FC Terek Grozny (Russian: А.А. Кадыров Республиканский футбольный клуб Терек Грозный, A.A. Kadyrov Respublikanskiy futbolʹnyy klub Terek Groznyy) is a Chechen football club, currently playing in the Russian Premier League.
Originally founded in 1946, as Dynamo, it changed its name in 1948 to Neftyanik and in 1958 to Terek. In the 1990s the club was disbanded for some time due to the war in Chechnya. From the 1990s to 2007 the club played its home games in the neighbouring resort city of Pyatigorsk, Stavropol Krai. Before the start of the 2008 Premier League season, the Russian Football Union granted Terek the right to host Premier League matches in Grozny.
They won the Russian Cup by beating Krylya Sovetov Samara in the final and the Russian First Division in 2004. In 2004 they advanced through the UEFA Cup qualification by beating the Polish team Lech Poznań 1–0 in both legs but lost to Swiss outfit FC Basel in the first round. They played in the Russian Premier League in 2005 but were relegated after finishing last. Terek finished second in the First Division in 2007 and were promoted back into the Premier League.
On 3 July 2008, Terek signed three Romanian players at once: Andrei Margaritescu (Dinamo Bucureşti), Florentin Petre (CSKA Sofia) and Daniel Pancu (Rapid Bucureşti). Terek finished 12th in the 2010 Russian Premier League season.
A new stadium has been built for the club with a capacity of 30,000.
In January 2011 the club signed former Dutch international Ruud Gullit to an 18-month contract to manage the club. On 14 June 2011 Gullit was sacked for poor results. Terek started 2012–13 season well and became leader of Russian Premier League after beating Zenit 2–0 in an away match on 14 September 2012.
