The club was founded in 2008 as a participant of the second tier of Latvian football.

They were automatically promoted to the top tier of Latvian football. The following season in the Latvian Higher League was unexpectedly successful, as they took up the 5th position in the league table.

In 2012 and 2013 Jūrmala found itself in the middle of the table, taking the 6th position. In 2014 the club finished the league in the 10th position, followed by economic problems and sanctions from the Latvian Football Federation due to long-term debts and unpaid wages. In the end, FC Jūrmala ended up last in the league table and was relegated to the Latvian First League.

The financial problems of the club were not solved and the team did not apply for a First League licence. Ultimately, the club asked to be expelled from the Latvian Football Federation on 31 March 2015 and folded.
