History

In 1973, the team started as the Nissan Motors F.C. based in Yokohama, and were promoted to the Japan Soccer League Division 2 in 1976. It took necessary steps like building a friendly relationship with local high schools and universities and starting junior teams for school kids to be a winning team. Under the first paid or professional team manager in Japan Shu Kamo, the team won championships in 1988 and 1989 as well as the JSL Cup and Emperor's Cup winning all three major tournaments in Japan at that time.

In 1991, it was one of the founding members of the J. League. In 1998, after losing one of their primary sponsors, it was announced that crosstown rivals Yokohama Flügels would merge with Marinos. Since then, an F was added to the name to represent the Flügels half of the club. Many Flügels fans rejected the merger, rather believing their club to have been dissolved into Marinos. As a result, they refused to follow F. Marinos and instead created Yokohama F.C., F. Marinos' new crosstown rivals.

The team's home stadiums are Nissan Stadiummarker, otherwise know as International Stadium Yokohama, and Mitsuzawa Stadiummarker. However, the squad trains in the newly constructed Marinos Townmarker in the Minato Miraimarker area of Yokohama.
