The 2012–13 Slovenian PrvaLiga was the 22nd edition of the Slovenian PrvaLiga since its establishment in 1991. Also known by the abbreviation 1. SNL, PrvaLiga was contested by the top ten clubs in Slovenia, for the title of national champions. The fixture schedule was released on 26 June 2012.[2] The season began on 14 July 2012 and ended on 26 May 2013.[2]

Maribor were the defending champions, having won their 10th league title the previous season. The season featured nine teams from the 2011–12 Slovenian PrvaLiga and one team from the 2011–12 Slovenian Second League, Aluminij, who was promoted directly as the winners of the second division, replacing Nafta. This was the first season for Aluminij in the top division.[3]

Teams[edit]

Mura 05 and Domžale at Fazenarija stadium on 8 November 2012.

A total of ten teams constested the league, including nine from the 2011–12 Slovenian PrvaLiga and one promoted from the 2011–12 Slovenian Second League. Winners of the Slovenian second division Aluminij secured direct promotion as champions of the Slovenian Second League. They replaced Nafta Lendava in the top division, who finished at the bottom of the PrvaLiga table, ending their seven-season tenure in the top division. This was the first season for Aluminij in the Slovenian PrvaLiga. Even though Dob won the relegation play-offs against Triglav Kranj, they decided against competing in the top division because of financial reasons; as a result, Triglav was not relegated and remained in the PrvaLiga for the 2012–13.[3]

Footnotes[edit]

  • A The official figure of 0 attendance on a match between Mura 05 and Koper, during the 34th round, is disputed and presumably wrong. Although the PrvaLiga uses the figure on their official website it can be clearly seen from the official video summary of the match, on the same website, that during the match there were several hundred spectators on the stands.[6] A report from the Slovenian Press Agency uses the figure of 500 spectators for the match.[7]
