The club has a long-standing rivalry with Taipower, as both are the most successful and most popular clubs in the country. In recent years, Leopard Cat has proved to be the dominant force on the island by winning the Taiwan Football Premier League three times in a row.[6] In 2006 AFC President's Cup,[7] Tatung reached the semifinals.[8] In 2022, they announced a rebranding, following the consequences of Tatung Company's refusal from supporting the Tatung FC operations. They changed their name from Tatung FC to Leopard Cat, changed their crest, and their official colours, to avoid exclusion, or relegation of the Taiwan Football Premier League. After sufficient funds were raised to enable the team to play the next season in the TFPL, a realization of an election of supervisors and directors, and a general meeting successfully completed, Miao Boya was named the club's chairman.
