Real Sportive were promoted to the Ghana Premier League in 2004 and in their inaugural season ended Hearts of Oak's 46-game unbeaten streak.[1] They followed up their record-breaking streak in 2005 robbing Asante Kotoko of an unbeaten streak.[2]

South African Momo Medic was appointed their coach in 2007.[3]

Sportive were relegated from the Premier League in 2008 after being deducted points for fielding an ineligible player before the last round of matches.[4] Sportive played the 2009 season in Division One Zone 3B following their relegation but sold their Division One spot to Emirates FC after the season ended.[5][6][7]
