History
• Originally founded under the Hungarian name Zsolnai TK, Žilina were among the strongest teams in Slovakia in their earliest years and were featured in 31 of the 48 top division seasons in the former Czechoslovakia between 1945 and 1993, when the Czech Republic and Slovakia went their separate ways.

• Their best Czechoslovakian season was in 1946/47, when they finished third behind the two powerful Prague sides AC Sparta Praha and SK Slavia Praha; in their best Czechoslovak Cup performance, the then SK Dynamo Žilina lose 3-0 to Dukla Praha in the 1960/61 final, a result that earned them a first tilt at UEFA competition, since their conquerors were Czech champions too.

• Entering the 1961/62 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, Žilina eliminated Greece's Olympiacos FC in the first round, but in the next stage – the quarter-finals – they bowed out to ACF Fiorentina, winning 3-2 at home but going down 2-0 in Italy.

• Also known as TJ ZVL Žilina and ŠK Žilina in Czechoslovakia, Žilina's stock rose after independence; a side assembled by Ladislav Jurkemik won their first Slovakian title in 2001/02, though he had left to become national-team coach before his replacement Leoš Kalvoda actually confirmed top spot. They retained the title under Milan Lešický the following season, Marek Mintál finishing as top scorer for the second season in succession.

• Jurkemik led the Šošoni to a third consecutive crown in 2003/04, and a fourth came in impressive style under Pavel Vrba three years later; former Czech international midfielder Pavel Hapal helped them win a fifth title in 2009/10, and they won a first domestic double in 2011/12.
