The beginnings of football in Pezinok go back to 1913, when this world-famous game was brought by students from Bratislava. Firstly, the game was played with one goal, so-called “frajčula“ and the second goal was added later. The first official football match took place in Pezinok in 1919. It was organized by the crew of the Czechoslovak air unit stationed in the city. Its members played regularly at Rozálka field airport. Local enthusiasts, associated with Aladár Takács and Korineks brothers, all decided to establish a football club in 1921. After the initial preparatory steps (money collection for support, purchase of kits and balls), the Pezinský športový club (PŠC Pezinok) was founded on 29-th of August 29, 1921 at a meeting in the inn "U zeleného stromu". Ľudovít Korínek became its first chairman.
In the green-and-white jerseys inspired by Budapest's Ferencváros - allegedly the former club of Aladár Takács, with the monogram of PŠC Pezinok, they played the first friendly matches, tournaments, and also participated in championship competitions, which the club entered in 1923 (other sources states it happened in 1927). The Green-and-whites won the competition of II. class in the first year and were gradually promoted to the I.B class.
In 1923, the club formed an U19 team. Its members also included Eugen Suchoň, a famous native of Pezinok, a future composer and national artist. As a goalkeeper, he played for Pezinok until 1929.
Football in Pezinok during 1st Czechoslovakia (1927 – 1938)
The development of football in the city continued, even at the international level. In 1930, PŠC Pezinok played its first international match against the Austrian team SC Carnuntum Wiena with the score 1:3 in favour of the opponent.
Pezinok did much better in the domestic competition. In the last round of the 1930/31 season, they defeated ŠK Bratislava after a result of 3:1 and were promoted to the I.A class. In 1931, another important moment in the history of the club took place - the Rapid Pezinok club, based in Pezinok and registered with the Hungarian Football Association, officially merged with the PŠC, while the club's name remained the PŠC Pezinok.
In 1933, the Green-and-whites were promoted to the highest competition of the West Slovakian county - to the 1.A class (Pezinok remained in the county competition until liberation). In the same year, the club played its third international match, this time against the Hungarian BAK TK Budapest, with a loss of 0:3. Home matches took place on the so-called “Pažiť“. The strong support of the fans is evidenced by visits to home matches of approximately 1,000 spectators. Over time, the performance stagnated, the senior team went down to the district competitions and failed to follow up on the previous great performances. The club believed in an early change, but the start of World War II did not bode well for the near future of football.
The war years (1939 – 1945)
During the Second World War, not only Pezinok, but also Slovak football in general experienced a partial decline in quality. Many promising footballers had to perform military duties in the crew or even at the front. After the establishment of the Slovak state, there was also a radical reorganization of Slovak football. The Slovak League became the highest competition in Slovakia. The lower competitions were divided into counties: Bratislava, Žilina, Zvolen and Prešov, and subsequently to other levels. If lower competitions were played at the beginning of 1939, after the attack on Poland, they were definitely reduced, as the men left for the battlefield. At this time, PŠC Pezinok was in lower league competitions, because after the outbreak of war against Poland and subsequently against the USSR, many Pezinok footballers left at the front.
After the war, the footballers returned. They had the desire and determination to achieve better results than in recent years. This is also indicated by the fact that the Green-and-whites became the autumn champions of the competition in the 1945/46 season.
Post-war years (1946 – 1961)
In the 1945/46 season, Pezinok was promoted to the West division of the Slovak Football Association, in today's world to the 3rd Slovak League. Already in the 1947/48 season, they became the autumn champions of the division, which aroused the interest of the fans from the whole city. In the late 1940s, PŠC fought its way into the SNL (Slovak National League). Its football base was so wide that they were able to produce quality players and even future representatives of the Czechoslovak Republic.
In the early 1950s, after the departure of several quality players and the reorganization of competitions, football in Pezinok experienced a deep decline. The club struggled with many difficulties and was relegated to district competitions. In a short period, the club changed its name three times. Firstly, to the name of Sokol Tehelne Pezinok, in 1953 to Tatran Pezinok and finally in 1956, the club was named Slovan NV Pezinok. Under the new name, the Green-and-whites won the 1.A class in 1956 and were promoted to the regional competition. The coach of the team was Karol Šefčík. Since 1959, the player-coach role has been represented by national team player of two countries, Bulgaria and Czechoslovakia, the legendary Bozhin Laskov. Together with Karol Šefčík, they both are the most famous personalities based in Pezinok in the post-war years.
Swing period (1962 – 1990)
In the 1960s and 1970s, the senior team, under the new name Lokomotíva Pezinok, was mainly in the competitions of the West Slovakian region, and after reorganizations in the divisional competition. At the beginning of 1961, Bozhin Laskov was replaced by old-new coach Karol Šefčík, who managed to stay with the team in the division until 1967. After that successful era, was replaced by relegations into regional competitions and a decade of futile attempts to return to the division. The club had two senior teams, but also an excellent stadium, which hosted several mutual matches between Pezinok and the Czechoslovak national football team.
In 1979, the Green-and-whites, under the leadership of coach Vladimír Korček, managed to advance to the division (2nd Slovak National League). Time spent in the division was accompanied by alternating successes, as during the next few years until 1987, Pezinok was promoted a total of four times and relegated four times, as well. In addition, they were not successful even in lower competitions, as they were relegated to I.A class. In 1984, there was an organizational change in the form of separation from Lokomotíva and the subsequent establishment of Stavbár Pezinok.
At the turn of the millennium (1991 – 2005)
In 1991, a new committee led by František Slezák decided to return to the historical name of the club - PŠC Pezinok. Between 1991 and 2000, Pezinok was playing at the level of the third, fourth and fifth highest leagues. Initially, they played matches with opponents from “Záhorie“ (area located to the north from Malé Karpaty mountain) and “Žitný ostrov“ (area located in the south of Slovakia). Later, the competitions were reorganized within the Bratislava Football Association, and a new 4th league was created, in which PŠC Pezinok also operated. The Green-and-whites bet on a young team that was better season by season, which culminated in the promotion to the 3rd Bratislava League. Between 1994 and 1997, the team stabilized and played football, which was attended by about 800 spectators.
At the beginning of the third millennium, the senior team alternated between better seasons and worse ones. The worse were identical in the bad autumn parts of season and excellent spring parts. The team saved the competition at the last minute. The better seasons were in the spirit of stable performances throughout the season with the final place in the middle of the table.
Promotions and relegations (2006 – 2016)
After the reorganization of the football competitions, Pezinok was playing in the third league, but in the hierarchy, it represented the fourth highest competition. In the 2006/07 season, the well-composed squad and coach Peter Kučerka managed to win promotion to the 2nd Slovak league. Hard newcomer times culminated into decline and many coaching exchanges. The re-entry came in the 2009/10 season. This time, Pezinok managed to maintain the competition for the next two years. The successful period was also underlined by the Slovak Cup match against ŠK Slovan Bratislava in the autumn of 2011, in which the best club in Slovakia won only 0:1.
In the following period, football in Pezinok declined greatly. As a result of non-football disputes, the club lost partners, supporters and the senior team was relegated to the 5th highest competition. At that moment, the attention was focused on talented teenagers, mostly with the year of birth 1995. The inexperienced, but determined team was taken over by coach Daniel Federl, who started a beautiful football story with the young offspring. In its first season, the team took 11th place, the following year 3rd place. The team also benefited from the reorganization of competitions, when the 4th league (5th highest) became the fourth highest competition. The quality performances of the offspring with a green-and-white heart resulted in absolute dominance in the 2014/15 season, when they deservedly became the champions of the 4th league. The return to the regional elite was also accompanied by the Slovak Cup duel against the then Slovak champion AS Trenčín, who were also active in the preliminary rounds of the UEFA Champions League at that time. Even a clear loss left no scars on the team and the players quickly switched to the league competition, in which they took 8th place.
New era (2017 – present)
The senior A-team managed to stabilize in the highest regional competition. Pezinok faced the most attractive opponent in September 2019, when they hosted the first league team FK Senica in the Slovak Cup. Although the Green-and-whites lost, they left a good impression and were bravely fighting against the favorite.
The coach of the A-team is Daniel Federl, who has been in charge for 8 years with half-year breaks in 2017 and 2019. He can also rely on cooperation with the newly formed senior B-team, which was formed at the beginning of the 2020/21 season. The creation of the B-team is related to the joining of forces with the GFC Grinava football club. The "B" team became the champions of the 6th league in the premiere season and as a rookie immediately advanced to the higher competition.
The new era of Pezinok football was marked by the coronavirus pandemic with restrictions in training process and matches. The 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons did not go as planned and only half of the matches were played.
In August 2021, the club celebrated the 100th anniversary of its founding. PŠC Pezinok organized an exhibition of historical materials and published the first publication about the club's century-long history. Due to anti-pandemic restrictions, the club organized a sport and cultural event in 2022, which was an important milestone in the club's history. The 100th anniversary celebrations were the biggest football event in recent decades in Pezinok.
