Odense BK was founded on July 12, 1887 as the Odense Cricket Club, to which two years later a football and tennis division were added and the club’s name was changed to Odense Boldklub.
Odense BK became Danish champion three times, in 1977, 1982 and 1989, and the club won the cup five times, the last time in 2007. From 1991, OB has been playing continuously at the highest Danish level, the Superligaen.
From the 1984/85 season, the club has been represented in all European competitions, a total of 22 times. For the last time in the 2011/12 season, when Odense BK was eliminated by Villarreal in the play-offs of the Champions League and then couls not survive the group stage of the Europa League, with opponents Wisła Kraków, Fulham and FC Twente.
Over the years, the Danes have supplied some forty players to the Danish national team and, in addition, a multitude from their youth academy has managed to advance to professional football. Now this are, for example, Christian Eriksen (Tottenham), Daniel Høgh (Heerenveen), Kasper Larsen (IFK Norrköping), Mathias Jørgensen (Red Bull New York) and Jacob Rasmussen (Empoli).

As mentioned above, the good youth education of the club is responsible for producing so many talented players. The current U19 team also counts many talents, including six youth internationals. Hans Christian Bernat has been selected for Denmark U19, Christian Vestergaard for U18, Daniel Obbekjær, Mathias Brems and Valdemar Ibsen for U17 and Peter Bergmann plays in the U19 team of the Faroe Islands.
The team of coach Kim Engstrøm seems to be a real tournament team. Last year Odense BK won the Copa del Agatha and the International Youth Tournament of Roda ’46 in our country. In their own country, the team won the Kai Thor Cup last year and this year.
