History

Shenyang City F.C. was established by former footballer Zhuang Yi in 2015 with free players from Shenyang Zhongze F.C. which dissolved just before the 2015 China League One season. They enrolled in the 2015 China Football Amateur League, finished in the top 4, and gained promotion to China League Two, before changing the English name of the club to Shenyang Urban F.C.

The club had a lengthy stay in China League Two, making it to the play-off stage twice, in the 2016 and 2018 seasons, but fell short in the first round both times. During the 2018 season, on 12 May 2018, Zhuang Yi, the owner of the club, appeared in a 7–1 home win over Baotou Nanjiao to become the oldest ever player of Chinese professional league at the age of 44 years and 305 days. Zhuang renewed his record on 3 June 2018 in a 4–0 win against Yanbian Beiguo and scored a penalty in the match, making him the oldest scorer in the Chinese professional league at the age of 44 years and 327 days. The club’s effort finally came to fruition in the 2019 China League Two, when they were crowned as champions after beating Chengdu Better City in the finals, as well as gaining a historical promotion to China League One.

In April 2020, the club changed their name to Liaoning Shenyang Urban FC.
