CS Tiligul-Tiras Tiraspol was a Moldovan football club based in Tiraspol. They played in the Divizia Naţională, the top division in Moldovan football. Their home stadium was Stadionul Municipal.


Tiligul Tiraspol was the original and oldest football team in Tiraspol, the capital of Transnistria. It was traditionally the city's only team, but in 2002 the team formerly known as Constructorul Chişinău moved to Tiraspol and changed its name to FC Tiraspol, and the same year FC Sheriff was founded as well, thus bringing the number of home teams to three. If the USSR had not dissolved, they would have played in the USSR Top League in 1992, because they were runners-up of the USSR First League in 1991. Since the establishment of the National championship the club along with Zimbru Chişinău were main contenders for the top titles. With establishing of Sheriff Tiraspol, Tiligul has faded away and eventually creased its operations. Sheriff became the best club not only in city, but across the whole Republic of Moldova.

Among its most famous former players is Serghei Covalciuc, who was discovered in 1999 and was hired to play for Spartak Moscow.

Tiligul's colors were crimson shirts and shorts at home and either white shirts and shorts or violet shirts and shorts on the road.

Tiligul-Tiras had to cease operations after they were not able to provide the necessary funds to keep the club alive.[1]

Later the club found agreement with another Moldavian club FC Olimpia, yielding its club's infrastructure for adaptation of the Olimpia's farm team Olimpia-2 as Olimpia-2 Tiligul.
