Current season

Founded in 2006, the club currently plays in the National League. In 2011, they reached the National league playoffs, as well as beating local K-League side Gyeongnam FC in the FA Cup.[1] Their first trophy came in 2009, winning the National Sports Festival winners. They won the tournament again in 2013 retaining it in 2014 with victory on the island of Jeju, the first time a team has done this.[2] With the National League Cup, which was won in 2010, that makes an impressive four trophies in only a 9-year history, something their city neighbours, I-Park, can only look upon with envy.

The club's biggest rivals are Changwon City, with whom they contest the Gyeongsangnam-do derby twice a year in what are always fiercely fought affairs. Other rivals include K-League team, Busan I-Park, who are largely seen as the city's pretenders following a move from the Gudeok Stadium to the more recently built Asiad Stadium, resulting in Busan Transportation Corporation taking on the nickname, the Real Busan FC. Lastly, they have a friendly rivalry with Daejeon Korail, whom they play against each season in what has been dubbed the Lokomotiv derby.
