History[edit]

The glorious past[edit]

The club was founded in 1922 as part of the All-Union Sport Society "Dinamo" that had its different sport clubs in variety of sports throughout the whole Soviet Union. That society was the main sposor of the club at that time. Dinamo debuted in the Soviet Top League in 1936 among the original seven teams in the very first edition of the Soviet Top League. The club reentered the Soviet Top League right after the World War II as the member of the interrupted edition of 1941. The club then participated in the Top League between 1936 and 1954, finishing in the top five, three times. In 1954, however, it was decided to replace Dynamo with another club, TRL, after the people in charge of football in Saint Petersburg were left unimpressed with the team's tenth place finish in the League. From 1955-1961, they had only Jewish striker, Israel "Zolik" Olshanetsky.

The new beginning[edit]

Coincidentally, the club was resurrected in 1960 in place of the TRL and spent the next two seasons in "Class B", the second tier of the Soviet league pyramid, before finding its way back to the Top Division.

The other Dark Ages[edit]

Dynamo lost its professional status in 2000, because of the lack of financing. The club, however, was immediately re-established by a local building society, but lost its professional status once again in 2004.

FC Petrotrest Saint Petersburg[edit]

The new Dynamo Saint Petersburg was established on the base of another Saint Petersburg club FC Petrotrest Saint Petersburg in 2007. After their relegation from the Russian First Division in 2010, they returned to the name Petrotrest and a new team was established as FC Dynamo to play in the Amateur Football League.
