History

Dobrudzha was founded as a union of three clubs, Vihar, Orlov and Slavia, in 1916. The club assumed the names Cherveno zname, Spartak and Septemvri between 1949 and 1957, when it was renamed Dobrudzha after a few other local sport associations joined, and qualified for the A PFG in 1962, where it has remained a total of 14 non-continuous seasons, with the 7th place in 1995–96 being the best achievement. Dobrudja has also spent a total of 45 seasons in B PFG, which the team won in 1966.

In 2001, the team managed to return to the top-flight. However, the team was relegated back after only one season. Since then, the team has been bouncing between the second and third tiers of Bulgarian football.

In 2018, Dobrudzha returned to the second tier by winning the 2017–18 Northeast Third League. The team, however, struggled in the second tier, finishing last. In the 2019–20 season, Dobrudzha once more finished first in the third tier, promoting again to the second tier after the season was finished early in March, due to the COVID-19 epidemic in Bulgaria.
