Their team name Gainare derives from the Tottori dialect word gaina meaning "great" and Italian sperare meaning "to hope".
The club was founded in 1983 as Tottori Teachers' Soccer Club (鳥取教員団サッカー部 Tottori Kyōin Dan Sakkā Bu). They opened their gate to players with other professions in 1989, renaming themselves S.C. Tottori. They adopted their current name in 2007.
After defeating Arte Takasaki 1–0 on October 3, 2010 in their home stadium, at last they could secure JFL top four after failed attempts on two previous seasons. The confirmation from J. League about their promotion to J2 came on November 29. They won the JFL title on October 24, 2010 with five games remaining.
In recent years, they also play some games at Fuse Athletic Park Stadium in Tottori City, Matsue Athletics Stadium in Matsue, Shimane Prefecture and Hamayama Athletic Park Stadium in Izumo, Shimane Prefecture.
