Shahin Pars Junubi Bushehr Football Club (Persian: باشگاه فوتبال شاهین پارس جنوبی بوشهر‎) is an Iranian football club based in Bushehr, Iran. They compete in the 2nd Division and hold home games at Shahid Beheshti Stadium.


Shahin F.C. (1942–1967)[edit]

Shahin F.C. was established in 1942 by Dr.Abbas Ekrami, a teacher.[citation needed]

Many of the players shown in this photo went on to play for Persepolis.

Ekrami founded the club with help of some young students under the motto

اول اخلاق، دوم درس، سوم ورزش
First ethics, second education, third sports.[1]

—Shahin F.C. Motto

Shahin produced many talented players like Parviz Dehdari, Masoud Boroumand, Homayoun Behzadi, Jafar Kashani, Hossein Kalani, Hamid Shirzadegan, and many more that played for Team Melli. These talents made Shahin popular in the 1960s but its very popularity was viewed as a threat by the Iran Football Federation and the Keihan Varzeshi newspaper (Iran's most important sports publication at the time).[2] The conflict between them became worse and on July 9, 1967, two days after Shahin's 3–0 win against Tehranjavan F.C., the Iran Sports Organization declared Shahin F.C. as dissolved.[2] League attendance dropped and other clubs including Pas, Rah Ahan, and Oghab tried to sign Shahin players.


After years of history and competing in different levels of the Iranian football league system, including a 1994-95 appearance in the top division and several years in the second level, Shahin Bushehr was renamed Shahin Pars Jonoubi Bushehr in 2007 and promoted to IPL in 2009. The club is now owned by Pars Special Economic Energy Zone, based in Asalouyeh, Bushehr Province.

Promotion to IPL[edit]

The club recently achieved promotion to the IPL thanks to a 3-2 aggregate playoff victory against Tabriz's Shahrdari Tabriz F.C., joining Tractor Sazi F.C. in the 2009-2010 edition of the Iran Pro League. In the 2009–2010 season, Shahin Bushehr set an interesting record: they did not get any red cards in their matches.


Unfortunately in the 2011-12 season, the same year Shahin were finalists in the Hazfi Cup, the team was relegated to the Azadegan League. Shahin's downward trend continued the following year as they were relegated to the 2nd Division.

Colours and crest[edit]

The common home kit includes a white shirt, black shorts, and white socks. Red and Yellow colours are also seen in the kit. The away kit of the club is commonly with a red background.

Stadium and facilities[edit]

The club currently plays its home games at Bushehr's Shahid Beheshti Stadium with a 15,000 capacity.
