Euran Pallo was established in 1954 by taking over the football section of the existing Euran Raiku sports club.
EuPa spent many seasons in the lower divisions of the Finnish football league in their early history. However the club's fortunes changed dramatically at the end of the 1990 season when EuPa gained promotion to the Kakkonen (Second Division) for the first time. There followed the best period in the club's history with 10 consecutive seasons in the third tier of Finnish football, the Kakkonen (Second Division) from 1991 to 2000. The club then dropped back into the Kolmonen (Third Division) in 2001 where they have stayed for the last decade with the exception of a short-lived season in the Kakkonen in 2004. It is not proving easy for EuPa to regain their previous status as they have finished in second place in 4 of the last 5 seasons.
EuPa play their home matches at the "Euran Wembley" adjacent to the artificial turf pitch at the OP-Areena. The home attendance record for a EuPa match is 1,452 spectators who attended a Round 7 Finnish Cup match against RoPS in 1990.
