HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 2005, after the previous club of the city, Hapoel Or Yehuda (which in its prime finished runners-up in Liga Alef South division), dissolved at the end of the 2004–05 season while playing in Liga Bet.[1][2]

F.C. Ironi Or Yehuda started the 2005–06 season in Liga Gimel Tel Aviv division, where they finished runners-up, one point behind champions, Shikun Vatikim Ramat Gan.[3] In the following season, the club won the Tel Aviv division,[4] and were promoted to Liga Bet, where they play since. The club's best placing to date came at the 2011–12 season, when they finished runners-up in Liga Bet South A division.

In 2019, the team's goalkeeper, Isaak Hayik, aged 73, broke the Guinness record for oldest player in a league match.[5]
