The club was founded as Voldens TF in 1899 as a gymnastics club. Other sports were added later; football in 1916. The name was changed to Volda TI in 1945.[2] In 1998, the club was organized as an alliance sports team, which had two overarching legal entities: Football and general sports (Allidrett). It currently has sections for association football, alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, swimming, frisbee-golf and children's athletics.[3] The handball branch of the club in 2007 split from the Alliance and formedthe Volda Handballclub.[4]
