In 1978, two Sông Bé teams competed in the National Division A, with Sông Bé II winning the regional championship. Afterward, the two sides were merged into one club under head coach Nguyen Kim Phung.
In 1994, Sông Bé won its first ever national title, the Vietnamese National Cup. One year later, however, they were relegated from the Vietnamese National First Division (the highest competition in Vietnam at that time) as punishment by the VFF after Sông Bé and 3 other clubs refused to play 2 relegation play-off matches.
In 1996, Sông Bé and Cao Su Binh Long merged into one club which achieved promotion to the top competition that same year.
In 1998, Bình Dương was relegated from the First Division and suffered for some years from a lack of development.
In 2002, Bình Dương Football Joint-stock Company was founded when Bình Dương FC was taken over by Bình Dương Television Broadcaster (BTV) and Becamex IDC, the strongest multi-industry economy corporation in Bình Dương. The financial backing from Becamex IDC was a huge boost for the club.
In 2003, Becamex Bình Dương won promotion to the V.League, marking the emergence of the new football powerhouse in Vietnam. During this time, the club earned the nickname Chelsea of Vietnam for its strong financial backing.
Gò Đậu Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Thủ Dầu Một. It is currently used primarily for football matches and is the home stadium of Becamex Bình Dương. The stadium holds 18,250 people.
