The club was founded in 1965 as Körfuknattleiksfélag Ísafjarðar (KFÍ). In 1969, KFÍ won the Vesturland's group and was slated to face Þór Akureyri, which won the Norðurland's group, in a game for the national championship. KFÍ forfeited the game as they could not field a team at the date of the game. The team participated in the top-tier Úrvalsdeild kvenna from 1999 to 2002, advancing to the semi-finals in the Úrvalsdeild playoffs in 2001. It made it into the final four of the Icelandic Cup in 2000 and 2001. In 2016 KFÍ merged into Íþróttafélagið Vestri and became its basketball sub-division.
