The club was founded on 5 January 1911 as Qasr El-Neel Club and was first headed by Belgian lawyer George Marzbach. The name was changed to El-Mokhtalat Club in 1913 and was named after King Farouk in 1941 to King Farouk Club, before finally settling as Zamalek SC after the 1952 Egyptian revolution.
