Slovenia - List of Champions

The country is independent since 1991; the "Slovenska Liga" until 1991 did usually not contain all Slovenian clubs (e.g. Olimpija usually played in the first Yugoslavian division of which the Slovenian league at the time was a feeder league). In the thirties, the league contained at least one club from Croatia, ČSK from Čakovec, who won it in 1938.
