FC Suðuroy is a Faroese Football club, which was founded in January 2010 and consists currently of the former clubs VB Vágur (founded in 1905) and SÍ Sumba (founded in 1949), which merged in 2005 to form VB/Sumba. FC Suðuroy has invited the other two football clubs from Suðuroy, TB Tvøroyri and Royn from Hvalba to join the new football club, but until now those two football clubs from the northern part of the island Suðuroy have not accepted to merge with FC Suðuroy. FC Suðuroy's first team in the men's championship competes in the Vodafonedeildin in 2012. The first team plays their home games at the Vesturi á Eiðinum Stadium in Vágur. Other teams play their home games at either Vesturi á Eiðinum Stadium in Vágur or at the Krossi Stadium in Sumba.

Effodeildin - Faroe Islands Premier League

VB/Sumba played in 1. deild (1. division, which is the second tier) in 2009 and won the division. FC Suðuroy therefore played their first season in the Faroe Islands Premier League, which was called Vodafonedeildin from 2009-2011. FC Suðuroy played their first league match on 1 April 2010 against the champions HB Tórshavn. The result was 4-4.[1] FC Suðuroy didn't make it in Vodafonedeildin, they were relegated and played in 1. deild in 2011. They won the division with 70 points[2] and were promoted to Effodeildin along with TB Tvøroyri, which is a club from the same island, Suðuroy.
