The previous Kawasaki Steel Mizushima F.C., who are now known as Vissel Kobe, moved to Kobe in 1975, which is when the new club was established. The former members of the club got together and established a new organization that they called the “River Free Kickers” (RFK).

Following then, the club participated for several years in the prefectural league. They started their ascent up the ranks in 2003 after adopting the name “Fagiano Okayama” as their stage name.

The year 2005 saw Fagiano Okayama’s entry into the Chugoku Regional League as a promoted team. Fagiano was the first club in history to achieve J. League Associate Membership in July of 2007, despite the fact that the team was still competing in a level that was lower than the JFL.

As a result of taking first position in the games that determined who would advance to the regional playoffs, Fagiano was granted promotion to the JFL on December 2, 2007. They qualified for J. League promotion in 2008 by finishing in fourth place in the final JFL match week, placing them below Tochigi S.C. and Kataller Toyama; on December 1, the promotion was made official by J. League, and Okayama competed in J2 for the first time in 2009. Okayama Gas is their primary sponsor, and the Sanyo Shinbun, which is a local newspaper in Okayama, is one of their back sponsors.
