(North) Macedonia - List of Champions


See partial list of final tables 1945-1992 See list of final tables 1992-1998


Before World War II, the Macedonian title was decided in a regional league (Skopje podsavez) mostly featuring Skopje clubs, whose winners gained access to national playoffs or promotion tournaments to the national league which was held occasionally. During the second world war, the territory was incorporated in Bulgaria for a few years. After the war, and until the break-up of Yugoslavia, the Macedonian championship was played for in a regional league without the presence of the clubs representing the republic at the national level (in particular Vardar Skopje).

Note that the country was renamed North Macedonia on 12 Feb 2019.
