The club was founded as Homenmen-FIMA FC in 1992 in the Erebuni District of the Armenian capital Yerevan, representing the sporting club of the Armenian State Institute of Physical Culture. They participated in the first ever Armenian football competition in 1992 after the split-up from the Soviet Union.
