PJM Futures was originally founded in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka in 1987 as the team of PJM Japan, a company based on Paul J. Meyer's U.S. academy Success (the company name came from Meyer's initials). The club moved to Tosu, Saga in 1995, changing its name to Tosu Futures. This happened one year after joining the former Japan Football League's Division 2 (which was merged into a single JFL division in 1994). In January, 1997, Tosu future caught the withdrawal of PJM Japan and was dissolved. In February, 1997, Sagan Tosu was established.
