The team began to play its games on some quickly cleared up area for a football(soccer) field. Simultaneously, the construction of a new stadium started as well. The main and only sponsor of the team was a local chemical plant, the director (Vsevolod Stepanov) of which decided to change the name for the team to "Tytan" in 1973. The name was introduced to symbolize the power, in sport as well, of the real giant of chemical industry in the whole southern region of the country. In 1974 the team entered a semi-professional competition. In the same year "Tytan" received at its exploitation a new stadium, "Khimik" (5000 seats).
