For the 2014–15 season, the club attained sponsorship from Modic Entertainment and was thus renamed as YFCMD (Yokohama FC Modic). The team also once again moved stadiums to Sham Shui Po Sports Ground.
In summer 2015, Modic Entertainment confirmed they will not extend the sponsorship contract with the club. Metro Gallery confirmed that they will attain the sponsorship. The team was then renamed as Dreams Metro Gallery FC.
On 6 July 2016, the club announced via Facebook that they would not field a team in the 2016–17 season, instead, choosing to voluntarily drop down to the First Division. The South China Morning Post reported that the team was facing financial difficulties after failing to attain sponsorship for the Premier League.
