The team was known as Union Sportive de Saint-Omer until 2020, when a merger with FC Tatinghem took place, and the current name was taken.[2]

Their best-ever performance in the French Cup saw them reach the last 16 in season 1991–92 before losing 2–4 to AS Monaco at home. In season 2008–09, they knocked SC Amiens (a Ligue 2 side) out of the same competition in the seventh round.[3]

At the end of season 2012–13, a 1–2 home defeat at the hands of Marck saw USSO relegated to the DHR, the seventh tier of French football.
