USSR era[edit]

In 1936 Dynamo Aktyubinsk took part in the first season of the Soviet Cup. In the last 64 they hosted CDKA Moscow, losing at home 0:4. Since that city of Aktobe had no major football for 30 years.

The first success of Aktobe came in 1966, when team that was created on the basis of the Aktoberoentgen factory fitness club became champions of Kazakh SSR. Official history of FC Aktobe started in 1967, when Aktyubinets was given status of professional team. They played for three seasons, however for the next seven it disappeared from view in lower divisions of USSR championships. All in all, the club were zonal winners of Soviet Second League (Third tier) on two occasions.

Kazakhstan[edit]

Thus, from the fourth tier of the Soviet championship the team was placed in the Supreme League of Kazakhstan. Its participation in the early championship was rather poor as the club consistently finished in the lower half of the league table (places 9 through 14). The only single success of that period came in 1994 when the club placed fourth in the national championship and reached the final of the national cup. In the final at the Almaty Central Stadium in the presence of one thousand spectators "Aktyubinets" met "Vostok" Ust-Kamenogorsk and lost 0:1.

In the mid-nineties in Kazakhstan many cities regained their previous names. In 1996 the club was renamed Aktyubinets, but a year later it changed once more, this time to "Aktobe". The club was relegated in 1997 and returned to the top flight in the new century. Revival occurred when under the name "Aktobe-Lento" the team won the league In 2001. In the next three seasons (2002–2004) the team placed 4th-5th. In the following season the team lost a prefix and again there was "Aktobe".

In 2005 they won the Kazakh championship, and could therefore participate in the 14th cup of champions of Commonwealth of CIS for 2006, and the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League.

They won the Kazakh league again in 2007.

They were runners-up in the CIS cup in 2009.

Vladimir Mukhanov coached Aktobe from 2006 to 2012.

In 2009/10 they reached the 3rd Qualifying round of the Champions League.

The longest in the history performance of clubs from Kazakhstan in the European football tournaments came to the end. In two qualifying rounds of the Champions League of UEFA and a stage the playoffs of League of Europe of "Aktobe" hammered to the rivals of 12 balls and as much passed in the gate.

Having beaten in the transferred match of the 18th round of the championship of Kazakhstan (2009) kostanayskiya "Tobol" with the score 5:2, "Aktobe" provided to itself the first place in standings. Thus "Aktobe" becomes the champion of Kazakhstan in the fourth разв the history. Besides, "Aktobe" became the first club which won a champion title three times in a row in national championship. In one of meetings with journalists of the city, the secretary general of Federation of football of Kazakhstan of Sayan Mountains Hamitzhanov noted that the football club "Aktobe" is pride and the card of the Kazakhstan football, also triumph of team in a season of 2009 is brilliant performances on the Commonwealth Cup, the Champions League and in national championship.
