B36 Tórshavn was officially founded on 28 March 1936 but started to play football matches in 1935. B36 has an archrival, HB Tórshavn, founded in 1904, the first club in Tórshavn.

The rivalry, however, has limits. When B36 Tórshavn published an official book in 1997, they used HB Tórshavn's book as the main source, as their original documents had been lost. When B36 was founded, they battled with rivals HB Tórshavn for the rights to the Gundadalur Stadium, although both teams used the venue, and played a number of derby matches there during that initial season.

B36 Tórshavn had a hard time by getting accepted by the main newspaper in the Faroe Islands, but after half a year B36 Tórshavn had achieved some good results, that resulted in that journalists had no other option but to accept B36 Tórshavn. Today, B36 Tórshavn is one of the biggest football clubs in the Faroe Islands.

Clubs in the Faroe Islands first took part in European competitions in 1992, after the Faroe Islands Football Association became a member of UEFA in 1990. B36 were drawn against Avenir Beggen in the Cup winners Cup Qualifying round in 1992. They went close but didn't make it through to the first round after a 1–0 loss and a 1–1 at home.

In 2005/06 the team reached the second round in the UEFA Cup after defeating ÍBV Vestmannaeyar of Iceland 3–2 on aggregate. In the second round they narrowly lost to Danish Superliga-club FC Midtjylland 1–2 in the away leg and drew 2–2 at home. The team reached the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League in 2006/07 after defeating Birkirkara FC of Malta 5–2 on aggregate and were eliminated in second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, losing both matches to Fenerbahçe 4–0 and 5–0.
