1992 was the first season Russia held its own national football competition since the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Club competitions[edit]

The teams participating came mostly from the Soviet Union leagues. New Top League had 20 teams, second-level First League had 3 zones and 52 teams in total and third-level Second League had 6 zones with 115 teams. FC Spartak Moscow won the championship.

Cup competitions[edit]

The last, 1991/92 edition of the Soviet Cup was won by FC Spartak Moscow who beat PFC CSKA Moscow in the final game 2–0 on 10 May 1992. Ukrainian teams who were scheduled to play in the quarterfinals, FC Dynamo Kyiv, FC Metalist Kharkiv and FC Chornomorets Odesa all withdrew, giving Spartak, CSKA and FC Pamir Dushanbe spots in the semifinals.

The early stages of the 1992–93 Russian Cup were played later in the year.

European club competitions[edit]

All the Russian teams participating in the 1991–92 seasons of their respective competitions were eliminated in 1991.

The Russian league was not finished by the time of the 1992–93 season, therefore the Russian teams qualified for that season based on the Soviet Top League 1991 results.

UEFA Champions League 1992–93[edit]

PFC CSKA Moscow, surprisingly, qualified for the group stage, unexpectedly knocking out FC Barcelona in the qualification round. They came last in their group though, only gaining 2 points in 6 games. They could not play their home games in Moscow due to the lack of a stadium meeting the Champions League standards at the time.[1]

On 16 August 1992, the Russia national football team played its first game in a friendly against Mexico. The head coach was Pavel Sadyrin.[2]
