Slovakia Fortuna liga
The Slovak Super League is the highest football league in Slovakia, currently known as the Fortuna League due to a sponsorship arrangement. It was founded in 1993 after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. The record for most titles is nine, held by Slovan Bratislava, who are defending champions.
Slovakia was part of Czechoslovakia (1918-1993). The first Slovak championship Zvazové Majstrovstvá Slovenska was held between Slovak teams (1925-1933). Until 1935/36 no Slovakian team played in the Czechoslovak league. During the German occupation of Czechoslovakia Czech and Slovak clubs competed against each other in separate competitions. The only Slovak club in the league, ŠK Bratislava, was removed from the league and joined a new Slovak league, the Slovenská liga (1939-1945), in the newly independent Slovak Republic.
Based on an idea by Umberto Agnelli, the Golden Star award for excellence in sports was introduced to honor teams that have won several championships or other accolades.
The current officially recognized Fortuna League stars are:
Star - ŠK Slovan Bratislava received in 2009
Star - MŠK Žilina received in 2010
