HistoryEdit

The club was founded on August 24, 2005 as Íþróttafélag FSu (English: FSu Sports Club). In 2012 it changed its name to Körfuknattleiksfélag FSu (English: FSu Basket) and on April 5, 2018, the club changed its name again to Körfuknattleiksfélag Selfoss (English: Selfoss Basketball Club), or Selfoss-Karfa (English: Selfoss-Basket) for short.[4]

Men's basketballEdit

In 2008, FSu gained promotion to the Úrvalsdeild karla after beating Valur in the 1. deild karla promotion playoffs.[5] It played in the Úrvalsdeild until 2010, when it was relegated back to 1. deild.[6] In 2015, FSu beat Hamar in the promotion playoffs and gained promotion to the Úrvalsdeild karla for the second time in its history.[7] During the 2015–16 Úrvalsdeild karla season they posted a 3-19 record, finishing second-to-last in the league and were relegated back to 1. deild.[8] In February 2021, the team made an affiliation deal with Real Betis.[9]
