History
• Formed in 1924 out of a merger between Esbjerg Boldklub af 1898 and Esbjerg Amatørklub af 1911, the club failed to establish itself at the top end of the Danish game until winning the second division in 1949.

• Came close to their first silverware in 1956, only to finish runners-up in the Danish first division, but a golden period was to follow in the early 1960s. Esbjerg won four Danish titles in the five seasons from 1961 to 1965, and captured the Danish Cup in 1964. Success did not follow in Europe, with the club failing to navigate past the first round of any continental competition during the decade.

• The glory years came to an end with relegation in 1969, and 1972 saw the club fall into the third division. Within seven years, however, they had climbed through the divisions once again and clinched the Danish championship for a fifth time in 1979, three years after their second Danish Cup triumph.

• The quality could not be sustained, however, and by 1991 Esbjerg were back in the third tier of Danish football. They spent only two years during the 1990s in the elite, in fact, both seasons ending with relegation, and although they stabilised in the top division after promotion in 2000/2001, they also spent the 2011/12 campaign in the second tier.

• Lost narrowly in the Danish Cup final to Randers FC in 2006 and Brøndby IF in 2008, but lifted the trophy for the first time in 37 years when they defeated Randers 1-0 in 2013. Made the knockout stage of the UEFA Europa League in 2013/14, their best performance in Europe.
