The club was founded on 29 January 2002. Before the 2011 Esiliiga season, the club merged with FC Bercy and FC Atletik and Aleksandr Pushtov was hired as manager. Infonet finished the 2011 season in second place but were beaten in the promotion play-offs by Kuressaare 1–5 on aggregate. Infonet won the 2012 Esiliiga season and was promoted to the Meistriliiga. The club finished its first season in the Estonian top division in 6th place.
