Royal Police camped at Hong Kong in late December 2014 and the club also participated and won the 2015 People of Maldives Invitational Cup held in Maldives in January 2015.[5]

However, with several problems came up from the squad, they finished the league at the 6th position in the first year after promotion in 2014. The Malian striker, Dramane Traore had been the main man scoring the goals for The Cops in 2015 season.
