The Adrenaline won their inaugural match 5-1 against Floridians FC on May 11, 2013. Xavier Silva, who also plays for the nearby Florida Gulf Coast University soccer team, scored the team's first-ever goal.[2]

On May 21, 2013 head coach Mick Whitewood was forced to step down and was quickly replaced by John Robinson. The Adrenaline finished in seventh place of the Southeast division in its inaugural season.

In Jan 2015, Chris Cousins was hired as General Manager to the team, in a dual position that also meant he overlooked the college recruitment of the academy players. Cousins was the founder of the world's leading U.S. College Soccer Recruitment Service, Sports Recruiting USA, who were official partners with the club.
