The club was formed in 1962 as Eastern Rangers Football Club. In 1975, the club was renamed Ferro metals United F.C. This was due to a sponsorship deal from Ferro metals. The club continued under the name until 2000, when Ferro metals stopped its sponsorship of the club. The club then took the name Witbank Spurs F.C. The club was again renamed in 2001, to Peoples Bank Spurs, due to a sponsorship agreement with People Bank.
