Vegalta Soccer Club was initially established in 1988 under the name Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc. Soccer Club. In 1999, the club became a member of the J-League after having spent some time competing in the JFL under the name Brummell Sendai. In 1995, the club was promoted from the Tohoku Regional League to the JFL. When Vegalta joined the J-League, they decided to pay honor to Sendai’s well-known Tanabata celebration by naming their team after the festival.

The names Vega and Altair, which were given to two different heavenly stars in the Tanabata mythology, were merged to produce the name Vegalta. In 2002, they were awarded promotion to the highest level of competition for the first time; however, the following year, the team was demoted to a lower level. They were given the promotion once more for the season of 2010.

Despite the earthquake and tsunami that occurred in 2011, they were able to attain their best rank to that point, which was fourth place in the premier division. In 2012, despite leading the table for the majority of the season, Sanfrecce Hiroshima’s challenge proved to be too strong.

They lost the penultimate week game to relegation battler Albirex Niigata, which cost them the title and elevated them to their highest position in history as second-place winners. Despite leading the table for the majority of the season, Sanfrecce Hiroshima’s challenge proved to be too strong. In 2018, the Vegalta finished in second place in the Emperor’s Cup, but the Urawa Reds were able to take home the trophy.
