History

First official futsal competition in Montenegro was organized in January 1988, as a Republic qualifiers for the final SFR Yugoslavia tournament.[1] Most successful teams at that time were Ratar and Transport from Podgorica, who represented Montenegro in the finals.[2]
Era of significant successes started at nineties, as teams from Montenegro made big progress in futsal championship of FR Yugoslavia. On season 1993–94, Premijer (Nikšić) won the national title, and that was the very first championship won by one squad from Montenegro.[3] Next year, Premijer was a runner-up of Yugoslav championship. On season 1995–96, another team from Nikšić became Yugoslav champion - Elektroprivreda and next year they finished second. Next big achievement of Montenegrin futsal teams came on season 2000–01. In the national finals played two teams from Montenegro, and the title won CD Shop Mocart (Danilovgrad), who won two games against Nikšić (7-2; 8-4).[4] With that result, CD Shop Mocart became first Montenegrin side who participated in UEFA Futsal Champions League. Next time, CD Shop Mocart became a champion of Serbia and Montenegro on season 2002–03, after two victories in the final against Balestra Nikšić (2:1; 7:3). On season 2004-05, Municipium (Pljevlja) participated in Yugoslav championship finals, but they were defeated against Marbo Belgrade (2-1; 3-10)'.
In 2006, after the Independence referendum, Montenegro split from Serbia. Following that, Montenegrin Futsal League is founded as top-tier national competition. During the first two seasons, in competition dominated Municipium, while the title on season 2008–09 surprisingly won Montenegrostars (Budva). Next year, the title winner was CD Shop Mocart and on season 2010–11 Bajo Pivljanin (Plužine). Next two years, the title-holder was Jedinstvo (Bijelo Polje), whose domination was finished on season 2013–14, finished with the first title for Agama (Podgorica). Next year, another Podgorica side won the title - Titograd. Title for season 2015–16 won Military Futsal Team (Danilovgrad),[5] and Titograd won their second title on season 2016–17.[6] Next season, first title in history won Čelik (Nikšić).[7] Record of the time made Titograd who won their third national title on season 2018–19.[8]
