champions with the same number of points (43) as the runners-up Vuko Ljubljana, but with better head-to-head statistics. In the following season Litija won their first title, playing under the name Assaloni Cosmos due to sponsorship reasons at the time. This was the first of the ten titles for Litija who are to date the most successful Slovenian futsal team.
