The history of the Kolkata based club is a fascinating story of struggle, determined efforts and success. Established in 1927, the club, then known as the Everready Association, was languishing in the fifth division of the Kolkata Football League (KFL) when a group of youngsters took over the management in 1994.
In 1996, the club was promoted to the fourth division and there was no looking back. By 2002, the team reached the Super Division of KFL and established themselves as the fourth biggest force in the eastern metropolis after three traditional giants, Mohun Bagan, East Bengal and Mohammedan Sporting.
Thereafter, United Sports set their goal to make the premier division of the I-League. After three unsuccessful attempts, United Sports made the grade in 2008 and played with distinction. Now they are also making all out efforts to achieve the criteria of Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club licensing system.
United Sports is a club which have an extraordinary group of dedicated officials, who work extremely hard to take the club to a position of strength. With moderate resources, the club managed to win the Airlines Cup and Kalinga Cup in 2003 and 2004, respectively and even reached the final of the IFA Shield in 2005. The same year they also won the Sikkim Governor's Cup.
