The team, originally called Yanmar Diesel began its activities in 1957, as a team of the Yanmar company. She was one of the original founders of the now defunct Japan Soccer League. With four Japanese league titles won, he was a mainstay of the JSL First Division until 1990, when he was relegated and thus joined the former Japan Football League in 1992.
In 1993, the club joined Osaka Football Club Ltd., adopting the name Cerezo after a public tender. The name cerezo comes from the Spanish, which is the cherry tree and Osaka is the capital of cherry trees. In 1994, he won the JFL championship and was promoted to the J-League in 1995. This also coincided with the arrival of the Emperor's Cup final, where he was defeated by Bellmare Hiratsuka. This was the last final so far, in which a non-top club was one of the finalists.
In 2001, he finished in last place and was relegated to the J2 League. However, he managed to finish second in the 2002 season, returning to J1 in 2003.
In 2005 he came close to becoming j-league champion, and led the league for a certain period. In their final match, in dispute with FC Tokyo, the team was just minutes away from winning the title. However, FC Tokyo equalised in the 89th minute, and a number of other goals in other matches put the team in 5th place, with archrival Gamba Osaka, originally made up of players from Yanmar Club, former Yanmar Diesel's B team, as the championship winner.
Cerezo's team returned to J2 for the 2007 season after finishing in penultimate place in 2006. At this time the club featured coach Levir Culpi, who brought a new philosophy to the team, returning access, and making Levir one of the club's idols. In 2009, the team was promoted and returned to the first division.
Cerezo Osaka is recognized as one of the great barns of young Japanese football players such as Shinji Kagawa, Hiroshi Kiyotake, Yoichiro Kakitani, among others.
