The club was founded in 2010 as Sumgayit FK. In May 2011, the team secured their promotion to Azerbaijan Premier League after getting wildcard place instead of defunct Absheron.[2] After securing promotion to the Premier League, the club based most of their squad on players from Azerbaijan's U-19 and U-17 players.[3] In January 2012, the club announced that its old name was being restored.[4]

During 2012–13 season, Sumgayit narrowly avoided relegation to the First Division by finishing 10th in the league.
