History

The team originally went by the name Matsuyama Soccer Club when it was established in 1970, but in 1995 it changed its name to Ehime Football Club. As a result of Matsuyama being represented in the Japan Soccer League by the local team that is affiliated with the Teijin corporation, the organization spent a good deal of time competing in the regional and prefectural leagues.
