1. deild karla (English: Men's 1. Division) or D1 is the second-tier basketball competition among clubs in Iceland. It is organized by the Icelandic Basketball Federation (Icelandic: Körfuknattleikssamband Íslands - KKÍ). The season consists of a home-and-away schedule of 18 games, followed by a four-team playoff round. Both semifinals and finals series are best-of-three. The top team from the regular-season phase and the four-team playoff round winner are promoted to the Úrvalsdeild karla. The bottom club is relegated, and replaced by the four-team playoff round winner of the third-tier 2. deild karla (English: 2. Division).

History[edit]

Creation[edit]

The First Division (Icelandic: 1. deild karla) was founded in 1964. Up until 1978 it was known as Second Division (Icelandic: 2. deild karla).

ÍS and ÍKF's dominance[edit]

For the first years, from its foundation in 1964 until the 1970–71 season, the First Division was led by the ÍS (with 3 wins) and ÍKF (with 2 wins).

Fram Reykjavík's leadership[edit]

Some years later, from the 1974–75 season, the Fram Reykjavík started their leadership on the First Division and their series of wins, that ended in the 1985-86 season when they won their fourth title.

Danny Shouse[edit]

In 1979, Danny Shouse joined Ármann and took the league by storm. On December 1, 1979, Shouse scored 100 points against Skallagrímur, setting the Icelandic single game scoring record.[1][2] In January 1980 he scored 76 points in an overtime loss against Grindavík [3] and in February he broke the 70 point barrier again, scoring 72 points against Þór Akureyri.[4] His scoring prowess helped Ármann win Division I and achieve promotion to the Úrvalsdeild karla.[2] Even though Shouse played in the nations tier 2 league during his first season, he was widely regarded as one of the best players in the country.[5][6]

The double fall of ÍR[edit]

After their golden years, in which they won 15 Úrvalsdeild karla titles in less than 25 years, the ÍR was relegated to the First Division. In the 1986-87 season they won for their first time the First Division and came back to the Úrvalsdeild karla. Afterwards, the ÍR was relegated again to the First Division. In the 1999-00 season they won their second First Division title and came back to the Úrvalsdeild karla.

Modern era[edit]

In the 2006-07 season, Þór Akureyri won their fifth title. In the following season, the 2007-08 season, also the Breiðablik won their fifth title, becoming the most successful franchise together with the Þór Akureyri. In the 2011–12 season, the KFÍ won their fourth title.[7]

Teams[edit]

The First Division originated in 1964 and, currently, consists of 8 teams. Þór Akureyri have won the most championships with 6 First Division wins.
