Formation as Airdrie United

The club was formed in 2002 as Airdrie United, following the bankruptcy of the original Airdrieonians (1878).

Airdrieonians (1878) had finished runners-up in the Scottish First Division in the 2001/02 season but went out of business with debts approaching 3 million, their last ever match being played against Ayr United.  The collapse of "The Diamonds", as they were known due to their distinctive kits, created a vacancy in the Scottish Third Division.

Accountant and Airdrieonians fan Jim Ballantyne attempted, with the help of others, to gain entry with a club called  "Airdrie United" who were essentially to be a reincarnation of  Airdrieonians.  Their application however was rejected as the then English Northern Premier League side Gretna were preferred by league members over the new Airdrie United.

Airdrie United then went on to complete a buy-out of the ailing Second Division side Clydebank and with SFL approval the club was relocated to Airdrie, the strips were transformed to resemble that of the old Airdrieonians, and the  name was changed to Airdrie United.

While this means that the club is  therefore officially a continuation of Clydebank it is almost  universally accepted as a reincarnation of Airdrieonians, with Clydebank having been reformed by supporters groups and entering into the West Region Junior League.
