Sillamäe Kalev was founded in 1957 and competed in the Estonian SSR Football Championship. In 1992, the club became one of the founding members of the Meistriliiga. Sillamäe Kalev was relegated after the 1993–94 season.

In 2008, the club returned to the Meistriliiga after a lengthy spell in lower divisions. Sillamäe Kalev finished the 2009 Meistriliiga season as runners-up with 76 points behind Levadia and qualified to the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League qualifiers. Sillamäe Kalev faced off Dinamo Minsk in the second qualifying round, losing 1–10 on aggregate. Sillamäe Kalev returned to top three in 2013, when the club placed third. The club finished the 2014 Meistriliiga season as runners-up, while Yevgeni Kabaev won the goal scoring title with 36 goals.
