Danish Superliga Facts

The league replaced the old Danish 1st Division in 1991. At the start, ten teams were competing. The number of teams increased and decreased throughout the years, just like the league structure. In the beginning, the teams played each other twice for the championship. Later, the league would be stretched out over two calendar years where the ten teams played each other twice in the first half. In the second half, the lowest placed teams were cut off, and the points of the remaining teams were halved. The eight teams would play each other twice again for the title.

Before the 1995/1996 season, the number of teams competing increased to 12. The teams played each other thrice for the title. The league structure would change multiple times throughout the years. Just like the league name. The Superliga changed the league name multiple times due to sponsorships with Coca-Cola, Face Brewery, SAS and Alka.
