Erchim is a football club from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia who have been playing in the Mongolian Premier League, which they have won ten times,[2] since its inaugural year in 1996.[1] The team plays the away games in the National Sports Stadium (Mongolia). They play their home matches in front of power plant 4 on their little but glorious stadium. The Mongolian Football Federation applied to enter the 2012 AFC President's Cup,[3] and was approved by the AFC in November 2011,[4] and made their debut in the competition.[5] As winners of the 2012 Super Cup, Erchim were awarded the place in the competition.[4] Erchim won again the Mongolian championship of 2015 showing a well organized way of playing and a good way of training. In 2017 the club qualified for the AFC Cup for the first time, becoming the first Mongolian club to do so.[6]

While all other Ulaanbaatar clubs share the MFF Football Centre as a home stadium, Erchim has its own stadium.[7]
