HistoryEdit

After two clubs of Suez city were relegated to the Egyptian Second Division (the first was Ittihad Suez club in season 1965/1966 and the second was Suez El-Riyadi club in season 1966/1967) the two clubs joined to found Suez Montakhab Club in 1967.

  • Ittihad Suez club played in the Egyptian Premier League for ten seasons starting from season 1955/1956.
  • Suez El-Riyadi club played in the Egyptian Premier League for five seasons starting from season 1957/1958 and reached the final of the Egypt Cup in season 1964/1965 but lost the final against Tersana 4/1.
  • Suez Montakhab played in the Egyptian Premier League for fifteen seasons starting from season 1974/1975 and reached the final of the Egypt Cup in season 1989/1990 but lost the final against Al-Mokawloon Al-Arab 2/1 and won fourth place in the League Cup in season 1999/2000 when Suez Montakhab beat Ma'aden 2/1.
