The team was one of the oldest in Sweden, as it was founded on May 9, 1939. In 1993 the team promoted to the Basketligan and was named the Sundsvall Dragons.

In 2008, 6-time NBA champion and 7-time All-Star Scottie Pippen played for the team. Pippen, at age 41, played one game for Sundsvall in which he recorded 21 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists. Pippen was paid $66,000 to play in the game against Akropal.[1]
