Ulsan were founded in 1983 as Hyundai Football Club, with Incheon and Gyeonggi as their “franchise” areas.

They entered the K-League in 1984, finishing in third place in their debut season. In 1986 the club extended their “franchise” to also include Gangwon, with the club opting to base themselves solely in Gangwon the following year. The stay was short lived, with the club again on the move in the early 1990′s, this time to Ulsan where they were renamed Ulsan Hyundai.

Success followed not long after with the club winning the K-League title in 1996, but afterwards the club would enter a dry-spell where they found success hard to come by.

They finished runner-up in 2002 and 2003 and in 2005 they qualified for the Championship playoff, defeating Incheon United 6-1 in the final to claim their second K-League title.
