The club was initially established in 1956 under the name Kanazawa Soccer Club, then in 2006 it changed its name to reflect its current identity. It wasn’t until the late 2000s that Kanazawa had many opportunities to climb higher in Japan’s football levels.

Prior to that time, the Hokushinetsu region was dormant in terms of football for a long time, and its potential didn’t become apparent until Albirex Niigata led the way. Following a third-place performance in the 2009 All Japan Regional Football Promotion League Series, they earned promotion to the JFL on December 19, 2009, after defeating FC Kariya in the promotion/relegation playoff with an aggregate score of 2–1. This victory earned them promotion to the JFL.

In order to submit an application for associate membership in the J-League, on December 15, 2010, a new management company that was given the name Zweigen, Inc. was founded.

On January 7, 2011, the club submitted its application for associate membership in the J-League. Zweigen won the first ever J3 League championship on November 16, 2014, and as a result, they were granted permission to play in the J. League Division 2 for the 2015 season. This means that they will be playing in the second highest level of club football in Japan.
