Recent history

After not fielding a senior team since 1940, Hörður sent a men's team to the 4. deild karla in 2014 where it finished 4th in A-group.[3][9] On 1 June 2017, it defeated Snæfell/UDN 14-1 on Olísvöllurinn in Ísafjörður.[10] On 3 June 2018, the team mounted a improbable comeback victory against Hvíti Riddarinn by scoring three goals in the last two minutes of the match, winning 6-5.[11]
