FC Rostov (Russian: Футбольный клуб "Ростов") is a Russian football club based in Rostov-on-Don, Rostov Oblast. The club are currently members of the Russian Premier League and play at the Olimp – 2 stadium.[1]

History[edit]

The club was established on 10 May 1930, and was initially named Selmashstroy (Сельмашстрой). They were renamed Selmash in 1936 and Traktor in 1941. In 1950 the club joined the South Zone of the Azov-Don group of the Russian SFSR Championship. The following season they were placed in Group B of the championship. After finishing first in their group, they played in Group A in 1952. A third-place finish meant the club were promoted to the Class B for the 1953 season, during which they were renamed again, becoming Torpedo. In 1958 they were renamed Rostselmash.

In 1964 the club won their Division of Class B. In the Russian-zone play-offs they finished second in the first round and top in the second after defeating Terek Grozny 2–0 in the deciding match, earning promotion to the Soviet First League. The following season they finished bottom of the division, but were not relegated as the number of teams in the division was increased.

By the early 1970s the club was back in the Russian leagues. In 1975 they returned to Class B (now known as the Soviet Second League). Following several near misses, the club won their zone of the Second League in 1985. They went onto win a play-off tournament, earning promotion back to the First League.

In 1991 the club finished fourth in what was the final season of Soviet football following the USSR's disintegration. This was enough to earn them a place in the new Russian Top League. Following an eighth-place finish in their first season, the 1993 season saw the club struggle, eventually finishing second bottom, resulting in relegation to the First League.

The club made an immediate return to the Top League after finishing second in the 1994 First League season. In 2003 they adopted their current name and reached the Russian Cup final for the first time, losing 1–0 to Spartak Moscow.[2] In 2007 they finished bottom of the (now renamed) Premier Division and were relegated to the First Division. However, they made another immediate return to the top division as First Division champions.

Rostov won the 2013–14 Russian Cup, defeating FC Krasnodar on penalties 6-5, and earnt qualification to the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League. However Rostov where excluded from the competition at the end of May 2014, due to breached financial rules, being replaced by Spartak Moscow.[3][4] Later appealed the decision of the local football federation to lift the club from the tournament in the international sports trebunale in Lausanne, the club won the right to play in the Europa League 2014-15.[5]
