The club was initially known as the "Metro Knights" before a name change to the North Eastern MetroStars in 1998. It started playing in division 2 of the Saturday Amateur league in 1995, won promotion into Division 1, and quickly became the dominant side in the league. The club entered the SASF State League in 1999 and won promotion to the Premier League in its first season. MetroStars has subsequently cemented its position in the top South Australian football league and has developed into one of the league's leading clubs. During the formation of the FFSA and the Super League, MetroStars supported the federation, and in early 2006 was the first club to become a member. They have recently become a more dominant force in the Super League over the last few years winning in both the senior and reserves squads. They have also produced young talents such as Jason Spagnuolo, Fabian Barbiero and Francesco Monterosso, all who have been recruited by Adelaide United F.C. Whilst Adriano Pellegrino and Shane Smeltz have gone onto other A-League clubs books. On 25 August 2012 they won the Federation Cup final against Para Hills Knights for the third time. In September 2012, the club won its third League championship. MetroStars won back to back National Premier League SA Minor Premierships in 2013 and 2014. In October 2014, MetroStars defeated New South Wales outfit Bonnyrigg White Eagles 1-0 to claim the National NPL Championship.
