They started the league in 2007 with Farhad Kazemi and but he was replaced by Amir Ghalenoei halfway through the season where they finished second in the second half of the season league. Parviz Mazloomi was appointed in 2008 as the head coach and the club was promoted to the AFC Champions League for the first time in their history by finishing third in the league. Mes surprisingly progressed to the last 16 and but got knocked out by fellow countrymen Zob Ahan. In that same season the club finished ninth in the league.

Return to Azadegan League[edit]

In the 2013–14 Iran Pro League season, Mes finished bottom of the league and were relegated to the Azadegan League with one matchday left.

However, they lost to Esteghlal Khuzestan to miss the qualification. Riots ensued in the stadium afterwards as Mes fans set fires to the seats. In March 2016 Mes Kerman coach Begovic was replaced with Akbar Misaghian.
