Al-Hussein were founded in 1999 and they entered the 2002/03 Iraqi FA Cup where they were knocked out in the first round by Al-Tharthar on penalties. Al-Hussein spent many years in the second tier of Iraqi football, coming close to promotion a number of times, but it wasn’t until the 2015/16 season that they actually managed it as they won the lower division ahead of runners-up Al-Bahri. They also performed admirably in the 2015/16 Iraqi FA Cup, going all the way to the quarter-finals where they shocked eventual Iraqi Premier League champions Al-Zawraa by handing them their first defeat of the season with a 2-1 win, although Al-Zawraa managed to recover the tie in the second leg and knock Al-Hussein out 4-3 on aggregate.
