HistoryEdit

IMT was champion of Suriname 10 times, winning every year between 2006-07 and 2018–19 except for 2007–08, 2011–12 and 2017-18.

IMT has participated in the CFU Club Championship nine times, most recently in 2017 when they were eliminated in the first round, finishing runners-up in their group. The club kit manufacturer is Jako.

The club made international headlines in September 2021, when Surinamese Vice President, and club owner, then 60-year old, Ronnie Brunswijk, inserted himself into a 2021 CONCACAF League match against Honduran outfit, Olimpia, playing 54 minutes.[1][2] Olimpia won the match 6–0.[3] Following the match, video leaked online that showed Brunswijk paying Olimpia players after the match, suspecting pundits that Brunswijk engaged in match fixing. On 22 September 2021, CONCACAF launched a formal investigation,[4] and on 25 September 2021 both Inter Moengotapoe and Olimpia were disqualified from the tournament, with Brunswijk being banned from playing in CONCACAF competitions for three years.[5]
