SIF reached the semi finals of the Norwegian Football Cup in 1912, 1914, 1929 and 1930. Its latest stint in the First Division, the second tier of the Norwegian football league system, was in 2009. The club is currently playing in 5. divisjon, the sixth tier of Norwegian football.
The club was founded 17 September 1905. They were the dominating club in Stavanger up until the 1930s, and reached the semi-finals of the Norwegian Football Cup in 1912, 1914, 1929 and 1930. One of the club's profiles from that period, Sverre Berg-Johannesen, was the first player from Rogaland to be capped for the Norway national football team.
After World War Two, Viking FK took over as the dominating football club in Stavanger. SIF went on to play in lower divisions, and the club was also passed by FK Vidar (another club from Stavanger) in terms of league position and achievements in the 1980s.
With Roger Nilsen as manager, SIF was promoted to 2. divisjon in 2006. On 25 October 2008, SIF secured promotion to 1. divisjon for the 2009 season after winning their group in 2. divisjon, but were relegated back to 2. divisjon for the 2010 season. They were promptly relegated again, to 3. divisjon in 2010.
