The club was founded in 1926, from a merger between two local teams. The new team was named UDR (Uzinele și Domeniile Reșița – Reșița Factories and Domains). In the 1930–31 season, it won the Romanian West League, qualifying in the national finals, where it defeated Prahova Ploiești and Societatea Gimnastică Sibiu. In the following season the club finished runners-up, after Bucharest powerhouse Venus.

After World War II and the advent of the Communist regime, professional football was forbidden. UDR was merged again, this time with the local labour union team, under the name Oțelul (Steel) Reșița. After changing its name several times, it settled to Metalul (Metal) Reșița.

The 1950s were a period of slow decline for the team. In 1954, Metalul Reșița was playing in the Romanian Second League (Divizia B), finishing the season on the 7th place. But in the Romanian Cup, the 1954 season brought its second trophy. The Reșița team, made up of steel factory workers, mechanics, electricians and railway workers, met in the Cup some of Romania's finest teams, including five from Divizia A. It defeated, in turn, Știința Timișoara (6th place in Divizia A in the 1954 season) 5–1, Locomotiva Tg. Mureș (10th place) 4–0, Locomotiva Timișoara (4th place) 2–0, and CCA București (2nd place) 1–0. In the final, on December 5, 1954, Metalul Reșița met, in Bucharest, Dinamo București (3rd place in Divizia A). The Reșița team won the game 2–0, with Szeles scoring twice ('30, '40). It was the first time that a team from the Romanian Second League had won the trophy.

During its 87-year history, the club won one championship and one cup and has played for 16 seasons in the Liga I, the last time in the 1999–2000 season.

The club was dissolved in the autumn of 2008 because of the lack of financial support. In the summer of 2009, it was brought back to life, this time with the name of Școlar Reșița, playing in Romania's Third League.

In the summer of 2012, it was renamed again, this time returning to the old name of FCM Reșița.

In the 2012–13 season, it finished third in the series. The objective for the 2013–14 season was initially to promote back to the Liga II after a six-year absence, but in the summer of 2013 Damila Măciuca was moved to Reșița and was renamed as Metalul Reșița, therefore Reșița Municipality chose to support the new team and CSM Școlar Reșița chose to enroll in Liga IV due to lack of funds.[2]
