History
• Maribor won the Slovenian Republic League – in the third tier of Yugoslavian football – in their first season. That earned them to right to try and qualify for the national second division which they duly accomplished by defeating Croatian side NK Uljanik. A hugely successful first campaign was crowned by the agreement to allow them to use the Ljudski vrt (Public Gardens) municipality stadium as their permanent home.

• They were promoted to the Yugoslavian top flight in 1967, and their highest finish of tenth – out of an 18-team league – came three years later before they were relegated in 1972. Maribor were one of the founding members of Slovenia's independent league in 1991, and are one of only three clubs, along with ND Gorica and NK Celje, who have never been relegated from the country's top division.

• The 1996/97 season proved to be the turning point in the history the club. They stormed to the title – becoming national champions for the first time – and averaged home gates of 5,289, still a record in the Slovenian first division.

• Under the stewardship of Bojan Prašnikar, Maribor came through ties against KRC Genk and Olympique Lyonnais to qualify for the 1999/2000 UEFA Champions League. To date, they are one of only four clubs – alongside GNK Dinamo Zagreb, FK Partizan and HNK Hajduk Split – from the former Yugoslavia to have participated in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
