History

The club was founded in 1968 by members of IL Oygard. These members protested against the IL Oygard board's decision regarding who should become the club's new head coach and therefore created a new club called IL Nest. Karstein Lunde was elected as IL Nest's first chairman. The name was changed to IL Nest-Sotra in 1994. They did not play in the league system before 1972 when they lost their debut game 2–3 against Laksevag TIL.

The team played in the 2. divisjon between 1995 and 1998 and from 2001 to 2003 and after a few years in lower leagues, the team again played in the 2. divisjon in 2008. The club won promotion to the 1. divisjon for the first time in 2013. In 2019, Nest-Sotra decided that their elite license, from 2020 and onwards, will be taken over by the new club Oygarden FK, which is a cooperation between Nordre Fjell, Sund SK, Skogsvag IL, Telavag IL, Skjergard IL and Nest-Sotra. The decision was announced by the club on 26 September 2019 and among the reasons for their decision was the club's lack of financial control. During the 2019 season, Nest-Sotra were deducted a total of four points due to financial difficulties.
