The club was founded as Voldens TF in 1899 as a gymnastics club. Other sports were added later, including association football in 1916. The name was changed to Volda TI in 1945.[1] In 1998, the club was organized as an alliance sports team, which had two overarching legal entities: Football and general sports (Allidrett). It currently has sections for association football, alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, swimming, frisbee-golf and children's athletics.[2]

The handball branch of the club in 2007 split from the Alliance and formed the Volda Handballclub.[3]

As of 2021, the men's football team will play in the 3. divisjon, the fourth tier of the Norwegian football league system; the squad had been promoted to compete in the 2020 3. divisjon season, but the season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Norway. The club had a long stint in the 2. divisjon before being relegated after the 1999 season.[4] They briefly returned to the 2. divisjon for the 2004 season, after winning promotion in the 2003 3. divisjon playoffs[5] but were relegated to 3. divisjon for the 2005 season.
