Seongnam FC is located in Seongnam, Seoul, South Korea. They play in the highest league in South Korea, K-League. The club was founded in 1989 as Ilhwa Chunma Football Club.

The club was successful from its beginning. Three years after founding, they won their first K-League Cup and won  the title in the K-League three years in a row (in 1993, 1994 and 1995, specifically). But the club was forced to move to a place out of Seoul through the decentralization policy of the K-League. So the club moved to Cheonan, a satellite city of Seoul. The club took a new name: Cheonan Ilhwa Chunma Football Club.

Several unsuccessful seasons followed, so the club went to another satellite city of Seoul, Seongnam. There, the club was renamed again: Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma Football Club. The newly-renamed club repeated history by winning the K-League in 2001, 2002 and 2003.

A disappointing 2004 campaign saw them relinquish their title. The club entered the AFC Champions League, but lost in the finals.

In 2006 they won their last title in the K-League to date. Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma is, at present time, the most successful club in Korean history.

The club reached the finals of the K-League Championship in 2007, but Pohang Steelers won the championship with 4-1.

In the summer of 2008 they played their home matches at Seongnam Stadium, because Tancheon Sports Complex was under construction.

On 13 November 2010 the club won their second AFC Champions League. The club beat the Iranian club Zob Ahan FC. They won with 3-1.
