FC Torpedo Moscow (Russian: ФК "Торпедо" Москва, FK Torpedo Moskva) is a football club, based in Moscow, Russia. The club was founded in 1924. On 19 March 2009, it was denied membership of the Professional Football League (the organization that conducted the competition in the Russian First Division and Russian Second Division) and did not play in the professional competitions in 2009.[1] On 3 April 2009, representatives of the new owner of FC Torpedo Moscow, ZiL, appealed that decision.[2] As the deadline for 2009 registration passed, FC Torpedo Moscow was not reinstated in the Second Division and Torpedo-ZIL remained the only professional Torpedo for 2009. Torpedo Moscow won the Moscow Region of Amateur Football League in 2009. On 22 December 2009, Torpedo passed licensing and played in the Russian Second Division in 2010 (Zone Center).[3] They beat Gubkin 1–0 at home on 30 October 2010, and became champions of Zone Center of Second Division in the 2010 season. This meant Torpedo was promoted to Russian First Division after three seasons with making two successive promotions. In the 2013-14 season Torpedo finished 3rd in the Russian First Division and qualified for the promotion play off where they were vying for promotion to the Russian Premier League. They faced Krylya Sovetov Samara in the play offs. Torpedo won the first leg with goals from Alexander Salugin and Oleg Vlasov which meant they took a 2-0 lead going into the away leg. The second leg finished 0-0 meaning Torpedo won 2-0 on aggregate and won promotion whilst Krylya were relegated to the First Division.

Club history[edit]

Torpedo Moscow Football Club (based on Proletarskaya Kuznitsa teams) was formed in 1930 by the AMO automotive plant (soon to be Stalin Automotive Plant - ZIS and later Likhachev Automotive Plant - ZIL).

They played in the Moscow League until 1936 when they became one of the founder members of the Soviet 'B' League and changed their name to Torpedo Moscow. In 1938 they were promoted to the 'A' League.

Torpedo have won the National League Championship on three occasions, and have lifted the National Cup seven times. In 1957 Torpedo Moscow, as well as other Soviet sport clubs named "Torpedo", became a part of the republican VSS Trud of the Russian SFSR. Nicknamed the Black-Whites, Torpedo hasn't been a major force in Russian football since the days of Eduard Streltsov, the brilliant striker of the 1950s and 1960s, known as "the Russian Pele". Past glories for Torpedo include 3 USSR titles (1960, 1965, and autumn 1976), 6 USSR Cups (1949, 1952, 1960, 1968, 1972, 1986), 1 Russian Cup (1993), and three appearances in the quarterfinals of European/UEFA Cup competition, and one Ciutat de Lleida Trophy in 1991. The club used to belong to the ZIL automobile plant until a fallout in the mid-1990s that resulted in Torpedo leaving their historic ground and moving across town to Luzhniki, as they became property of the Luzhniki corporation and its name was changed to Torpedo-Luzhniki between (1996–1997) before it was renamed as Torpedo Moscow.

After selling Torpedo Moscow in 1996, ZIL created a new team Torpedo-ZIL (1997), which made a debut in the Third Division and reached the Russian Premier League in 2000. However, ZIL sold the team to MMC Norilsk Nickel in 2003 and it was relaunched as FC Moscow. Eventually this team was dissolved after spending 2010 season in Amateur Football League when their owner and main sponsor, MMC Norilsk Nickel withdrew funding.

After selling Torpedo-ZIL (1997) in 2003, ZIL created another team Torpedo-ZIL (2003), which also started in the Third Division, yet this team was eventually disbanded in 2011 after its efforts to seek promotion to the First Division did not succeed.

Under SC Luzhniki ownership (1996–2009), Torpedo Moscow relegated to the First Division in 2006 and after two seasons it further relegated to the Second Division. In early 2009, Luzhniki sold the team back to ZiL.[4] It was speculated that ZIL would merge Torpedo Moscow and Torpedo-ZIL (2003). However, this did not happen and rather Torpedo Moscow spent 2009 in the Amateur Football League and they achieved 2 consecutive promotions to gain a spot in the First Division from 2011. In their first season back in the First Division, Torpedo Moscow finished in 8th spot during the first half of the tournament at the end of 2011 taking them through to a Top 8 Promotion play-off during the second half.
