FC Tiraspol was a Moldovan football club based in Tiraspol, Moldova. They play in the Divizia Naţională, the top division in Moldovan football.

Founded in 1992 as Constructorul Chișinău, it entered the Moldovan National Division in 1995–96 season, winning its only title in 1996–97 and Moldovan Cups in 1996 and 2000. The club then relocated in 2001 to Cioburciu before moving to Tiraspol the year after. Despite the latter two settlements being in the breakway republic of Transnistria, their clubs play in the Moldovan league system.

History[edit]

Constructorul Chisinau[edit]

The side was founded in 1992 as Constructorul Chisinau, and played in Chisinau, the Moldovan capital. It entered the Moldovan National Division in 1995–96 season. Constructorul won their first silverware, the 1996 Moldovan Cup with a 2–1 win over Tiligul Tiraspol, and the next season won their only Moldovan National Division title by denying city rivals Zimbru Chișinău a sixth consecutive triumph.[2] The league triumph earnt Constructorul a place in the 1997-98 UEFA Champions League, where they were knocked out by Czech club Slavia Prague 4–3 on aggregate in the first qualifying round.[3] In 2000 Constructorul won their second Cup, by beating Zimbru 1–0 in the final on 24 May.[4]

The club also participated in the UEFA Cup during the Constructorul era. In September 2000, the club was banned from appearing in European competitions for a year following a number of security breaches in a home match against Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia.[5]

Move to Transnistria[edit]

Before the 2001–02 season, the club relocated to Cioburciu, a small village outside Tiraspol, the capital of the breakaway republic of Transnistria, and was renamed Constructorul Cioburciu. The following season, the club moved into Tiraspol and became its current entity. The club has not won a Cup or National Division title since leaving Chisinau.

The only major European campaign since leaving Chisinau was the 2004-05 UEFA Cup. The club defeated Armenian team Shirak in the first qualifying round (4–1 on aggregate) [6] before a 5–1 aggregate elimination by Metalurh Donetsk of the Ukraine in the next round.[7]
