Football is by far the most popular sport in The Faroe Islands. Eiði being no exception.

The original football club was established on feburary 23rd in 1913, making it the oldest football club on the island of Eysturoy. The first few years were spent on building a football pitch which was completed in 1916 and the first game was played against players from the village of Fuglafjørður. It was under rather unusual circumstances however, since the dimensions of the pitch only allowed for a 9 a-side game.
