The club was formed in 2003 as Hoyo Sukarabu F.C. In 2005 they changed their name to Hoyo Atlético Club Elan Oita, the name in which they competed for many years in the Kyushu Football League. The club is backed by the Hoyo Group, a digital camera and auto parts manufacturer based in nearby Kunisaki. In 2011 they won the Kyushu Championship and then earned third place in the Regional Promotion Series, and will compete in the JFL beginning in 2012.

In early December 2013 the club try to be closer to the community, with name of the club changed to Verspah Oita (ヴェルスパ大分 Verspah Ōita?), for 2014 season onwards.[2]
