The first football club in Dubnica was founded in 1926 under the name Kyselicová jedenástka. Once a branch of the Škoda Plzeň machine-tool company was built up, this economically strong entity became the main supporter of the football development in the city.
Football was played there on a regional level until 1974 when the club with rocking success found its place in the second Slovak Football League. The only big name of that period was Ján Kapko whose way through clubs such as Jednota Trenčín and Dukla Praha led o the Czechoslovak national team.
A breakthrough in the development, tructure, attitude to and perception of the club by the public occurred as late as in 1994 when both the support team and team of players were exchanged. Success of those essential changes showed up as soon as in 1996 through the rise to the top football league where, except for two seasons, the club has been playing until today. A fundamental step towards the club’s life change is the project of youth football development in the city launched by the new management. The project implementation started with pupils of the fi rst grade of elementary school and now it involves 320 juniors divided to four preparatory, fi ve cadet and four junior teams.
