The predecessor of the club is considered to have originated from the Hai Phong Police Football Team. This is the only team of the city "red phoenix flowers" survived after the subsidy was removed while a series of other strong port city dissolved as Hai Phong Power, Hai Phong Port, or Previously Hai Phong Cement.

After the 2001–02 season, when again to play in the First Division, found no longer suitable for the new professional football was built in Vietnam, Hai Phong Police Department has decided to transfer the team.

But this model is not very successful, the team continues to swing between professional and first-class.

On 16 October 2007, Hai Phong Department of Physical Training and Sports assigned Hai Phong Cement Company to manage and operate. The club was renamed Haiphong Cement, causing a slight confusion with a company of the same name that existed before the company during the subsidy period.

In 2014, the host unit Vicem paid the club back to the city, the team changed its name to Hai Phong Football Club. Despite the lack of financial strength as the cement season, the team has a better result than before: the 2014 national cup champion, by 2015 had the time leading the V-League rankings.

In 2016, Hai Phong club, although not highly regarded, has led the V League for most of the season. Notably, the series won seven consecutive games in the first seven rounds of the tournament. Unfortunately, due to shortness of breath in the last rounds. Hanoi T&T won the championship with a regrettable score and lost only the secondary. Anyhow, the club has a successful season beyond expectations.
