MFK Dubnica is a Slovak football club, playing in the city of Dubnica nad Váhom.


ZTS Dubnica was founded in 1926 and spent much of its early years playing in the regional Czechoslovakian leagues until 1977 where they were finally promoted to the national first division and finished a respectable 9th in their first season. The team continued in top flight football for 10 years before being relegated in 1987 and it would be at least another 10 years before the team would play at the highest national level again but this time in the independent state of Slovakia. In 1996 Dubnica gained its promotion from the Slovak second division to form part of a newly structured league consisting of one league and 15 other teams. Dubnica would then be relegated the following season, which would set a trend of swinging between the first and second divisions. 2005 saw a turn in fortunes for Dubnica, a 4th place finished earned them a place in Europe for the second time playing in the Intertoto Cup.

The first match saw them come up against Vasas SC of Hungary, the match ended 0-0 in the first leg but the second leg saw Dubnica duely despatch the Hungarian side 2-0 at home. This win next saw the club taken to Turkey to face tough competition in B.B. Ankaraspor but Dubnica upset the home team with a shock 4-0 win and defended this lead well in the second leg only to lose 1-0. Dubnica's next match saw them take on the English team, Newcastle United F.C. but they proved to be too strong and failed to win either legs losing 3-1 and 2-0 respectively.
