The club was formed in February 1994 but was previously the football section of the multi-sport club IF Friska Viljor. From 1995 to 1998 the new club progressed through the league system from Division 6 to Division 2. In 2003 the club won Division 2 Norrland and then participated in the promotion play-offs. They won 4–3 away to Väsby IK FK and then lost 2–3 at home but were promoted to the Superettan on away goals. Second tier football in the Superettan in 2004 proved a disappointment as Friska Viljor finished in last place and were relegated.
In subsequent years Friska Viljor FC has participated in the middle divisions of the Swedish football league system. The club currently plays in Division 3 Mellersta Norrland which is the fifth tier of Swedish football. They play their home matches at the Skyttis IP in Örnsköldsvik. Since 2004 the club has used an artificial turf surface.
Friska Viljor FC are affiliated to the Ångermanlands Fotbollförbund.
