Alashkert Football Club was founded in 1990 in the town of Martuni of Gegharkunik Province. In 1992, the team played in the Premier League representing Martuni and using the City Stadium of the town as their home venue. However, at the end of the season the team finished last in the table, being relegated to the First League. As a result, the club withdrew from the competition.
In 1998, Alashkert FC returned to professional football and participated in the First League finishing the table in the 6th position. In 1999, they did not participate in the First League competition and later in early 2000, the clubs was dissolved.
Revival in 2011
In late 2011, Alashkert FC was re-founded by Bagrat Navoyan; a businessman native of Martuni. They entered the 2012-13 Armenian First League competition and won the championship, booking their position in the Armenian Premier League for the 2013-14 season. In 2012-2013, the team was managed by the former Armenian player Albert Sarkisyan and later by former footballer Sergey Erzrumyan. The assistant manager was Aram Hakobyan.
Relocation to Yerevan in 2013
In February 2013, the club purchased the Nairi Stadium in Yerevan, to become the official venue of their home games. As a result, the club was officially relocated from Martuni to Yerevan starting from the 2013-2014 season.
Between 1990 and 2000, the club was based in the Martuni City Stadium. After the revival in 2011, the team played their home games in several stadiums in Yerevan, mainly at the Nairi Stadium. However, Nairi Stadium -later renamed Alashkert Stadium- became owned by Alashkert FC since February 2013.
The club returned to their own Alashkert Stadium during the 2014–15 Armenian Premier League season.
