The basketball and football club "Šiauliai" (KFK "Šiauliai") was established in Šiauliai in 1994. The club founded a basketball team in 1994 and a football team in 1995. The football team played in Antra Lyga (3rd tier) and had no desire to move up to a higher division. Rather, the club focused its attention on the basketball championship LKL and other leagues. The situation in Šiauliai City changed when FK Kareda Šiauliai was sold in 1999 and moved from Šiauliai to Kaunas. FK Sakalas Šiauliai was dissolved in 2003, and the KFK Šiauliai football team broke with the basketball team as a result.
In the beginning of 2004, a new organization called VšĮ „Šiaulių futbolo klubas“ was established. Soon after, the FK „Šiauliai“ team was founded. Its leaders sought to build a strong, winning team to rise to A Lyga (top tier).
In 2004 FK Šiauliai was promoted to Pirma Lyga (second tier). That year, they won the 2004 Pirma Lyga. They were then promoted to A Lyga and began playing in the elite division in 2005.
When the team took 2nd place in the championship, they became eligible to play at the European level. The 2009–10 UEFA Europa League defeated Wisła Kraków at 7–0. The 2012–13 UEFA Europa League lost to FC Levadia Tallinn (2–2 aggr.)
In 2014, FK Šiauliai became FC Šiauliai.
In 2015 the team faced serious financial problems and did not pay their players proper salaries.
