The Club was founded in 1999 as DV8 Soccer Club by Tono Aspinelli. The team competed in the Peninsula Soccer League (PSL). The name DV8 was a play on words for the word "deviate." Referring to the way a team maneuvered the ball up and down the pitch; Tono believed the best often "deviated" away from rigid and structured formations in order to secure victory and wanted DV8 to reflect that style of play. The original colors of DV8 were white, blue and black.
