The club have won numerous major titles in handball, both men's and women's.
The association was founded in 1960. The men's division played in 1997 in the first Icelandic League (then Landsbankadeild) and managed the 2006 promotion to the second highest Icelandic league. In 2008 men's reached the summit and thus to play in Úrvalsdeild since 2009.
The club gained worldwide fame when their elaborate goal celebrations, including highly choreographed depictions of landing a fish, diving, a human toilet, a human bicycle, and a Rambo shooting spree, were published widely across the Internet and football television shows.
In the 2014–15 Europa League, they reached the play-off rounds after beating Scottish club Motherwell and Polish team Lech Poznań, before Italian giants Inter Milan denied them a place in the group stages.
