League History

Top Slovak hockey clubs were part of the Czechoslovak league until the split of Czechoslovakia in 1993. The separate Slovak league made its debut in the 1993–94 season and has been independent for 20 years. The league has been managed by the Pro-Hokej company since 2000. The most successful clubs are HC Slovan Bratislava, HC Kosice, and Dukla Trencin. The name of the Slovak Extraliga has evolved over time due to its general partners, such as Slovak Telekom, Slovnaft and Tipsport. Four clubs of the league have won the IIHF Continental cup: HC Slovan Bratislava in 2004, HKM Zvolen in 2005, MHC Martin in 2009, and TJ VSZ Kosice (now called HC Kosice) in the inaugural edition in 1998, beating out Eisbaren Berlin.
