The club is backed by the Hoyo Group, a digital camera and auto parts manufacturer based in nearby Kunisaki. In 2010 they changed their name to Hoyo Atletico Elan Oita. In 2011, they changed their name to Hoyo AC Elan Oita, they won the Kyushu Championship and then earned third place in the Regional League promotion series, and qualified to compete in the JFL beginning in 2012. In 2012, they changed their name to Hoyo Oita.

In December 2013, the club tried to get closer ties to the community and therefore made another name change, this time to Verspah Oita (ヴェルスパ大分, Verspah Ōita), for 2014 season onwards. [3]
