The club was founded as Nykøbing Falster Alliancen (NFA) on 1 January 1994, in a merger between the clubs B.1901 and B. 1921. The club went under the name Lolland Falster Alliancen between 2006 and 2013.[1] On 18 June 2006, their 34 defeat to Lyngby Boldklub in the last game of the season meant that they were relegated to the Danish third division, after having spent 3 years in the second division.[2] However, they spent just one season in this league, and were promoted back to the second division after beating KB 50 on 3 June 2007.[2]

In 2015, Nykøbing FC launched the project Superliga 2020, with a declared goal of promotion to the Danish Superliga by 2020. The project was launched when Danish celebrities, chef Claus Meyer, comedian Mick Øgendahl and former footballer Claus Jensen invested millions in the club and became major shareholders.[3][4]
