History[edit]

Aktobe was founded in 1967 as Aktyubinets. They played their first three seasons in the Class B Division, fourth tier of the Soviet League system. For the next 7 seasons they were not active in official tournaments. In 1976, the club joined the Soviet Second League, to play in its Zone 7, and in 1981 they won the championship . In 1990, the team recorded a 10–0 victory over Bulat, which remains the club's biggest victory on record. In the 1991 season, the last year of Sovier League existence, the club won Zone 8 Championship.[1]

Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the club joined the newly formed Kazakhstan Premier League. In 1994, Aktyubinets reached Kazakhstan Cup final, which they lost to Vostok with a score of 0–1. In 1996, the club changed name to Aktobemunai. However, after one season they renamed again to Aktobe. As the result of reduction of league teams in 1997, Aktobe was relegated to the Kazakhstan First Division. In the 2000 season, the club won Kazakhstan First Division and were promoted to the Kazakhstan Premier League.[1]

Vladimir Mukhanov managed the team between 2006 to 2012.

On 20 July 2015, Ioan Andone was appointed as the clubs manager.[3] After finishing Third in the league, on 10 November 2015, Andone left the club after his contract wasn't extended.[4] On 22 December 2015, Yuri Utkulbayev was announced as Aktobe new manager.[5]
