FK Senica[1] is a Slovak football team, based in the town of Senica. The club was founded in 1921.

Transfer from 4th League to Superliga

Although FK Senica played in the 4th Slovak football league for season 2008/2009, the next season 2009/2010 they played in the top division after merging with Inter Bratislava who had just won promotion to the Corgoň Liga. Initially the club was forced to retain the name Inter Bratislava in the top division but after many discussions the Executive Committee of the Slovak Football Association endorsed the name FK Senica. Dušan Vrťo is the Sporting Director of FK Senica, and has offered Dundee FC to be the club's scout in Slovakia.[2]
