Danish Superliga history
It was in the year 1991 that the Danish Superliga was initially founded, replacing the Danish 1st Division as the highest football league in Denmark.
Initially, there were just 10 teams that participated in the Danish Superliga. For a couple of years, there was a split in the season and the ten teams would play each other twice in the first half of the tournament. In the following season, the bottom two teams would be cut off and the remaining eight teams would once again play each other twice.
It was during the 1995-96 season that the number of teams in the Danish Superliga was increased to 12. This resulted in the Superliga teams playing each other a total of three times in a given season. For the first edition of this new structure, Coca-Cola became the main sponsor of the league, resulting in the league being named Coca-Cola Ligaen.
Over the years, there have been a number of main sponsors for the Danish Superliga. They include Faxe Kondi, Alka, and 3F amongst others. Also, the league attracts millions of football bettors from around the world, all thanks to its rich history and the involvement of several popular footballers.
Danish Superliga format
Between 1996 and 2016, there were a total of 12 teams taking part in the Danish Superliga, with each team playing one another a total of three times in a single season. The teams that were in the last two spots by the end of the season were then dropped down to the Danish 1st Division (the second tier of football in Denmark).
The dropping of the bottom two Superliga teams resulted in the two leading Danish 1st Division clubs confirming their spot in Danish Superliga. During this era, each Superliga team played every other team at least once at home, once away, and once more either at home or away.
During the 2016-17 season, the number of teams taking part in the Danish Superliga was increased to 14. This was done by relegating only a single team from the Danish Superliga and promoting the top three teams from the Danish 1st Division.
Following the 2019-20 season, the number of teams in the Danish Superliga was again reduced from 14 to 12. Now, each team in the league plays every other team once at home and once away. At the end of the regular season, six teams enter a championship play-off, where all of them play each other twice more.
According to the current format, the team that manages to finish at the top after the championship play-off is the Danish Superliga winner and enters the UEFA Champions League Competition in the second qualifying round. Here, the second team in the champions list enters the Europa League in the first qualifying round.

Top teams in Danish Superliga
As the Danish Superliga has been around for decades now, it’s no surprise that the league is home to several historic clubs. Also, there are some new additions that have risen to prominence in the past few years. Below is a detailed overview of Denmark’s top Superliga teams:
Founded in 1992, FC Copenhagen is a professional Danish football club that was formed through the merger of Kjøbenhavns Boldklub and Boldklubben 1903.
FC Copenhagen is a highly successful Danish club that has won 13 Danish Football Championships and 8 Danish Cups. Also, it has reached the group stage of the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League more times than any other Danish Club.
FC Copenhagen is managed by former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Stale Solbakken, and the club plays its home matches at the Parken Stadium. Since its establishment, FC Copenhagen has developed a fierce rivalry with Brøndby IF, and the matches between the two experience lots of football betting action.
Based in Herning and Ikast in the midwestern part of Jutland, FC Midtjylland is another professional Danish football club that competes in the Danish Superliga.
FC Midtjylland was formed in 1999 through the merger of Ikast FS and Herning Fremad. Being a relatively new force in the Danish top tier, FC Midtjylland has still managed to become one of the most talked-about Superliga teams.
FC Midtjylland claimed their first Superliga title in 2014/15 by defeating FC Copenhagen. 2017/18 was another year when FC Midtjylland went on to claim their second Superliga title.
Founded in 1964 as a merger between two local clubs, Brondby IF is one of the oldest football clubs in Denmark. Brondby IF is based in Brøndbyvester, Capital Region of Denmark, and is one of the most successful clubs in Superliga history.
To date, Brondby IF has won 11 Danish Championships and they also have 7 Danish Cups to their name. Brondby IF’s most successful period was between 1985 and 2005 when they won ten league titles in 20 years. While Brondby IF has been unable to deliver exceptional performances in the last few years, they still attract some of the best football odds.
