The Colts originally began in 2006 as the Augusta Spartans of the American Indoor Football League. After a mediocre season, they played in the World Indoor Football League in 2007. During the year, the Spartans went 8–6, defeated the Osceola Ghostriders in the opening round of the playoffs, and won the World Indoor Bowl over the Columbus Lions.
For the 2008, the team moved back to the renamed American Indoor Football Association and renamed themselves the Augusta Colts.
In a press release, it was announced that the Colts would sit out the 2009 season, yet return for the 2010 season.
Another press release since then reported that for the 2010 season, the Colts will play in the Southern Indoor Football League.
On November 16, 2009 a group of investors held a press conference with John Sisson saying that they had purchased the team. However, on December 5, 2009 the deal could not be reached and the group deciding to start a new team in Augusta as a member of the SIFL. The Colts have now suspended operations indefinitely.
