The club was founded in 1989 and currently plays in Ligue 2, the second division of French football, after achieving promotion from the Championnat National. They previously won promotion from the Division d'Honneur in the 2009–10 season. The club's emblem and kits take a heavy influence from Italian club Internazionale.
On 1 February 2017, Chambly achieved a club milestone by drawing with French top-flight outfit A.S. Monaco 3–3 during regulation time in a Coupe de la ligue match, before eventually losing 4–5 in extra time. On 1 March 2018, Chambly defeated Strasbourg 1–0 to reach the semi-finals of the Coupe de France for the first time ever. However, the club suffered a personal tragedy as Walter Luzi, the club's founder, died in hospital on the same day.
On 19 April 2019, the club achieved promotion to Ligue 2 for the first time in its history. Due to the promotion, the club will play its league matches in the 2019–20 Ligue 2 season at two venues, fifteen (15) matches at Stade Pierre Brisson and four (4) at Stade Sébastien Charléty, as the Stade des Marais did not meet the standards for Ligue 2 football. Stade des Marais is being upgraded to Ligue 2 standards, with a capacity of 3,000, during the 2019–20 season.
