Esmaeil Halali was named head coach on 12 November 2010, replacing Hossein Abdi. In July 2013, C team and former first-team manager Vinko Begović was promoted as B team's head coach but he resigned three months later to become head coach of a Azadegan League side club. Former team captain Mojtaba Moharrami was appointed as team's head coach on 30 October 2013.


The club was founded in 2009 as the reserve or second team of Persepolis signing talented youth players of the club. They became champion of Tehran Province League and promoted to 3rd Division.[2] In 2013 due to financial issues the club decided to temporarily disband the team and instead Persepolis' young talents played for the U–21's.
