History[edit]

Bayamón FC played in the Puerto Rico Major League Soccer from 1999 to 2005.

Bayamón FC played in the first game of the 2009 Puerto Rico Soccer League season against defending champions Sevilla FC, in which Sevilla FC won 1:0. Bayamón then defeated Humacao Tornados 8-1 and Guaynabo Fluminense 4:1. Finishing second in the league table, BFC captured the playoff championship with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Atléticos de San Juan.

The team did not participate in the Puerto Rico Soccer League for the 2010 and 2011 seasons due to the league's instability. PRSL eventually folded after the 2011 Supercopa tournament.

International performance[edit]

In March 2010, Bayamón FC debuted in the Caribbean Football Union's 2010 CFU Club Championship, qualifier for the 2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League. The club, along Saint Vincent Motor Systems 3 of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, had already classified to the second round due to Elite SC's retirement and Defense Force's group change, playing two games to determine the group's winner. The first game was originally scheduled for 25 March 2010, but Systems 3's personnel only arrived partially, forcing the club to replace the date with an exhibition game against the Puerto Rico Islanders, dropping the game 0:1. On 27 March 2010, both teams began the series at Juan Ramón Loubriel Stadium, with Bayamón FC defeating Systems 3 by a score of 4:1. Both teams tied 2:2 in the second game, keeping the global score in favor of the local team, which clinched the group's first place.
